Successful Serious Injury Claims
Multiple injuries following car accident
Christalla represented a 76-year-old woman who was knocked down by a car when it mounted the pavement. She suffered a broken neck, fractures to her spine, ribs, pelvis and right ankle as well as damage to her liver, kidney and spleen. Christalla’s client needed a tracheotomy which led to a narrowing of the windpipe and reconstructive surgery more than a year after the accident. The operation meant she was fed through a tube for a year. Christalla settled the claim for £180,000 plus the cost of private surgery to save the client waiting for NHS treatment.
Lift engineer electrocuted at work
Christalla acted for the widow of a lift engineer who suffered a fatal electric shock while at work. Christalla secured £300,000 in compensation for her client and represented the widow during the Coroner’s inquest.
Cyclist suffered brain damage
Christalla represented a cyclist, aged 55, who sustained a severe traumatic brain injury after being hit by a car. He was admitted to intensive care for seven days following a craniotomy and lobectomy, and developed epilepsy as a result of his injuries, as well suffering from a loss of sense of smell and taste. Christalla secured £165,000 by way of compensation for her client.
Brain damage following road traffic accident
Christalla acted for a pedestrian who was hit by a car and sustained brain damage which left him in a coma for several days. He was no longer able to continue with his employment. Christalla arranged for early specialist rehabilitation to assist in supporting the client’s treatment. Christalla secured a six figure sum to compensate her client for his injuries and the fact that he could no longer work.
