  • Overview

    This case study demonstrates the expertise of our Personal Injury team who represented a client in an unusual case involving a rugby match.

    The claimant was refereeing the rugby match when a full water bottle, estimated to be about  2kg in weight, was thrown at his head by one of the players, causing him to lose consciousness and sustain a brain injury.

    As well as sustaining what was classified as a ‘minor’ acquired brain injury (ABI) the claimant was also diagnosed with post-concussional syndrome. He was unable to continue to referee rugby matches as his injuries meant he was could not make quick decisions and keep up with the speed of the game.

    The matter proceeded against the individual who had thrown the bottle rather than the rugby club itself.

    We negotiated settlement on behalf of the claimant who received a five-figure sum for his injuries.

    Our dedicated personal injury team specialises in head injury claims. This case was run by Jonathan Clement, Partner and Head of the Personal Injury team, assisted byLorna Buckwell throughout.

    We have one of the leading personal injury departments in the South East of England and are proud to have a very strong reputation for accident claims and the depth and range of experience to provide you with an excellent service, whatever the nature of your claim.
