Stuart McKechnie QC and Helen Pooley settle birth brain injury claim for capital equivalent of just under £33.2 million

News | Tue 1st Mar, 2022

Stuart McKechnie QC and Helen Pooley have settled a long running birth brain injury claim for £11.8 million plus PPOs of £315,000 rising to £345,000 across the Claimant’s lifetime. This case was viewed by all of experts involved as uniquely complex, with the Claimant’s hugely experienced neuropsychological expert commenting “I do not recall such a challenging birth injury case in my clinical and legal work over 35 years”. This outcome represents one of the largest ever clinical negligence settlements and provides for all of the Claimant’s future needs. The settlement was approved at the High Court on 28th February 2022 where Mr Justice Ritchie commended the efforts of both parties to arrive at this outcome.

Stuart and Helen were instructed by Caroline Klage, Claudia Hillemand and Mollie Benjamin at Bolt Burdon Kemp.
