Oliver's case 2009


'O' was a passenger in a car when the driver lost control. The vehicle left the road and collided with a dry stone wall. 'O' suffered a severe traumatic head injury, which left him with profound cognitive and emotional difficulties; right sided hemipareses with atexiam; right sided loss of normal sensation; visual disturbances; some inability to understand what is said to him; impaired sense of smell and taste and bladder and some bowel incontinence. As a result he was left wheelchair bound requiring 24 hour care and is a patient within the meaning of the Mental Capacity Act 2005. On 14 July 2008, Mr Justice Swift approved an agreement for over £2.1 million lump sum and £120,000 per annum for care.
