The claimant collided with a tractor, causing catastrophic injuries to his pelvis. After multiple failed hip replacements, the claimant had an ice cream cone implant fitted, but this was unfortunately not likely to be a long-term solution. The claimant was very likely to require amputation through the hip in the future and would require substantial care and assistance. The matter proceeded to a joint settlement meeting, but did not settle at this stage. It was however, subsequently settled for £3 million. Liability had been resolved on a 50/50 basis, and so the claimant received £1.5 million.
