David Boobyer is an injury claims specialist at Tollers solicitors. His expertise includes road traffic, workplace and highway accidents. He deals with complex spinal injuries.
David has more than 20 years’ experience of running injury cases and has successfully settled numerous claims of high value, including spinal injury cases. In serious injury cases the medics will treat the injured person’s immediate needs and begin the recovery and rehabilitation process. At this point access to an experienced lawyer such as David is vital to ensure that things are put in place for a long term recovery plan, with access to paid-for assessments, specialist Doctors and early release of interim compensation payments to maximise rehabilitation, treatment and support. Assistance can also be given to the family who depend on the finances you provide.
Do you have links with the specialist charity, the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA)?
Yes, we are a partner of the SIA and work with them to provide outstanding services and support to those who have suffered spinal injury. The Spinal Injury Association are Tollers chosen charity of the year and we are taking part in many challenges to raise crucial funds for such a fantastic charity.
How do you progress a spinal injury claim?
After agreeing to act with the benefit of your own legal expense insurance or under a ‘No Win No Fee’ agreement, we would report the claim to the Defendant’s insurer and seek an initial assessment to see what can be done to support or treat you. We would obtain medical evidence from a specialist and work closely to ensure rehabilitation. Once you have completed your rehabilitation and treatment we would seek settlement of the claim.
What is the value of a spinal injury claim?
Each settlement may vary depending on the severity. A few examples are:
- £1.05m - for a Doctor following a head-on road traffic collision with a lorry;
- £625k – for a medic after slipping on spilt liquid at a night club;
- £80k – for a railway worker who slipped on ice at his employer’s work premises.
