Case date 2020-11-17
Case type Personal Injury
Practice area Litigation
This Personal Injury case produced two pivotal precedents for PI litigation in Bermuda - the extent of compensation which can be claimed under what might have historically been considered too remote for an aggrieved party and how the Court can address claims which have stalled during the Court process for protracted periods of time.
Judgment was granted in this case and an award totalling over $700,000.00 was obtained after 6 years from injury to claim and 13 years of litigation.
