Cerys Edwards, then still a baby, received very severe neurological injuries in November 2006 when the car in which she was travelling was struck by a speeding Range Rover.

Margaret Bowron QC, acting for the Defendant Insurers, successfully negotiated an inevitably high-value settlement which was based upon a future care package requiring nurses to look after Cerys as she is permanently ventilated and tube fed. Very substantial interim payments had been made over the last 5½ years and the importance of finally resolving the claim was considerable to both sides.
