In Ali v. (1) Osborne (2) Motor Insurers Bureau [2021], Henry Witcomb QC and Shahram Sharghy successfully represented severely disabled victim of Finsbury Park Mosque terrorist attack whose claim settled for a substantial sum of damages.

The Claimant was one of a number of worshipers who were injured outside Finsbury Park Mosque in June 2017. Although the Claimant already suffered with spinal disabilities which rendered him wheelchair bound, his disabilities were further compounded by the serious orthopaedic and psychiatric injuries he sustained in the attack.  Whilst liability for the attack was accepted by the MIB under Supplementary MIB Agreement in 2017, quantum was disputed in light of the Claimant’s complex medical history. Henry Witcomb QC and Shahram Sharghy advised the Claimant as regards the value of his claim and successfully negotiated a substantial and life-changing settlement which would secure his needs in the future.
