Ryan has cerebral palsy as a result of a birth complication 21 years ago.
His family were originally advised that they could not win a claim but they sought a second opinion from Brain Injury Group solicitor Helen Niebuhr, of Darbys.
Helen was able to use of her years of experience in brain injury cases to win £6.6million on their behalf.
Justine, Ryan’s mother, said: “Before coming to Helen Niebuhr at Darbys we had been advised by other solicitors that Ryan would not win a claim (but) Helen was obviously a specialist at brain injury and that made a difference. She carried on until the hospital admitted liability and paid Ryan enough compensation to cover all of his needs.
It has completely changed our lives and we know now that Ryan is secure and will be well cared for for the rest of his life. If we hadn’t known of Helen, we would still be struggling and worried about the future”.
