£350,000 for family of deceased Corporal in Snatch Landrover case

We represented the widow and children of a Corporal who was killed by an improvised explosive device (IED) whilst serving in Iraq. He was in a Snatch Landrover which provided inadequate protection against the IED. The Chilcot report was highly critical of the use of these vehicles. We overcame combat immunity issues to secure this settlement for our clients.
