- JDF (a child) v Hampshire County Council – In early 2017 Peregrine secured record breaking compensation for a young girl who sustained a severe traumatic brain injury in 2012. The Claimant received a lump sum of over £9.1m together with annual payments for life for her care and case management (periodical payments) totalling the equivalent sum of £28m capitalised to assist her in securing the necessary care, case management, therapy, professional deputyship and accommodation needs to ensure her quality of life. Interim payments of £1.3m were obtained to cover her considerable care and therapy needs throughout the running of the claim, as well as purchase a suitable property for her.
- NIH ( a protected party) v Chief Constable of Surrey – In 2016 he helped a young woman who had sustained a profound brain injury achieve a settlement of £2.5m plus annual payments for life for care and case management (capitalised equivalent sum of over £7.5m).
In recent years, he has settled several multimillion pound brain and spinal injury cases as well as an upper limb amputee claim.
