Jacob was involved in a scooter accident in Dundonald. He was on his scooter when suddenly and without warning a vehicle pulled out in front of him causing him to swerve and be thrown onto the ground. Jacob’s scooter ended up landing on top of him.
He attended the Royal Victoria Hospital as a result of the multiple injuries sustained in the accident.
Jacob Reached Out To Our Injury Solicitors
Jacob contacted Paschal O’Hare Personal Injury Solicitors and consulted with one of our solicitors.
We immediately conducted a search of the third party’s vehicle registration plate number in order to establish the identity of their motor insurer. Our solicitors informed the third party’s insurer of our intention to claim for personal injury, loss and suffering. We were able to secure an admission of liability.
We had Jacob examined by a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and a Consultant Psychiatrist. Our solicitors gathered Jacob’s Hospital records along with his GP notes and records and provided these to the Consultants who produced a report detailing the nature and extent of Jacob’s injuries.
Jacob was required to take 20 days off work as a result of the accident. We gathered the required information to allow us to include his loss of earnings in his claim.
After medical evidence was served, we entered into negotiations with the third party insurer.
An initial offer of £13,000 was made. Our solicitors managed to negotiate a final settlement of £15,000 which Jacob was happy with.
