Julie’s passenger accident claim settles for £22,000 (Belfast)

Julie was a passenger in a vehicle that was stationary on Falls Road in Belfast when it was rear-ended by another car. Following the accident, she sought medical attention at the Royal Victoria Hospital and underwent physiotherapy treatment.

Julie reached out to our expert passenger accident solicitors

Seeking expertise in car accident claims, Julie turned to Paschal O’Hare Solicitors for assistance. We immediately initiated a claim against the insurers, who, after a period of investigation, acknowledged their liability for the accident.

Our solicitor Seymour Major arranged for Julie to be evaluated by an Orthopaedic Consultant, who identified soft tissue injuries to her right arm—aggravated by a pre-existing condition—and to her back. The consultant predicted a recovery period of 12-18 months for her back pain and suggested possible long-term stiffness in her arm.

Initially, the insurers offered £4,800 in compensation, a figure which we rejected. Leveraging our negotiation skills and in-depth understanding of personal injury claims, we secured a substantially improved settlement of £22,000, to Julie’s satisfaction.

Car accidents, particularly those involving rear-end collisions, can lead to significant injuries and recovery challenges.
