Martin was cycling through a roundabout when he was struck by a car which knocked him from his bike and to the ground. The sudden impact left the cyclist with bruises, cuts and an arm injury that resulted in a cast. The driver of the car ignored Martin and fled the scene of the accident. Fortunately, a number of witnesses made note of the car's registration number.
After the accident, Martin experienced symptoms of whiplash
Martin, who was unable to work for a period after the accident, contacted Paschal O'Hare Solicitors to pursue a claim for compensation. We tracked down the careless driver and served medical reports that we obtained which outlined our new client's injuries. The driver's insurers were keen to settle the matter outside of court and we entered negotiations. Our efforts secured Martin a sum of £9,000 plus a repayment of sick pay to his employer.
