Legal proceedings should be issued
Liability was quickly admitted by the defendant’s insurance company. A medical report was obtained by Paschal O’Hare Solicitors from a consultant orthopaedic surgeon who believed our client would suffer from her injuries for a period of 18 months. The firm entered negotiations with the defendant’s insurer who offered £3500 in compensation. This was immediately rejected. A further offer of £4000 was made which again was rejected. We advised our client that legal proceedings should be issued to obtain a proper and fair level of compensation. We issued the proceedings and were met with an offer of £5000 in compensation. This was accepted by our client and the case settled for that amount plus costs.
