Michelle was a passenger in a vehicle driving down Falls Road in Belfast when a car driven by the third party struck her vehicle. She was holding a roof handle adjacent to her seat at the time and suffered soft tissue injuries to her right arm and back.
Michelle reached out to our passenger accident solicitors
Michelle contacted Paschal O’Hare Solicitors and discussed the circumstances of the accident with our team during her free consultation. We quickly set up a file and sent a letter of claim to the third-party insurers, who eventually admitted liability.
Michelle reported suffering from soft tissue injuries. We arranged for her to be examined by a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon. The Consultant advised that the majority of symptoms should settle within 18 months, but she should be left with some permanent long-term stiffness in her arm.
We served the medical evidence on the insurers and initially received an offer of £4,800, which we rejected. Through negotiations, we were able to secure a settlement figure of £22,000, with which Michelle was very happy.
