Laura was involved in a car accident near the Fortwilliam Roundabout in Belfast. She was waiting to turn left when a lorry collided with the back of her vehicle. The driver on the scene provided her with a false insurance document. While the police were contacted, the lorry driver left the scene before they could arrive. It subsequently came to light that the registration plates on the lorry were false. Additionally, the lorry driver was in fact one of the drivers who is now in prison for his involvement in human trafficking in Grays, Essex in 2019.
As a result of her accident, Laura attended the hospital and suffered pain in her neck, back and knee.
Laura contacted Paschal O’Hare Personal Injury Solicitors
Laura originally instructed another solicitor who logged the claim with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) who deal with claims against uninsured and untraced drivers. Some medical evidence was obtained including reports from a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and an MRI report and the MIB made an offer of £4,500 in the case.
Laura was unhappy with the way in which the claim was being dealt with by the other solicitor and she instructed Seymour at Paschal O’Hare Solicitors to take over her case. He negotiated with the MIB and managed to get the offer increased to £30,000 which Laura was happy with.
