David's car accident claim settles for £1,500 (Belfast)
David was sitting stationary in his car when another driver crashed into his rear. As a result of the collision, he was left with injuries to his back and neck that were consistent with whiplash. David attended his GP for this and soon after decided to contact our office.
David instructed Paschal O’Hare Solicitors
We sent a letter of claim to the other driver’s insurer who quickly admitted liability. However, they disputed that David suffered any real injuries due to the minor impact of the crash. We had David examined by a consultant orthopaedic surgeon who provided a medical report. It was of the view that the impact was at the lower end of the scale in perms of magnitude and whiplash symptoms would settle between 4 and 6 months.
With the benefit of a medical report, we then entered negotiations with the insurer and the case settled in the sum of £1,500.
