Paul's Cycling Accident Settles for £5,750 (Carrickfergus)

Paul's Cycling Accident Settles for £5,750 (Carrickfergus)

Paul was cycling to work in Carrickfergus at around 6am when a car pulled out from a side road and crashed into him. The collision threw him from his bicycle and knocked him unconscious. As a result of the accident, Paul suffered amnesia for over an hour. The memory problems were also accompanied with a concussion, disorientation, an injured ankle, an injured hand and a particularly nasty road burn on the leg.

Thankfully, Paul was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, however the force of impact was still enough to cause the helmet to split in two. Despite the seriousness of the injuries, Paul was quite lucky and had a relatively quick recovery time with no long term damage. However, he was still unable to work for a 3 week period and suffered the loss of £750 in wages.

Paul contacted Paschal O'Hare Solicitors 

We took on the case and contacted the insurance provider of the driver behind the wheel of the car involved. Liability was quickly admitted and we got to work investigating how much Paul would be owed in compensation. We had him examined by a consultant orthopaedic surgeon and a consultant neurosurgeon who both provided medical reports to help us assess the nature of the injuries.

We entered negotiations with the insurance provider and settled Paul’s case for £5,750.
