Stephen's Cycling Accident Settles for £50k (Armagh)

Stephen was cycling home from work in Armagh wearing his high-visibility work vest when a stationary car suddenly and unexpectedly pulled out across his path. The violent collision knocked Stephen from his bike and left him with significant injuries.  

Police and paramedics attended the scene

Stephen was taken to hospital by ambulance where he underwent an x-ray which revealed a fracture of his tibia and fibula, both bones in the lower leg. He also had a CT scan of his head and neck which lead to the diagnosis of a fractured eye socket. As a result he was put in a long leg back slab. Days later he had a frame inserted during a surgery to stabilise the fracture. During this time, doctors discovered that Stephen had also developed a collapsed lung which was treated. Shortly after, he underwent a second surgery to insert a nail that would hold his tibia in place.

Stephen could no longer attend work

Stephen was unable to work for a number of months following the accident which was his primary motivation for wishing to claim. Upon diligently researching capable law firms in Northern Ireland he made contact with us and became our newest client.

We sent a letter of claim to the insurance provider of the careless driver that caused the accident and also enquired further with the PSNI who indicated that no criminal prosecution was anticipated against the driver. The insurer informed us that they were investigating the matter which lead to a delay in the admission of liability. As a consequence, we issued High Court legal proceedings on behalf of Stephen which lead the insurer to appoint a firm of solicitors to represent their customer.

Almost immediately after, the defending party indicated a willingness to discuss settlement of the case. A joint consultation at the High Court took place and as a result we secured Stephen £50,000.
