Diane's trip claim settles for £45,000 (Antrim)

Diane was on her way to a GP appointment when her foot caught on a raised paving stone which caused her to fall. As a result of the trip, she fractured her elbow and wrist. The injuries required surgeries. She instructed a firm of solicitors to pursue a claim on her behalf. However, she was not satisfied with the representation and decided to instruct Paschal O’Hare Solicitors instead.

Paschal O'Hare Solicitors initiated the claim

We initiated the claim against the Northern Health and Social Care Trust who were the owners of the area where Diane fell. We provided them with photos of the raised paving stone and the Trust indicated willingness to settle the case. We had our client examined by a consultant orthopaedic surgeon who confirmed the injuries and provided us with a medical report. The report indicated that Diane experienced significant restrictions in the months following her accident. Subsequently, we commissioned a report from an occupational therapist to calculate the cost of care which Diane received from the date of her accident and ongoing.

Both reports were served on the defendant and we entered negotiations. We settled the case in the sum of £45,000.
