Patricia’s tripping accident settles for £60,000 (Belfast)
Patricia was attending a Maritime Festival at the Belfast Harbour with family. As Patricia was intending to board a ship for a tour, she tripped over a speed bump / ramp in the road, causing her to fall and sustain a broken hip.
Patricia contacted Paschal O’Hare Personal Injury Solicitors
Once Patricia consulted with one of our solicitors, we informed the Festival owners that we intended to pursue a claim for personal injury. On investigation, it transpired that the Speed Ramp was not highlighted correctly, as the high-visibility paint and markings had faded and disappeared. After discussions, liability was accepted and Patricia was sent to a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, and a Consultant Plastic Surgeon, to have her physical injuries assessed, as well as her surgical scarring.
After medical evidence was served, negotiations commenced, and Patricia’s case settled for £60,000.00.
