Steve’s Car Accident Settles for £13,000 (Belfast)

Steve was involved in a car accident on Saintfield Road in Belfast. He was driving his vehicle in the outside lane when suddenly, and without warning, another vehicle traveling in the inside lane collided with Steve’s vehicle.

Steve reached out to our car accident solicitors

Steve contacted Paschal O’Hare, on a recommendation from a friend.  We quickly established that we could assist in bringing a claim for compensation arising out of the incident.

We immediately conducted a search of the third party’s vehicle registration in order to establish the identity of their motor insurer. A letter of claim was directed to them setting out our client’s allegations. Liability was denied by the third party insurer.

We arranged for Steve to be examined by a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon. We also gathered a report from  a Consultant Psychiatrist. Steve was suffering low back pain as a  result of the accident. The medical report documented the reduction of Steve’s recreational activities as a result of his injury, the Consultant was of the view that this would continue for some 12 – 18 months. Steve was also diagnosed as suffering from an adjustment disorder for 12 months.

We initiated court proceedings against the third party. A denial of liability was maintained by the third party until the day of the hearing . Negotiations at court, on the morning of the hearing, secured an award of £13,000 which Steve was pleased with.
