He suffered soft tissue injuries to his neck and left shoulder which caused him considerable pain.
Stuart reached out to our car accident solicitors
Stuart wanted to learn about his options and reached out to Paschal O’Hare to find out what he could do. Our solicitor Seymour Major advised him that he could claim for his injuries and told him we could help.
A letter of claim was sent to the Defendant insurers and liability was admitted. Our solicitors sent Stuart to be examined by a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who provided a prognosis period of 18 months for recovery. Stuart was off work for a period of time after the accident and had a loss of earnings in the sum of £5,421. His employer also wished to recover £8,062 in relation to payments they had made for sick pay.
An initial offer of £7,500 was made for the injuries. Our solicitors then negotiated a final settlement figure of £22,490 to include the loss of earnings and recoupment to the employer.
