Boyd Rice Solicitors were instructed to act on behalf of Mrs O in relation to her claim for loss and damage arising from a road traffic accident in Newtownards.
Our client instructed that her vehicle was parked on East Street when another vehicle collided with it and drove on. Thankfully our client witnessed the collision and recorded the registration of the other vehicle at the scene. She discussed the accident with an independent witness who was also present at the time and rang us for advice. Our client then reported the accident to PSNI.
Surprisingly liability was denied by the other driver’s insurance company. The other driver alleged that she was not involved in any accident whatsoever! Our client obtained an estimate for repairs to her vehicle and we were instructed to issue Court proceedings on her behalf so that she could arrange for repairs to her vehicle without going through her insurance company. The input of the independent witness proved invaluable. They confirmed that they had witnessed the other vehicle colliding with our client’s vehicle and the case resolved in our client’s favour. Importantly, her insurance was not affected and she was able to get her vehicle repaired at long last!
Following the successful conclusion of her claim our client commented as follows;
“I instructed Boyd Rice Solicitors to act on my behalf in relation to a hit and run accident in which my car was damaged. My case was dealt with quickly and I was kept up to date at every stage. The third party denied liability so unfortunately Court proceedings had to be issued. My Solicitor, Neil McGranaghan, explained what to expect at Court, made me feel at ease and the case was resolved in my favour. Thankfully my own insurance wasn’t affected and I received a cheque to enable repairs to take place. My car has now been repaired and is back on the road. I will definitely use Boyd Rice Solicitors again and would recommend them to anyone in similar situations. ”
