Pedestrian hit by lorry on Stranmillis Road, Belfast
Boyd Rice Solicitors were instructed to act on behalf of Mr K in relation to his injury claim. Our client was walking in Stranmillis Village, South Belfast when he was hit on the back by the wing mirror of a passing lorry. He was knocked to the ground and became aware of pain in the mid back area and in the left hand at the base of his thumb. He attended the Ulster Hospital where he was diagnosed with a fracture at the base of his left thumb. He was placed in a cast and required subsequent manipulation of the area around the thumb area.
Court proceedings were issued against the lorry driver. Liability was quickly established in our client’s favour. Following protracted negotiations the case resolved in the sum of £13,000 plus legal costs.
Our client was delighted with the outcome and commented as follows;
“Case handled very smoothly, Neil was a pleasure to deal with. “
