Boyd Rice Solicitors were instructed to act on behalf of Mr C in relation to his personal injury claim. Our client instructed that he was the driver in a vehicle which was travelling along the main road in Belfast when a tractor pulled out in front of him resulting in a head on collision. The impact to our client’s vehicle was so severe that the airbags deployed.
Our client’s left knee struck the console of his car. Upon exiting his vehicle he quickly realised that he was unable to move his knee. He was brought to hospital in an ambulance where an x-ray confirmed that he had sustained a fractured left patella. This would require a lengthy period of rehabilitation to include physiotherapy.
Court proceedings were issued and liability was established against the other driver. Our client attended medical appointments with leading Consultants and an MRI scan was arranged. This would enable the medical expert to get a complete picture of the extent of the damage and provide a long-term prognosis for recovery. Negotiations took place in the High Court by way of a joint consultation and the case settled in the sum of £42,500 plus costs.
Following the successful conclusion of his claim our client commented as follows;
“Boyd Rice solicitors made a long and difficult process as stress-free as possible.”
