Passenger in vehicle involved in a RTC in Holywood, Co Down settles claim for £12,890

Boyd Rice Solicitors were instructed to act on behalf of Ms H in relation to her injury claim arising from a road traffic accident. Our client instructed that on the date of the incident she was the front seat passenger in a car which was moving at a traffic light-controlled junction when it was struck with considerable force on the front driver’s side by a minibus. Airbags where activated.

Our client was extremely shaken and aware initially of chest and abdominal pain. She was treated at the scene by paramedics before being transferred to the Emergency Department of the Ulster Hospital. She suffered injuries to her chest, abdominal wall and her back. Our client was detained in hospital for several days. Following the accident our client developed psychiatric injuries and was very nervous when travelling in the car.

Court proceedings were issued and liability was established against the driver of the minibus. The case settled without the need to go to Court in Ms H’s favour in the sum of £12,890.00 plus costs.

Following the successful conclusion of her claim our client commented as follows;

“Very happy with the settlement which was achieved much quicker than I expected. I am happy that I did not have to go to Court. My Solicitor Neil McGranaghan was great at answering any questions that I had during the case.”
