Car accident claims solicitor

Pedestrian accident in Donaghadee claim settles for £60,000

Boyd Rice Solicitors were instructed to act on behalf of Mr K in relation to his injury claim arising from a road traffic accident on Northfield Road, Donaghadee. Our client instructed that on the date of the incident he was struck by a moving car whilst crossing the road. The car hit his left foot, causing him to fall and land on his left elbow and chest.

Our client was initially treated at the scene before being transferred to the Emergency Department of the Ulster Hospital. He suffered a fracture of the ankle and metatarsal (foot) and had a short leg plaster cast applied. Our client was admitted into hospital and some two weeks later underwent surgery of his ankle before being discharged from hospital to a care home.

Our client suffered very serious injuries as a result of the incident and it was therefore important that a clear understanding of the extent of the injury was obtained via various examinations with medical experts. The medical experts reviewed all medical notes records commented upon his long term prognosis. In addition, the surgery had left a considerable scar and a Consultant Plastic Surgeon was instructed to comment on the scarring.

Upon receipt of the medical reports outlining the extent of the ankle injuries and High Court proceedings were issued on behalf of Mr K. Before we could request a date for Hearing the Solicitor acting on behalf of the Defendant’s insurance company invited us to a joint consultation as a result of which the case settled in the sum of £60,000.00 plus costs.

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


“My case ran very smoothly and my Solicitor, Neil McGranaghan was very helpful. He kept me informed throughout the process. I have used Boyd Rice Solicitors in the past and would have no hesitation in recommending their services to others.”
