Road Traffic Accident in Lisburn, Northern Ireland settles for £5,800

Neil McGranaghan

Boyd Rice Solicitors were instructed to act on behalf of Ms J in relation to her personal injury claim. Our client instructed that she was the driver of a moving vehicle which was hit on the passenger side by another car which was performing a U-turn.

The impact pushed our client’s vehicle into a wall. Our client developed pain in her right wrist immediately after the incident. Details of the subject accident were locally resolved before an ambulance arrived. She was initially treated at the scene for chest pains before being transferred to the Royal Victoria Hospital.

She was x-rayed at hospital where a hairline crack in the right distal radius was diagnosed.

We were further instructed by our client’s insurance company to recover the pre-accident value (PAV) of her vehicle and were also instructed by our client to recover her insurance excess which had been deducted by her insurance company from the PAV of the vehicle.

Court proceedings were issued against the at fault driver. Approximately one week before the scheduled Court Hearing date, the case resolved in Ms J favour in the sum of £5,800 plus costs.

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

“Boyd Rice Solicitors put me at ease from the very beginning. Everything was explained to me and I fully understood the process. I was kept informed throughout my case and was happy that the case settled outside of Court.”
