Claim relating to damage to hedge following road traffic accident settles for £420

Neil McGranaghan

Boyd Rice Solicitors were instructed to act on behalf of Mrs C in respect of her claim relating to damage to her garden hedge following an accident involving two cars in Gilnahirk, Belfast. One of the cars, who happened to be the at fault party’s vehicle, ended up in our client’s garden hedge causing considerable damage. Boyd Rice Solicitors also act on behalf of the driver of the other vehicle (non fault party) who was injured in the accident.

Our initial advice to our client was to get a quote for remedial work to be carried out to the hedge in order to return it to the same condition as it was before the accident occurred. Our client obtained a very reasonable quote from Woodcroft Landscapes in Belfast and sent their invoice to us. The at fault driver’s insurer accepted liability at an early stage and engaged fully with Neil McGranaghan when presented with the invoice. They raised a cheque for the cost of remedial work to the hedge and also paid our client’s legal costs.

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

“My claim was handled with minimum fuss, and I was reimbursed quickly. The replacement hedge is already growing in.”
