Patrick was driving his car in Newcastle. A car travelling in the opposite direction suddenly veered into his path causing a violent collision. He recalls been suddenly thrown about by the force of the impact and hitting the top of his head.
Following the collision, Patrick recalls feeling pain at the top of his head where there was a cut to his scalp. He suffered soft tissue injuries to his neck and shoulder. He attended Daisy Hill Hospital Newry for treatment. He was subsequently referred for physiotherapy and was off work for a period of time.
Patrick contacted Emmet J Kelly & Company solicitors – specialists in Road Traffic Accidents Newcastle – for advice.
We sent a letter of claim to the other driver’s insurer and liability for the accident was subsequently admitted. We had Patrick examined by a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who confirmed in the medical report that Patrick had suffered soft tissue injuries. We also obtained a medical report from a Consultant Plastic Surgeon who confirmed a presence of a small scar on his forehead. We entered into negotiations with the third party insurance company and a settlement in the sum of £12,500 was agreed.
