Road traffic accident case study
William was driving through Dungannon when he came to a junction. He slowed to a halt so that he could make a turn when another driver crashed into his rear. As a consequence of the car crash, William suffered from soft tissue injuries to his upper back which were consistent with whiplash. He also suffered psychological injuries in the form of anxiety and stress.
Following the road traffic accident, William was advised that McCartan Turkington Breen Solicitors specialise in personal injury claims from road traffic collisions. He contacted us and had the benefit of a free, no commitment consultation with Harry McAleese. William instructed Harry with his case.

Harry obtained medical reports in relation to the physical and psychological injuries sustained. He issued a letter of claim on the insurer of the other driver who conceded liability early. However, they disputed the injuries reportedly sustained by our client. Harry then issued Court proceedings. The insurer invited us to settlement negotiations and made a settlement offer. Harry, an expert in road traffic accident claims, deemed the offer to be too low and advised William against accepting it. William agreed and rejected the offer. As the trial date approached, the insurer indicated that they wanted to make an increased settlement offer of £6,500. William accepted this on Harry’s advice and the matter settled without ever proceeding to Court.
