Settlement for client involved in road traffic accident

McGrath McGrane received instructions from a client who was involved in a road traffic accident

As a result of a car crash when the client’s vehicle was rear ended, the client suffered personal injuries. McGrath McGrane made an application to the Injuries Board on behalf of the client. The respondent’s insurance company agreed to the claim being assessed by the Injuries Board. However, the Injuries Board declined to proceed with their assessment because of the complexity of the client’s claim for special damages. Accordingly, the Injuries Board issued an authorisation allowing the client to institute a compensation claim for personal injuries before the Court.

McGrath McGrane issued proceedings on behalf of the client in the Circuit Court. Before the case was listed for hearing, the defendant’s solicitors requested a settlement meeting at the Four Courts, Dublin 7. We met with the defendant’s solicitor and following protracted settlement negotiations settled our client’s claim for in excess of €32,000.00 plus legal costs.
