Brigid negotiates six-figure settlement for client who suffered life-changing injuries following road traffic accident


Posted in News on Wednesday, November 27th, 2019

Brigid O’Donnell and the Litigation Team recently represented a client who required significant orthopaedic surgery following a road traffic accident. While her fractures healed well, she continued to experience constant pain and restricted mobility. Her restricted mobility arose due to a combination of the Plaintiff’s loss of confidence and Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome. Her medical practitioners attributed both factors as arising as a direct result of the accident. However, despite the medical evidence to hand, the insurance company disputed the extent of the Plaintiff’s ongoing difficulties. Their Solicitors initially refused to accept that she ought to be entitled to compensation for house adaptations and mobility aids, and for future loss of earnings whereby she had hoped to extend her contract of employment beyond the usual age for retirement.   Following protracted negotiations, the case ultimately settled for a six-figure sum which Brigid was happy to recommend to our client. The settlement will ensure that she is reimbursed for hefty medical expenses and is facilitated in rendering her property more readily accessible.
