Bicycle Accident case settles for €110,000
Rogers Personal Injury Solicitors have recently secured a settlement for a client in the sum of €110,000.00.
The client was cycling her bicycle safely and legally along the side of a main road, when the driver of a car spun off the road and collided with our client. Our client suffered severe injuries to her jaw and face.
We carried out a home visit with the client and started the case. Liability was denied by the third party insurers, therefore Court proceedings were issued in the High Court. The case was listed for a Trial in July, however settlement talks were recently held and a settlement figure was agreed in the sum of €110,000.00. The client was delighted with the figure and she was also happy that she did not have to go to Court.
The case highlights the dangers that cyclists in Ireland (and especially in large cities such as Dublin, Galway, Cork and Limerick) face on a daily basis. If you come off a bike you have no airbags, it is just you and the tarmac.
This particular client was lucky in that her injuries could have been a lot worse. She was extremely shaken up after this accident and there is a chance that she will never use a bicycle again.
She was delighted with the level of service that she received from Rogers Solicitors. From the initial home visit right through to settlement we explained the process clearly and put her at ease throughout the claims process.
