Healy O’Connor recently acted for an injured claimant who suffered a severe personal injury to her knee in a pile up on a motor way.
Unfortunately, the claimant was the first car in the pile up and suffered the brunt of the initial collision and subsequent collisions from the cars behind resulting in this very serious personal injury.
The personal injury was severe. The damage to her knee was very serious and resulted in a serious loss of mobility.
A number of surgeries were required to repair damage to the knee and as a result of the accident a personal injury action was taken in the High Court.
After numerous surgeries and medical investigations the matter was listed for hearing in the High Court. In advance of the matter being heard the case settled for a significant six figure sum. The figure agreed reflected the complicated nature of the personal injury.
