Case Study Fourteen: Paul Keown – Woman receives six figure compensation after collision with a car

21st January 2016 by

Healys Solicitors’ specialised Personal Injury Team has helped a woman receive compensation after she suffered a head injury from being stuck by a car.

In November 2013 our client was walking along a country lane when she was suddenly struck by a car. She was taking to the local hospital where she was treated for injuries to her leg and head.

The outcome of the case

She decided to contact Healys Solicitors’ specialist Personal Injury Team and one of our solicitors, Paul Keown, was able to deal with her claim. Paul quickly resolved the issue of whose fault the accident was but was concerned when our client was complaining of severe headaches. Paul, who is head injury specialist, arranged for our client to see a consultant where she was later diagnosed with a moderate head injury.

The driver of the vehicle refused to accept the findings of the consultant and decided to take the matter to Court. Paul was able to successfully argue that our client had suffered the injury at the time of the accident and case was settled. Our client received a significant six figure number that will go towards her ongoing rehabilitation from her injuries.

Paul Keown, Specialist Personal Injury Solicitor commented: “Often head injuries like this can get missed or manifest after the initial injury. We were fortunate we were able to pick this up and get our client the right amount compensation she deserved.”
