We acted for a 16 year old girl who was involved in a car accident* where she sustained head injuries.
As a result of the injuries she was unable to complete her education and do her leaving certificate. She attended a Neurosurgeon, a Neuro Clinical Psychologist, an Occupational and Vocational Evaluator and a Psychiatrist for assessment for her case and we succeeded in achieving a settlement some days before the hearing of her High Court case of €352,000. Her award included an Actuarial assessment of her future potential earnings loss.
David Walley + Co Solicitors paid the expenses of all the expert witnesses and put a legal team of barristers in place to provide their expertise and gave the client the opportunity of seeking legal redress in circumstances where she would otherwise have been unable to afford the representation.
*In contentious business a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement.
