Gaffney Halligan & Co. were delighted to act for a client in relation to a personal injuries action arising out of a road traffic accident that occurred in Dublin. Liability was disputed and the case ran to a full Hearing in Dublin Circuit Court in November 2022. Evidence was given by both parties and the engineer engaged on behalf of our client. An important feature of the case was the fact that our client took photos of the scene of the accident at the time which proved very persuasive to the Judge, who found in favour of our client 100%. The evidence differed as to the position of the two vehicles on the road when the impact occurred. The Judge awarded our client a significant sum for damages.
The client was delighted with the outcome particularly when her description of what happened was not accepted by the Defendant and the Judge vindicated her position fully.
The litigation department of Gaffney Halligan & Co. has been very busy since the courts re-opened at the beginning of October with a significant number of settlements achieved for clients.
