Substantial Settlement for Spinal Injury Victim

Ronan Hynes, Partner in the Serious and Catastrophic Injury Team at MHP Sellors LLP has represented an individual in the High Court and secured a very substantial out of Court settlement for catastrophic spinal injuries. The settlement was brokered after extensive discussions in the High Court in Dublin and liability was split on a percentage basis between the parties.

Commenting upon the settlement, Ronan Hynes said that:

“Our client suffered a devastating and life changing tetraplegic spinal cord injury. I am very pleased with this out of Court settlement which represents a proportionate value of the overall value of the case. The settlement will enable our client to have ongoing physiotherapy and hydrotherapy treatment into the future. In addition, the settlement will enable significant home modifications to be carried out to ensure all individual needs, care and supports are fully catered for into the future.”

The spinal injury victim commented after the out of Court settlement as follows:

“Ronan and MHP Sellors helped and guided us through every step of a difficult process after a catastrophic spinal injury to a positive outcome and we are very grateful for the good advice and support during a very difficult time. We, as a family, can now move on with our lives.”
