There was a lady at the front of the line of traffic who turned suddenly and he collided with her vehicle. He was thrown off the bicycle and landed on his left shoulder. He had been taken to Tralee General Hospital where he was x-rayed and a fracture was diagnosed. He was off work for six weeks.

1st July 2015
Our Client had been up in the Wicklow mountains for the day and travelled back home along the N11. He came to a junction where the traffic lights were amber, so he slowed down and stopped. All of a sudden a car hit him from behind, and another car ran into the back of that car. His son who is 12 was a front seat passenger. He checked to see if he was ok and then got out of the car, the other Drivers got out as well. Straight away our Client realised he had a pain in his neck and he asked the Driver of the car behind if he was ok. They were all in shock. The driver behind our Client rang the Guards, in the meantime a Garda car from Blackrock Station arrived on the scene and they asked if anyone needed to go to Hospital. Then they got everyone to exchange details. They moved everyone off the road to the side and everyone waited for about twenty minutes as the other cars had to be towed away. The Gardai told our client to go to his local Station and bring his Insurance and details of his NCT. He then drove home. Our Client received €10,300 for this accident resulting in injuries to his neck and constant headaches.
