Teen now needs hand held when crossing road after accident

A JUDGE has rejected an offer for a personal injury claim worth almost €9,000 after hearing that a teenage girl has to hold someone’s hand while crossing the road following a traffic collision in Limerick.

At a Limerick Civil Court sitting at Merchant’s Quay, Judge Gerald Keys, presiding, heard that a girl and her mother were struck by a car while crossing a road in Dooradoyle on March 9, 2017.

The plaintiff, who cannot be named because she is a minor, was represented by Michael Purtill BL, who stated that an offer of €8,787 was too low.

The court heard that the plaintiff suffered injuries to her neck, her right and left shoulders and elbows, and her hip.
