In April 2009, the team represented a man who suffered a whiplash injury following a road traffic accident*. The Judge accepted the Plaintiff's evidence and found him to be an honest hardworking man who was keen to get back to work as soon as possible after the accident which occurred in October 2004.
The accident, for which liability was admitted, caused the Plaintiff to suffer extensive injuries which kept him out of work for a significant period of time.
The Judge assessed damages for pain and suffering to date at €40,000.00 and pain and suffering into the future at €30,000.00. Loss of past earnings and potential future earnings, together with medical expenses, accounted for the balance of the award made.
Liability was admitted pre-trial. This case was before the court for an assessment of damages only.
