Compensation Awarded for a Road Accident at Traffic Lights

Posted: August 1st, 2010

A 25-year-old woman has been awarded 4.35 million euro in compensation for a road accident at traffic lights after her car collided with another that had driven through a red light.

The victim suffered severe lower back injuries that make walking anything other than a short distance painful. Awarding the compensation in the High Court Mr Justice John Quirke criticised the fact that injury compensation law in Ireland only allowed lump sum payments rather than annual payments, the judge described it as a ‘lottery situation’.
