first_imgA young brother and sister have been awarded personal damages at Letterkenny Circuit Court after their family car was in collision with a tractor.The accident happened when a tractor emerged from a side-road and went over the bonnet of the car with the children in it.The court heard that the first child, who was aged 7 at the time but is now 10, sustained cuts and soft tissue to the right hand. An offer of €12,500 was offered by the insurance company and this was accepted by the child’s mother.The second child, was 5 at the time but is now 8, suffered more long term as a result of the accident.The court heard the child was cut to the neck but had more psychological issues.The child is still nervous traveling and wets the bed occasionally.The offer to the child was €15,000 which Judge John O’Hagan said was not an insubstantial amount of money.He ordered that €200 be released to each child to get them something small at present and the rest of the money be lodged into a trust fund until they are older.CHILDREN AWARDED DAMAGES AFTER THEIR CAR STRUCK BY TRACTOR was last modified: May 1st, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:awardDamagesdonegaltractorlast_img
