A woman was involved in a road traffic accident when a car turned across her and she went over the bonnet of the car. She was taken by ambulance to the hospital. The client sustained a fracture to a bone at the base of her spine.

The matter was assessed by the Injuries Board and she was awarded €22,000. This was rejected. It was felt that her injuries were worth more.

Court proceedings were started. The defendant’s solicitors contacted this office and pointed to the fact that on her Facebook page the client had a picture of herself on a bicycle with a medal around her neck having taken part in the Great Dublin Cycle. The insurance company then reduced its offer to €15,000. After negotiation the matter was settled for €22,000. The client was happy in the circumstances to take the offer but was aware that the Facebook photo did not help her claim.
