The client, a young Lithuanian woman, was a passenger in her brother’s car in Lucan when the car was rear ended in early Spring approximately 5 years ago.
The client went to her GP and was referred to a consultant orthopaedic surgeon. The client had extensive injuries to her neck and back. The client underwent intensive medical treatment at a spa clinic in Lithuania.
The matter was assessed by the injuries board at €22,000. This offer was rejected and court proceedings were issued. Three years later after many medical assessments and court work the case was settled two weeks prior to the court hearing date for €55,000. The plaintiff was very happy with the settlement.
Her brother and her friend were also in the car. The brother recovered from his neck injuries within a couple of months and accepted €15,000. The friend recovered from his injuries within eight weeks and obtained €7,500.
The above story is true. However, the names of the people involved and the locations have been changed to protect their privacy.
