A man has been awarded €8,000.00 in damages by the High Court as a result of an injury claim. The man suffered personal injuries* after a car he was a passenger in being driven by his brother, crashed while trying to avoid Gardai.
The defendant insurers admitted liability however they claimed the man had contributed to his own injuries by getting into a car driven by his brother who he know had been drinking alcohol.
In his ruling, Mr. Justice Kearns said he was satisfied that man was entitled to €12,000 damages but he would reduce that to €8,000 as he was satisfied he had contributed to his injuries by taking a lift after meeting his brother.
