A child is to receive €100,000 in compensation after the settlement of his claim for head and leag injuries he sustained when he was knocked off his tricycle after a car crash.
Bartosz Zakrzewski from Birr, County Offaly was cycling along An Coran Street in Birr when he was hit with a car driven by Caitríona Kelly. He was thrown from his bike and landed several meters away. He suffered injuries to his head, body and a broken leg.
Claiming through his mother Monika the compensation claim was due to be heard in the High Court as Ms.Kelly denied that she had been negligent. However Ms Justice Mary Irvine heard that the claim had been settled shortly before proceedings were due to begin and approved the compensation settlement.
