Cycling Injury for Child Compensation Settled Out of Court

July 23rd, 2012 | By injuryclaims

A boy, who suffered head and leg injuries after his bicycle was struck by a vehicle, has had the settlement of his child cycling injury claim approved by the High Court .

Bartosz Zakrzewski (11), sustained the injuries in July 2010 when he was only nine years old. As he rode his three-wheeled tricycle along An Coran Street in Birr, he was struck by a car driven by Caitríona Kelly. Such was the impact of the collision with the car, Bartosz was thrown several metres from his bike and sustained significant head injuries, lacerations all over his body and a broken leg.

Through his mother, Monika, Bartosz made a child cycling injury claim for compensation against Ms Kelly – alleging that she had been negligent in her driving and had acted in breach of her duty of care. Ms Kelly denied the claim and, due to the potential amount of child cycling injury compensation that Bartosz might have received for his injuries, the case was scheduled to be heard before the High Court.

However, shortly before proceedings were about to commence, the High Court judge due to hear the case – Ms Justice Mary Irvine – was advised that the child cycling injury claim had been resolved without admission of liability and a settlement of 100,000 Euros in compensation had been agreed between the two parties. Ms Justice Mary Irvine approved the child cycling accident compensation settlement.
