In the aftermath of the accident, the court was told the child suffered a cut lip and was very anxious and was crying.The child’s parents also had to drive a different route to their montessori school as the child became very anxious going past the scene of the accident.Judge John O’Hagan said he agreed that the offer of approximately €8,000 was not enough and said he was recommending something in the order of €10,000 of the child and said he was not approving of the offer.JUDGE RECOMMENDS REFUSAL OF €8K TO CHILD WHO CANNOT PASS PLACE OF ACCIDENT was last modified: April 29th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:awardcrashdonegalJUDGElast_img
