Luas passenger awarded €80,000 over tram crash with taxi

A passenger who was injured when a taxi collided with a Luas tram in which she was travelling has been awarded €80,000 by the High Court.

The Plaintiff had sued the driver of the taxi who she claimed ran a red light and caused the accident on the Luas tram in which she was travelling. 

When the accident occurred the Plaintiff was sitting at the back of the tram when she hit a support bar and suffered injuries to her neck and shoulder.

The Court indicated that the physical injuries were soft tissue in nature, but found, based on medical evidence, that she will be left with some ongoing symptoms into the future and indefinitely. 

It was alleged that as a result of the accident that the Plaintiff developed a travel anxiety and a fear of travelling.

Accordingly, the Judge made an award of €80,000 in damages and awarded costs to Plaintiff.
