Widow of Postman settles case for €250K over his death

The widow of a 39-year-old postman who died after being knocked off his bicycle while on his post round has settled a High Court action over his death for €250,000.

The court heard that the car driver had just got a mere glance of postman, before he emerged out of a road and into the driver’s path. 

The postman, a father of twins, was delivering post at the time of the accident.

It was claimed there was an alleged failure to provide a safe system of work and an alleged failure to ensure the postman would be safe while carrying out his work delivering post.

It was further claimed there was an alleged failure to ensure that the postman wore a helmet while cycling his bicycle in the course of his job.

The court was made aware that another person who witnessed the entire accident in a statement said there was nothing the driver could have done.

The Postman was not wearing a bicycle helmet when he was struck by the car; suffered brain injuries and died. 

Approving the settlement of €250,000 the High Court judge offered his sympathy to the family of the deceased.
