Widow receives €300,000 after two drivers caused her husbands wrongful death

High Court proceedings were brought by the widow of a 40-year-old man, who was walking along the roadway at night; when he was struck by two separate cars. He later died as a result of his injuries.

The father of one was struck by one car as he walked along a country road at night and was then subsequently hit by another car as he lay injured on the road,

It was claimed that both drivers had caused their vehicles to be involved in a collision with the deceased.

It was further claimed that the two drivers failed to keep a proper look out and that they allegedly drove without due care and attention.

The Court was advised that the first driver allegedly drove away from the scene of the accident leaving the man seriously injured. He passed away a short time later in hospital

High Court said it was a "very tragic and sad case" and approved a settlement in the sum of €300,000,

The presiding Judge said that he had no hesitation in approving the settlement and passed on his condolences to the family of the deceased.
