Man in Ireland awarded £6m in compensation after car accident

Posted in: Car Accidents Head and Brain Injuries Road Traffic Accidents 

A man in Northern Ireland is due to receive around £6million in compensation after he suffered life-changing injuries in a car accident. The 25-year-old – who cannot be named for legal reasons – sustained brain injuries and numerous broken bones in the accident. He had only been a passenger in the car when it swerved into a field in 2007.

The driver of the car was jailed following the accident for causing injury through dangerous driving. The case has been noted as one of the largest cases of its kind, with damages only agreed upon at the High Court in Belfast at the end of last month.


Part of the compensation is made up of £1.44m in general damages, loss of earnings and the cost of care for the injured man to date. A periodical payment for future treatments etc. will also be arranged. Depending on how long the man lives; the overall sum could be between £4-6million.

The injured man was previously a trainee lead fitter, but because of the accident, it is highly unlikely that he will ever be able to return to his work. The man’s solicitor said: “The family are very relieved and grateful that the matter has been brought to a successful conclusion and that the care for their son is now assured long-term.
