Boy (13) settles case over ‘fairly violent’ road collision for €4 million (via Irish Times)

A 13-year-old boy who the High Court heard was in “a fairly violent” road collision in Co Cork five years ago has settled his court action for €4 million.

Among Darragh O’Regan’s claims against the HSE was an allegation that his pre-existing brain cyst was perforated in the accident. A portion of his case was against the HSE, and it was claimed this perforation was allegedly missed when he went to Cork University Hospital emergency department six days after the crash.

The teenager, who lives in the Cayman Islands had been on holiday in Co Cork, where his grandparents live, when a hire car driven by his father collided with another car, with an attached caravan, parked on the hard shoulder at Ballyhea, Charleville on August 7th, 2017.
