Woman’s ‘opportunistic’ €60,000 personal injuries claim thrown out (via Independent.ie)

A 51-year-old Malahide, Co Dublin, woman, whose €60,000 personal injuries claim has been thrown out in the Circuit Civil Court, was described as “opportunistic” by the judge.

Judge James O’Donohoe heard that Lesley Duffy, of Seabury Glen, Malahide, had been involved in what was described by defence barrister Veronica McInerney as a “minor, low-speed, minimal impact collision.”

Duffy said it seemed like a bus had struck the rear of her car and she had suffered a soft tissue injury to her cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine and had a reduced range of movements in her sacral and cervical spine.
