Megan Ledden, now 14 years old, has been awarded almost £17,000 in damages at the Circuit Civil Court in a case against the owner of a minibus following an incident where she was struck in the head by a wing mirror.
The bus accident involving the bus occurred in March 2007 on a pedestrian crossing on Old Finglas Road. Ms Ledden was knocked unconscious after she fell back and her head hit the ground. She suffered a laceration on the right side of her forehead and some bruising to her knee. This lead to a permanent faint scarring under the hairline on her forehead, although it is not visible.
The bus injury accident compensation settlement was approved by Mr Justice Matthew Deery approved who also awarded legal costs to Ms Ledden.
