Our Client had been up in the Wicklow mountains for the day and travelled back home along the N11. He came to a junction where the traffic lights were amber, so he slowed down and stopped. All of a sudden a car hit him from behind, and another car ran into the back of that car. His son who is 12 was a front seat passenger. He checked to see if he was ok and then got out of the car, the other Drivers got out as well. Straight away our Client realised he had a pain in his neck and he asked the Driver of the car behind if he was ok. They were all in shock. The driver behind our Client rang the Guards, in the meantime a Garda car from Blackrock Station arrived on the scene and they asked if anyone needed to go to Hospital. Then they got everyone to exchange details. They moved everyone off the road to the side and everyone waited for about twenty minutes as the other cars had to be towed away. The Gardai told our client to go to his local Station and bring his Insurance and details of his NCT. He then drove home. Our Client received €10,300 for this accident resulting in injuries to his neck and constant headaches.

Our client was employed as a general operative, but effectively, never received a contract, nor did she ever receive any training. She worked on a machine and whilst working on that machine, a sensor broke. This had happened before and she went around to fix it. There were bottles falling off the machinery so she had had to move quickly. There was a worker on the other side of the bottle belt, but he had been new to the job. Our client believed it may have been his first day. He could not have been expected to know how to fix this. Our client, on the other hand, was never trained, but had learned by default how to fix this particular sensor. There are normally two pallets alongside the belt on her side. These are for putting bottles on. They have cardboard on top of them. For some reason, on this particular day, there was a third pallet, which effectively blocked her route completely. She had to stand on the third one to run around to the other side of the belt, and whilst doing so, her foot slipped and she suffered muscle damage to her leg. Her supervisors came and made some comment to the effect that somebody had kicked her and tried to play it down. Our client ended up being out of work for two weeks.
