Megan Ledden, now aged 14 years, of Glasnevin, Dublin, has been awarded almost £17,000 in bus accident compensation 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 incident 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 collided with the floor. She suffered a cut on the right side of her forehead and some bruising on her knee. This resulted in a permanent faint scarring under the hairline on her forehead, although it cannot be seen.
The bus accident compensation settlement was approved by Mr Justice Matthew Deery approved who also awarded legal costs to Ms Ledden.
