€54,000 award for taxi crash passenger


A computer technician who claimed he suffered back injuries when the taxi in which he was a passenger was rear-ended by another vehicle has been awarded €54,000 damages at the High Court.

President of the High Court Mr Justice Nicholas Kearns said Alberto Jorge Zulkouski sustained moderate back and neck injuries in the 2007 incident.

Earlier, the judge dismissed claims the case was a fraud and said it would be an injustice to dismiss it.

Mr Zulkouski, Swilly Road, Cabra West, Dublin, had sued Vasile Radu, Clearwater Court, North Royal Canal Bank, Ashtown, Dublin.
