Three children who suffered whiplash injuries when their mother’s car was rear-ended in a road accident in January 2007 have been awarded €56,000 by Circuit Court President Justice Matthew Deery.

Ms Monica Carney of Lucan hit the car containing Rachael Hopkins (9) and her brothers Daniel (10) and Thomas (7) from Broadford, County Kildare from behind leading to the children receiving their injuries. They were treated by the family GP and a specialist consultant.

The impact the injuries sustained had on the two brothers, Daniel and Thomas was greater than that of Rachael Hopkins and a settlement of €20,000 was agreed for both, Rachael received €16,000 and they will receive the settlement amount when they are 18 years of age.
