A WOMAN awarded €17,500 damages after a road collision has not made a claim for damage to her car because "it wasn't worth much". The Circuit Court heard that Marguerite McGill (34), of Broombridge Road, Cabra, Dublin, had stopped at Finglas Garda Station when her 12-year-old Renault Megane was allegedly hit from behind.
Ms McGill told Judge Jacqueline Linnane she had received an estimate of €4,000 to repair her car but felt it was not worth it and confined her damages claim to whiplash injuries.
