Almost €18,000 in damages for car accident
Driver Antoine Cachia has been ordered by the Court to give close to €18,000 in compensation to Emmeline Cini who was injured in a traffic accident in 2007.
Mrs Cini was driving in Ghajn Dwieli Road, Paola in November 2007, when she was involved in a collision as Mr Cachia's car failed to stop at a stop sign and collided into her car. The court case was limited to damages as Mr Cachia, and his insurance company, admitted liability for the accident.
Emmeline Cini, a former croupier at the Dragonara Casino, was 27 years old at the time of the accident. She had suffered a flexion and extension injury to her neck and the court-appointed medical experts who estimated that she had a 4% permanent disability as a result of the accident.
After taking into account Ms Cini's salary at the time of the accident, the Court awarded her €17,948.84 in damages.
