A traffic collision, also called a motor vehicle collision (MVC) among other terms, occurs when a vehicle collides with another vehicle, pedestrian, animal, road debris, or other stationary obstruction

Clarke (55) had sued Ryszard Stepien, of College House, College Lands, Rathcoole, Co Dublin, the driver of a Seat Ibiza that collided “at speed” into her Toyota Landcruiser on a shared laneway on October 2, 2015.

Ms Clarke, whose vehicle was hit from the front, alleged in her claim for damages of up to €60,000 that her head had been jerked backwards causing post-accident pain in her right upper back, neck and the back of her head.

She stated that while she does have a generalised history of arthritic pain her symptoms were greatly aggravated by the accident.  She had been diagnosed as having suffered a soft tissue whiplash.  On attending her GP it had been noted she had right trapezius and spinal spasm.

Clarke stated in her Civil Bill that she had been referred for physiotherapy and had about 30 sessions for which she claimed just over €5,000 in special damages with receipts.
