Former footballer awarded €60k over hit-and-run but has two separate cases dismissed

Former professional footballer Michael Keane, who played for St Pat's in Dublin, had two personal injury claims in the Circuit Civil Court dismissed, but collected damages totalling €60,000 on a third.

Mr Keane, of Blackhorse Grove, Blackhorse Avenue, Dublin 7, succeeded in the hit-and-run damages claim he brought against an uninsured driver and the Motor Insurers' Bureau of Ireland following an accident at Arran Court, Smithfield, Dublin, in which he was hit by a car.

Mr Keane told the court he was walking on February 12, 2014, when a car collided with him.

The driver stopped, reversed and said: "I have no insurance. I have to get out of here."

Judge Mary O'Malley Costello dismissed two separate €60,000 personal injury damages claims by Mr Keane, who will be 35 on December 29, after she was told that he was withdrawing both of them following talks and a private viewing of proposed video evidence.

In the two withdrawn claims, Mr Keane sued P&N Oil Limited, which owned a Maxol filling station at Constitution Hill, Dublin 7, on which he alleged he had slipped, and Shafahat Ali, of Allen Terrace, Phibsborough, Dublin, in relation to a car accident in July 2014.
