The young mum from Dublin rewarded more than half a million euros after she suffered a brain injury while & # 39; tram surfing & # 39; on a Luas returned to critics of the payout, saying "haters will be haters".
Rebecca Kelly, 20, received 550,000 euros on Friday for the accident at the Supreme Court, which happened when she was just 13.
Social media users took their hands with thousands to make the decision, so one of Kelly's friends advised her to remove her social media account, Dublin Live reports.
Reactingly the Independent reports that Mrs Kelly has blown: "I know where the use comes from, but I do not hide." B **** x someone who is bad, me or my child f *** all haters will be haters to be. "
Kelly, from Pearse House on Pearse Street in the downtown area of the south, had admitted that the accident was her own fault and that she should not have jumped on the outside of a tram when she departed from Fatima Station to Tallaght because she knew it was dangerous.
Her counsel, Bruce Antoniotti SC, also told the court that his client did not blame the driver for her injuries.
Ms. Kelly, who became a mother only two weeks ago, had filed a complaint against Luas operator Veolia Transport Dublin Light Rail Ltd and Veolia Transport Ireland Ltd of St. John Rogerson's Quay, Dublin via her mother Elizabeth Kelly. the accident on 3 September 2010.
She claimed that working with Veolia Transport was not activated by an adequate visual system on the tram, as a result of which the driver was unable to see the non-platform side of the tram under the circumstances before leaving the station.
It was claimed that the tram had been pulled from the station without first observing the non-platform side of the tram.
All claims were rejected and Veolia claimed that the young girl had been co-debted because she had been exposed to the risk of trauma caused by tramlines with total disregard for her own safety.
The court also heard that 54 tramp surf incidents were reported between 2005 and 2010.
The approval of the € 550,000 settlement, Mr Justice Cross, said that it was not necessary for the court to tell Ms. Kelly that she was doing something stupid because she knew it.
He praised the mother, however, for her honesty.
