A WOMAN who took a €60,000 compo claim for a knee injury allegedly ran a mini marathon 11 weeks after being hurt at work.

Latvian national Olga Dresmane, of Water Rill, Malahide, Co Dublin and a security officer at Dublin Airport, was alleged to have taken part in a road race only weeks after suffering a knee injury.

Judge John Martin told the Circuit Civil Court that Ms Dresmane had set out to deceive every medical expert with the sole intention of increasing her damages award.

He said: “I have no doubt whatsoever that this case has come to court with the view of maximising her claim for damages.

“That is not permitted by law and what Ms Dresmane has done is outrageous.”

Judge Martin threw out the proceedings and ordered her to pay the costs of the case.

Defence barrister Padraic Hogan said Dresmane’s name had appeared on a list of runners participating in a 10k mini marathon 11 weeks after her accident at the airport.

However, Ms Dresmane claimed not to have run in it. 

Shortly afterwards she had been photographed in an 8k road race in Clontarf, Dublin.

When Judge Martin handed her a lap top with a zoomed-in picture of a woman kitted out for racing he asked her: “Is that you?”

Having examined the photo she said: “Mmmm Maybe.”

In his judgment he said Ms Dresmane’s employer, ICTS Ireland Limited, had conceded liability for her injury and the court had been asked to assess what damages were due to her.

He said: “An unusual feature of this case is that every single doctor involved had a difficulty understanding the length of time her injury had persisted.”

Dismissing her case the judge said it was a matter for the defendant ICTS, (International Consultants on Targeted Security with operational centres at Cork, Shannon and Dublin airports) to decide if there should be a follow up to his ruling on evidence presented to the court.
