The twin brothers of an eight-year-old girl who was killed in a farm accident in Co Cork in 2014 have been awarded €30,000 each in the High Court.

Paula Dinsberga was killed when the front loader of a tractor fell on top of her while she was playing at a farm in Charleville in Co Cork on 28 September 2014.

Her parents had been at a relative's wedding in Latvia and she was staying with family friends.

Her twin brothers, Rainers and Patriks, through their mother, Linda, sued the owner of the tractor, Liam Guiney of Rusheen, Newtownshandrum in Co Cork and the driver of the tractor on the day, Edgars Pliesmanis from Owenmore Drive, Raheen in Co Limerick.

Mr Pliesmanis' 11-year-old daughter was injured in the same incident.

Rainers and Patriks Dinsberga were almost six years old at the time and they were at the farm when their sister was killed.

The court heard they witnessed the emergency situation that followed.

The court was told that Rainers displayed symptoms of ADHD which could be a symptom of post traumatic stress disorder.

The court also heard that Patriks suffered from cerebral palsy and had a very close relationship with his sister who took a special role in helping him and playing with him.

The court was told he had witnessed his sister being pronounced dead at the scene.

He had been a happy-go-lucky child but was now suffering from ongoing nightmares and a "grief reaction" to her death.

Mr Justice Kevin Cross told the children's parents Linda and Raivo that what had happened to Paula was terrible and devastating.

He said the twins had coped "reasonably well in the circumstances" and he said he would approve the settlement of €30,000 each.
