Clare woman Kamila Grabska has had her €760,383 injury claim dismissed after she admitted to winning a Christmas tree-throwing competition days after telling a doctor she was in debilitating pain after a car accident.

Grabska sued RSA Insurance for damages after the car she was a passenger in was rear-ended in Ennis when she was on her way to work on February 3, 2017, according to the Irish Independent

The 36-year-old mother of two recently told a High Court sitting in Limerick that she suffers constant pain in her back, neck, and thoracic spine. She swore in an affidavit that her past and future loss of earnings due to chronic pain making it impossible for her to work amounted to more than €500,000.

However, Grabska told a doctor that she couldn’t lift a bag of groceries two days before she was photographed winning the Christmas tree-throwing competition on January 7, 2018.

The Irish Independent reports that when quizzed in court, Grabska said she didn’t tell her doctors about the Christmas tree-throwing competition because she ‘forgot.’

“Did it hurt you to throw the Christmas tree?” Murray Johnson SC, counsel for RSA Ireland, asked Grabska in court.

“I had a pain, yeah,” Grabska replied.

“You had a large smile on your face as you threw the tree,” Johnson said.

“I was smiling but that doesn’t mean I didn’t have a pain,” Grabska replied.

“You were also smiling when you received your prize,” Johnson said.

“I can say I was trying to live a normal life,” Grabska said.

The Irish Independent added that footage of Grabska play-wrestling with a “large and strong” Dalmatian dog for up to an hour and a half was also shown in court.

“I’m afraid I cannot but conclude the claims were entirely exaggerated," Judge Carmel Stewart said in court.

“On that basis, I propose to dismiss the claim.”

Irish High Court records show that Grabska's claim was dismissed on February 22.

Grabska's story has made international news in recent days. In a statement obtained by the US outlet PEOPLE, RSA Insurance said they were "very pleased with the outcome of this case and it sends out a clear message that we will robustly challenge any attempt to pursue claims that are not genuine."
