Ian Mallon Solicitors recently settled 2 High Court Personal Injury cases.
Both clients suffered serious injuries in work.
The first was as a result of a fall from a roof resulting in a fractured hip, requiring surgery.
Liability was accepted and the case was progressed to a settlement meeting where damages were agreed in the sum of €210,000.00 plus costs.
The second case involved an injury suffered whilst inflating a wheel resulting in facial injuries, fractures and scarring. Liability was accepted after discussions.
This settled for €275,000.00 at a settlement at the High Court.
Both accidents occurred due to serious breaches of work place health & safety requirements and could easily have been prevented with proper safety measures and training.
