Child Compensation for a Fall in Toy Shop Approved in Court
A girl of five, who will be left with a permanent scar after a fall in Hamleys, has had a settlement of child compensation for a fall in toy shop approved at the Circuit Civil Court.
Brianna Healy (5) from Ballinteer, Dublin, was just two-years-old when she fell and banged her head at the Hamleys Store in Dundrum, Dublin, on 23rd February 2009. Due to the incident, Brianna will have a scar on her face for the rest of her life.
At the Circuit Civil Court, Mr Justice Matthew Deery heard that the store had accepted liability for Brianna´s injury, but the family had not been satisfied with the original offer of compensation for a fall in toy shop and had taken legal advice.
A revised offer of 27,500 Euros was settled upon, which the family were happy with, and after hearing that the case was before him for the approval of damages, Mr Justice Matthew Deery approved the settlement and wished Brianna well for the future.
