Labourer awarded compensation for tractor injury

Posted on 20th April, by Joanne in Personal Injury. No Comments

A Labourer working on a Stud Farm was awarded damages in the sum of €86,000 in respect of his personal injury action.

Mr. Justice Seán Ryan made an assessment of the personal injury award in the sum of €172,500 but concluded that the Plaintiff was 50% responsible for his accident, and therefore he halved the sum due to 50% contributory negligence.

Mr. Justice Seán Ryan ruled that the Defendants in this matter were indeed in breach of their statutory duty to provide safe equipment for the Plaintiff.
