€30,00 restaurant Accident Compensation for Girl (3) Injured by Table Blown in the Wind

Following suffering a broken nose when a table blew over outside a restaurant, a three-year-old girl has been awarded €30,000 damages in the Circuit Civil Court.

Legal representative for Lily Spratt, who is now five years old, Barrister Ivan Daly said that she had been injured when a table in an outdoors seating area hit her face after being blown in the wind outside an O’Brien’s Sandwich Bar, at Lower Grand Canal Street, Dublin.

Mr Daly told Circuit Court President, Mr Justice Raymond Groarke, that the girl was treated, following the accident, at Temple Street Children’s Hospital where her nose had been repaired. During the procedure Lily had been place under general anaesthetic.

The restaurant injury compensation action was taken against Adleo Limited through Lily’s mother, Emma Kelly, York Road, Ringsend, Dublin 4. Lily has since completely recovered from the injuries that she suffered in the accident that happened during April 2018.

Mr Daly told the court that the young girl had suffered no permanent damage to her nose. He said: “Certainly there is no question of any disfigurement of her nose.” he was recommending that the court accept the settlement offer that was being made by Adleo Ltd.

Presiding Judge Judge Groarke gave his approval to the restaurant accident compensation settlement as he thought it to be a very good offer.
