A hotel worker who cut his hand on a piece of glass while gathering up till receipts was awarded over €77,000 by the High Court.
Ms Justice Bronagh O'Hanlon said Adam Conway, 23, suffered a fairly serious injury and has been left with a zig zag scar on his left ring finger. He also now had a decreased grip on his left hand as a result of the accident, she said.
Mr Conway, Fairyhill, Bray, Co Wicklow, sued Mageiteagain Ltd (in liquidation), of Marino Mart, Fairview, Dublin, who were the owners at the time of the Royal Hotel & Merrill Leisure Club, Main Street, Bray , Co Wickow.

The accident occurred in the first half hour of the New Year's Day 2014 in the hotel's Ballroom Bar.
Mr Conway, who was an assistant duty manager at the time, was directed to tidy items from around the cash register at the bar.

Unfortunately, the judge said, a piece of glass was tucked between the receipts and Mr Conway suffered a deep cut to the left ring finger.
He was taken to hospital and later had to have surgery.

Mr Conway claimed there was a failure to have a safe system of work in or about the disposal of broken glass and till receipts and that a hazard or trap had been created at the cash register.
The case was undefended.

The court heard that Mr Conway will become one of the preferential creditors in the liquidation of the defendant company.
In evidence, Mr Conway said he missed his third level exams the following spring as he is left hand-dominant and he could not write.

He was three months off work and also has pain if he has to carry heavy items.
Ms Justice O'Hanlon awarded €75,000 in general damages and €2,491 in special damages.

I'm guessing he already does as he stated he uses his zigzag left hand to finger his ring, presumably at the same time. I'm just not sure who he wants to sue. If he got the zigzag scar on cut glass I suppose whoever shoved it up his arse is probably to blame but I'm no lawyer, maybe AJ can spread some light.

http://www.irishtimes.com/news/crime-and-law/courts/circuit-court/woman-who-said-bus-driver-called-her-skankhole-loses-case-1.3034832

Quote:
A trainee dental nurse who was called “a f**king skankhole” by a Dublin Bus driver has lost a €75,000 damages claim for defamation of character.

Roxana Pach, of Hansted Road, Lucan, Co Dublin, claimed the remark meant she was a woman of low morals, promiscuous, dishonest, socially undesirable and a prostitute.

Ms Pach told the Circuit Civil Court that on the evening of November 11th, 2015 she boarded a city-bound bus at Adamstown, Dublin, and was told by the driver to leave the bus and pick up some litter he said she had dropped.

She was embarrassed and had refused to do so. She asked for her ticket and he just stared at her. She had to repeat her request and he had then processed the transaction.

After doing so he had called her “a f**king scank” which greatly upset her. When eventually leaving the bus at her stop he said: “A f**king scankhole.”

The driver told barrister Jeri Ward, counsel for Dublin Bus, that there had been an exchange between them regarding the dropping of litter but he denied having used the words she claimed he had.

Circuit Court President, Mr Justice Raymond Groarke, said the court was satisfied the driver had made the remarks complained of.

Ms Ward said: “In day to day situations people use throwaway comments of criticism which are not meant in any defamatory manner. The bus driver got annoyed when the plaintiff refused to pick up the litter but no reasonable person would pick up the meaning of the plaintiff being a woman of low moral standing, promiscuous or a prostitute by the remarks that had been made by the driver.”

Litter

Judge Groarke said Ms Pach had thrown litter onto the ground and he had complimented the driver for having taken her to task for that conduct. He had directed her to pick up the litter and put it in a bin at the door of the bus and she had said she would not.

“I have found that he uttered the words complained of and there is no question that the words used have the potential to be grievously defamatory of a woman in particular,” Judge Groarke said.

The question before the court was, would it be reasonable for anyone hearing those words spoken in the particular context of refusing to pick up the litter, determine Ms Pach was a person of low moral character.

Judge Groarke said he did not think so. In the real world, words were used for purposes of insult and causing offence and the words spoken by the driver had been used as a reprimand.

Half-intelligent

Dissmissing Ms Pach’s claim he said it seemed no half-intelligent person in the city of Dublin, hearing the discourse about not having picked up the litter, would conclude from it that she was an easy woman of low morals and low character.

Judge Groarke, stating that the words should not have been spoken, made no order as to costs against Ms Pach.

Absolutely not.

If that case succeeded she'd be looking to get about €10k, if even. If it was a properly nasty defamation it could be up to €20k, but the amount of people who see it is always relatively low in these cases.

One of the recent developments of court reporting here is that they've started suggesting people are claiming the full value of the court. One drafts looking for "damages for breach of contract/whatever limited to the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court." You don't nominate a figure for unliquidated damages in Ireland.

It's a sneaky way of making people seem greedy. You don't read a claim about a High Court case where somebody is claiming for an infinite amount of money because the average reader would realise that's mental and question it.

Woman awarded €20k for banging knee on table leg in restaurant

Friday, March 31, 2017 Ray Managh

A €20,000 High Court damages award to a woman who banged her knee against the leg of a table while sitting down to dinner will have serious repercussions for hoteliers and restaurateurs.

Ms Justice Mary Faherty heard that hairdresser Annette O’Connor had been directed to a table in The Mullingar Park Hotel restaurant, had waited while the manager politely withdrew her chair, then sat down and injured her left knee as she pulled her chair in to the table.

Ms O’Connor, aged 48 of The View, Larchill, Santry, Dublin, had booked a Mother’s Day weekend at the hotel with five friends in March 2011.

She claimed that being directed to the table setting right over the leg, which was concealed by a table cloth, constituted “a trap” and negligence on the part of the hotel owners Euro Plaza Hotel Limited which trades as The Mullingar Park Hotel.

Ms O’Connor told Padraig McCarton, senior counsel, who appeared for her with barrister Paul Twomey, that she had not been given any warning from the restaurant manager that the leg was hidden right beneath where she had been directed to sit.

She had been awarded €18,000 damages at Mullingar Circuit Court by Judge Doirbhile Flanagan whose judgment was appealed to the High Court. Ms Justice Faherty affirmed the lower court’s finding and increased damages to €20,000 and costs.

Ms O’Connor claimed she immediately felt pain and shock but had her meal before retiring to her room where staff had brought her an ice pack and a drink to settle her nerves.

When she returned home she had attended her local doctor, Beaumont Hospital for X-rays and later a specialist in muscle spasm. The injury had disrupted her personal and professional life.

A forensic engineer said if he had been asked pre-accident to risk assess the set up in the dining room he would not have directed the hotel to warn people about the presence of the table leg under the tablecloth.

Misunderstood, so I am.

Fairly confusing one here:

Quote:
A judge said today that he faced evasion and exaggeration regarding the degree of injury presented to the Circuit Civil Court by three brothers and a friend who, between them, sought to recover €240,000 in damages.
Each claimed damages of €60,000 in what barrister Conor Kearney described as assessment only cases on the basis that liability had been conceded regarding a road traffic accident.
Circuit Court President, Mr Justice Raymond Groarke, said the first of the brothers, Sarteeb Babaiee, of Sorrell Heath, Clonsilla, Dublin, had misled the court and had set the standard of evidence to come.

The judge said the evidence given to the court would influence the level of personal injury decrees the court would award. Sarteeb was awarded €7,570 damages.
Judge Groarke said Sarteeb’s brother, Rebwar, had been unreliable in regards to all aspects of the case involving a traffic accident on Clonsilla Road, Blanchardstown, in April 2014 and had been manipulative and false. He too was awarded €7,570 damages.

The judge said another brother, Karwan, a trainee accountant, had convinced him he had sustained injury and had undergone acupuncture.
“His evidence drags all of these cases over the line and I accept the impact was one which did indeed result in personal injury,” Judge Groarke told barrister Shane English.

Mr English, who appeared with Ennis and Associats Solicitors, represented Aviva Insurance Limited and the car driver and defendant, Sardar Babaiee, who had been sued by his brothers who were passengers in his car.
Karwan, whose address at Sorrell Heath, Clonsilla, was the same as that of the brother he sued, was awarded €12,570 damages.

A fourth passenger in the car had been former Bohemians third string footballer Nazar Othman, of Laverna Way, Castleknock, Dublin, who also sued Sardar Babaiee. He was awarded €7,570 damages.
Mr Kearney, counsel for all of the injured parties, appeared with Tiernan and Company Solicitors and was granted District Court costs in all cases.

He told the court that the single vehicle accident occurred on April 27, 2014 and had been reported to the gardaí in Blanchardstown on the same evening. He said Sardar Babaiee’s car had gone out of control and had struck a lamp post.

And promptly sue the Prison Service for not protecting him adequately.
