Toy Store Compensation for Fall in 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 toy store compensation for a fall approved at the Circuit Civil Court.

Brianna Healy (5) from Ballinteer, Dublin, was just two years of age when she fell and hit her head at the Hamleys Toy Store in Dundrum, Dublin, on 23rd February 2009. Due to her accident, Brianna will have a permanent scar on her face for the rest of her life.

At the Circuit Civil Court, Mr Justice Matthew Deery heard that the toy store had admitted 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.

An improved offer of 27,500 Euros was negotiated, 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.
