A child of five, who cut her head in a fall at Hamleys Toy Store in Dublin, has had a negotiated settlement of fall in toy shop injury compensation approved in the Circuit Civil Court.
Circuit Court President, Mr Justice Matthew Deery, heard that Brianna Healy from Ballinteer in Dublin was just two years of age when the accident occurred in the store at the Dundrum Shopping Centre in February 2009.
Brianna´s father – Steven, through who the little girl made the claim for fall in toy shop injury compensation – told Mr Justice Matthew Deery that Brianna´s head had split open and she will be left with a permanent scar for the rest of her life.
The judge also heard that a previous offer of 20,000 Euros had been declined by the family on legal advice, but they were happy to accept the revised offer of 27,500 Euros in compensation for fall in toy shop injury. Mr Justice Matthew Deery approved the settlement.
