Plumber Awarded Compensation for Injury

A plumber has been awarded €6,750 in work injury compensation after he broke his ankle when he tripped over a stray wire at Dun Laoghaire Golf Club.

The Circuit Civil Court heard how Barry McGrath from Fingals in Dublin was leaving the premises after finishing work in May 2010 when the accident occurred.

Unable to work Mr.McGrath sought compensation for his injury and although the managers of the site Cosgraves Developments denied liability, Mr Justice Raymond Groarke found in the claimant’s favour.
