Teen Awarded €40,000 for fall

A Dublin teenager who suffered serious injuries to his left hand that required extensive surgery at Temple Street Children’s Hospital has been awarded €40,000 in the High Court due to Dublin City Council’s failure to clear broken glass from a public footpath outside his home.

The accident occurred in 2001 when Nathan Clarke of Ballymun, County Dublin was aged seven-years-old. The child accident claim against Dublin City Council was made on behalf of Nathan by his father Joseph Clarke and the High Court found in favour of the claimant.
