A woman who slipped on a pavement in Dublin has been awarded €140,000 injuries arising as a result of the slip and fall.

The Court ruled that the Plaintiff was entitled to general damages to date in the sum of €40,000 with an award of €100,000 for general damages into the future.

The Defendant’s Counsel applied for a stay and a stay was granted provided €50,000 was paid to the Plaintiff on or before the 19th December 2016.
