March 21, 2019

A child who fell and banged her head off the edge of a table in a Co Donegal creche has been awarded €7,500.

The child, who was almost three years old at the time of the fall in 2013, sued the owners of the Letterkenny creche through her parents.

The case arose at Letterkenny Circuit Civil Court.

The girl, who was two years and nine months old at the time of the incident on April 19th, 2013, suffered a laceration above her left eye as a result of the incident.

Judge James O’Donoghue heard she was taken to the Emergency department at Letterkenny University Hospital where she had stitches inserted.

The court was told she was left with a scar over her eye.

Judge O’Donoghue approved the damages offer of €7,500 after hearing evidence from Gareth McRory, B.L., instructed by solicitor McGinley and Company Solicitors.
