Factory worker injured by falling glass awarded damages (via The Irish Times)

A glass factory worker who sustained injuries to his lower limbs after being struck and knocked to the ground by several sheets of glass that fell from a trolley has been awarded a six-figure sum in damages by the High Court.

The award, which has yet to be finalised by Mr Justice Garrett Simons, was made in favour of 59-year-old James Molloy who sustained compression injuries to his lower limbs, back as well as several lacerations.

Mr Molloy of Knight’s Crescent, Nenagh, Co Tipperary had sued his employer Tipperary Glass Limited of Railway Road, Templemore Co Tipperary, who he alleged had been negligent, for injuries sustained on March 16th, 2018.

Liability in the case had been admitted and the action was before the court for assessment of damages only.
