A glass factory worker who sustained injuries to his lower limbs in a work accident has been awarded €120,000 by the High Court.
James Molloy (59), who was struck by several sheets of glass which fell from a trolley, is also entitled to a further sum for loss of earnings into the future which will be finalised at a later date.
Mr Molloy, Knight’s Crescent, Nenagh, Co Tipperary, sustained compression injuries to his lower limbs, back as well as several lacerations as a result of the accident at Tipperary Glass Ltd of Railway Road, Templemore Co Tipperary, on March 16, 2018.
Liability in the case had been admitted by Tipperary Glass and the action was before the court for assessment of damages only.
Mr Justice Garrett Simons said that Mr Molloy was entitled to €75,000 in general damages plus a further €38,000 in damages for a loss of earnings to date.
