Fachtna O’Driscoll Solicitors secured a settlement for a client who was caused to slip and fall outside her premises as a result of a defect in a stair. Our client had previously warned the owner of the defect but nothing was done to fix it. She slipped and fell causing injuries to her lower back. The owner of the property argued that he was not responsible for the accident and it was necessary to instruct an engineer and obtain a report and proceed to court for a full hearing of the case. Our client won the case and obtained the compensation she deserved for the personal injuries she suffered as a result of the negligence of the owner.
