Painter Settles High Court Action After Fall At Wicklow Property

A painter who fell 16 feet to the ground from a ladder while working in Wicklow four years ago, has settled his High Court action.

According to Breakingnews.ie,  60-year old Vincent Barry was painting at a property in Newcastle in 2016, when it’s alleged the ladder snapped in two and he fell on to the concrete below, fracturing his skull suffering a traumatic brain injury.

He spent fourteen weeks in hospital and four months in the National Rehabilitation Hospital.

He had sued for €3 million, but his legal team told the court that the insurance company had gone into liquidation.

As a result, Mr Barry will only have access to a maximum of €825,000 under the Insurance Compensation Fund.
