A man who sustained nerve damage to his arm after a pub door fell from its hinges has been awarded 35,000 Euros in compensation for radial nerve injury by a court in Dublin.
Radoslaw Wojtkow (31) from Dundrum in Dublin had been departing from The Living Room pub on Cathal Brugha Street in the city centre on 27 May 2009 when an emergency door which had been opened to permit customers to enter and leave the pub fell from its hinges and struck him on the arm.
An x-ray the following day failed to find a fracture but, as the pain in his arm continued, Radoslaw consulted a neurologist who conducted a scan on his arm which revealed damage to the radial nerve. Radoslaw sought legal advice and claimed compensation for radial nerve injury from the owners of The Living Room – Murraywalsh Ltd.
However, as Mr Justice Matthew Deery at the Dublin Circuit Civil Court heard, Murraywalsh Ltd failed to offer a defence in the case and a judgement against them had been made in their absence. The judge was told that the case was before him for assessment of damages only and, after studying medical reports relating to the arm injury, Mr Justice Matthew Deery awarded Radoslaw 35,000 Euros in compensation for radial nerve injury.

A man from New Jersey, who slipped on an icy patch in a restaurant car park and sustained severe injuries as a result, has settled his claim for restaurant injury compensation shortly before his case was due to be heard in court.
The victim, who wished to remain anonymous, was visiting the Perkins Restaurant on Route 46 in Budd Lake, New Jersey, in January 2007, when he slipped on an untreated icy patch adjacent to a storm drain in the restaurant car park.
As a result of the fall, the victim sustained multiple shoulder and spine injuries – including disc herniations which required spinal fusion surgery and plates to be inserted to support his lower back. Despite treatment costing in excess of 250,000 dollars, the victim is still unable to walk any length of distance and perform routine daily activities.
After seeking legal advice, the single father of two children made a restaurant injury compensation claim against the owners of the restaurant – K Investments Limited L.P. – and, shortly before the case was scheduled to be heard in court, a settlement was negotiated between the man´s legal representatives and the restaurant´s public liability insurers.
