It was a dark August night. Mary was on her way back to the caravan. She had been out with her friends at a restaurant. She was walking back to the caravan park. The caravan park is at the end of a long, single-lane roadway. There is a footpath to the right-hand side. There is no lighting on the roadway. Mary was walking along the footpath. She tripped and fractured her right ankle. It turned out that building work was being carried out on the footpath but no proper signage was in place.

Mary came to Griffin Solicitors. We advised lodging an application into the Injuries Board. This was rejected. Court proceedings were taken in the local court in Wexford. Just prior to the hearing the matter was settled for €21,250.

The above story is true. However, the names of the people involved and the locations have been changed to protect their privacy.
