Comments None

A women has been awarded €25,000 in compensation by the Circuit Court after she was hit on the foot by a tin of paint in July 2009.
The accident occurred at the Homebase Store in Santry, Co.Dublin. Breeda Redican of Donabate, County Dublin wanted help in finding a specific paint type and although an assistant pointed it out to her, they failed to assist any further. The paint can weighed 2.5 litres and with no handle visible, the can slipped as Ms.Redican lifted it and she sustained an injury to her foot.
She has suffered ongoing mobility problems since and taking all factors into account Judge Jacquline Linnane ruled in her favour.
