€12,550 for boy who fractured foot in fall from slide at créche
A young boy, who fractured his right foot in a Dublin crèche, has settled his case for more than €12,000 in the Circuit Civil Court.
Barrister Siobhan Gaffney told the court yesterday that in June 2015 Aaron Bohan, now aged three-and-a-half, was at the Carefree Days Crèche and Montessori at Knockmaree, St Laurence's Road, Chapelizod, when he fell down a slide.
Ms Gaffney told Judge John Hannan that Aaron's mother, Maura, had not been informed by the crèche about the incident when she collected her son.
She noticed he was limping and, the next day, he attended the A&E Department of Children's University Hospital, Temple Street, Dublin, where X-rays revealed a fracture to his foot.
Aaron sued the crèche through his mother, Maura, of Kings Hall, Chapelizod. Judge Hannan heard the crèche had made a €12,550 settlement offer, which Ms Gaffney recommended to the court.
The judge, hearing that Aaron had made a full recovery and would not need further treatment, accepted the offer.
