Painter injured at club wins €100,000 damages
A MAN who suffered serious facial injuries after he fell through a glass door following an incident outside a nightclub has been awarded €100,600 in High Court damages.
Paul Brady (37), right, of The Beeches, Ballybofey, Donegal, was left with severe facial disfigurement after he tried to break up a fight when he left Stampies nightclub in Ballybofey on October 27, 2002 with friends.
He brought a claim for damages against Bridget Heeney and her sons Terence Michael and Aidan Heeney, who are the owners and operators of the nightclub.
In his action, the painter and decorator claimed the club failed to supervise the area to the rear of the nightclub and there was also failure to ensure there was an adequate number of bouncers in the club and in the yard.
