Personal Injury: Case History – O’Donovan v John Hornibrook Ltd.

The Plaintiff, aged 42, was a felt roofer working for the Defendant. He was burned near the elbow when some hot bitumen spilled on his arm. He was taken to hospital in severe pain. He was treated but eventually had to re-attend and was admitted for five weeks. The arm took a long time to heal.

    Yes, there is; the Plaintiff was successful in his negligence/breach of duty claim against the Defendant.
