Man injured while putting up election posters

    IMMEDIATE CALLBACK:



    Tom Stanton the plaintiff in this case was injured when he fell off a wall. He had been trying to place a Paula Desmond election poster on a pole between two rival candidate posters in February 2011.

    The Plaintiff fractured his ribs as a result of his fall. He issued proceedings against the Labour party in the High Court and the case was heard before Mr. Justice John Hedigan.

    The Plaintiff told the Court he was not a member of the Labour Party but had been recruited by Ms. Desmond’s campaign team to erect election posters as he had helped with postering in a previous election.

    The Labour Party denied liability for the fall stating the Plaintiff failed to take proper safety measures when erecting the posters.

    The Engineering evidence on behalf of the Plaintiff suggested the safest way of putting up posted would be with a cherry picker on the back of a truck similar to those used by the ESB.

    The case was due to go into its second day of hearing at the High Court in Cork but was settled out of Court and the case struck out on undisclosed terms.
