“In the past few weeks a woman was awarded €20,000 for banging her knee off a table leg that happened to be covered by a table cloth in a hotel. Then a Trainee Dental Nurse, who was called an Effing Skankhole by a Dublin Bus Driver lost a €75,000 damages claim for deformation of character.

Roger Murray’s Interview on HSE settlement for €3.8m for boy left paralysed after hospital treatment in Wexford
Click below to listen to Roger Murray’s, Joint Managing Parter & Head of Medical Negligence Callan Tansey Solicitors, Interview on HSE Settlement.
The HSE has agreed a settlement of €3.8 million in the case of a 12-year-old boy who was left paralysed following treatment in Wexford General Hospital. Matthew McGrath was left without the use of arms and legs when he contracted meningitis at just 17 months old. According to RTE News, Wexford General Hospital has admitted liability to Matthew and his parents. They state that the settlement is an interim one which will cover five years of his care. Solicitor for the McGrath family, Roger Murray from Callan Tansey, spoke to Jonathan Helay on Newstalk Lunchtime about the case today. Presenter Jonathan Healy asked what Matthew discussed with the judge, Mr Murray replied: “He had a great chat in court with the judge in relation to his favourite topic which is rugby. In relation to where Matthew’s treatment went wrong, Mr Murray stated: “It was a combination of the wrong test being done at the wrong time. All of the expert evidence suggested that Matthew’s meningitis, yes it was serious… but if treated in an appropriate fashion, he would have emerged unscathed”.
In relation to the HSE investigation, he said: “The question needs to be asked, does it take 11 years for appropriate investigations to be done and conclusions drawn? Is it right, is it fair, is it just?
“Why does it need to get to this stage before the penny drops with the HSE?”
