MHP’S Emma Colleran successfully defends case of boy who claimed deflated ball led to injury
A schoolboy has failed in his personal injury action where he claimed his primary school was negligent in supplying him with a deflated football that caused him to break his wrist during a soccer match.
Judge Keys said if the case was to succeed “I think you have to stop playing football altogether in schools”. He further said “I am afraid that is an accident, these things happen.”
Emma Colleran of MHP acted on behalf of Allianz, the insurers of Ennis Educate Together School, in this case.
A prominent litigation practice, MHP is widely regarded and respected as one of the leading Irish insurance defence litigation firms, with experience built up in this sector over 50 years, acting for many of the country’s leading insurance companies as well as self-insured clients.
