Workmen’s Compensation Case Adjourned to Next Sessions

During the Limerick Quarter Sessions on Saturday, a case was brought forward by Michael Hartigan, a labourer, who summoned Patrick O’Shaughnessy, a stevedore, under the Workmen’s Compensation Act. Hartigan sought damages for injuries he sustained while working on the steamship Christina on April 26th, 1903.

His Honor, the presiding judge, decided to allow the case to be adjourned until the next sessions. This adjournment was necessary to consider whether Hartigan’s claim had been filed within the legal time frame as prescribed by the Workmen’s Compensation Act.

By granting the adjournment, the court aims to ensure a fair and thorough examination of the case, including a review of the timing of the claim submission. The Workmen’s Compensation Act is in place to protect the rights of workers and provide them with the necessary compensation for injuries sustained while on the job.

The decision to adjourn the case to the next sessions reflects the court’s commitment to upholding legal procedures and ensuring that all aspects of the claim are properly evaluated. This will enable a more informed and just resolution to be reached in due course.
