This has to be one of the worst cases of compo culture.
When I first read the story I thought the children were trapped in the lift alone but they were with their mother.
I think a 100 euro voucher would have done.
Two children awarded €7,500 each after being trapped in Lidl lift for 30 minutes - Courts, National News - Independent.ie
Barrister David Richardson told the court that six-year-old Dawson Wilson was with his mother Gwendolyn and his cousin Luke Wilson (12) in the lift on June 25, 2011 when it stuck.
He said the incident happened in Lidl’s Cork Street, Dublin, store and both children suffered psychological injuries and retained a fear of lifts because of their experience.
Mr Richardson said Ms Wilson and the children were trapped in the lift which had broken down for half an hour before she managed to prise open the doors.
He said both children had attended their GP, Dr Barbara Smyth, Crumlin Road, Dublin. They suffered sleeplessness and anxiety following the incident.
