If you are a healthcare worker and have sustained an injury during the course of your employment you may be entitled to bring an application for compensation.
This application may involve an application to the Injuries Board, the Criminal Injuries Compensation Tribunal or under the Compensation Scheme for Nurses. We have represented healthcare workers who have been injured in all sorts of circumstances, including
- Assaults by patients
- Injury caused by lifting patients
- Needle-stick injuries
There are time limits within which an action must be commenced. An Injuries Board application should be brought generally speaking within two years. Some Schemes allow far lesser periods. If you are a healthcare worker and you have been injured the course of your employment, contact our Firm as soon as possible for guidance on these strict time limits.
* In contentious business, a Solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement. Many Personal Injury Solicitors portray themselves as “no win no fee Solicitors Cork”. This term can be misleading and it is essential that you discuss fees with the Personal Injury Solicitor you ultimately choose. At Cantillons Solicitors, we are entirely transparent.
