Cantillons successful in securing significant award for a minor as a result of injuries suffered during the course of a school outing


Posted in News on Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

Amy and the Litigation Team were successful in representing a teenager who suffered serious injuries as a result of an accident which occurred during the course of a school trip. 

Proceedings were issued against the school as well as the occupiers of the premises on which this accident occurred and the organisers of the activity in question.

Full Defences were filed on behalf of all of the Defendants in this matter and liability was denied up to the point of trial. The Defendants refused to try and settle the matter in advance of the hearing.

However, the case ultimately settled on the morning of the trial and a significant offer was made by the Defendants which was accepted.

Cantillons were delighted to represent this young lady who achieved a significant award for the injuries she sustained without the need to go to Court.

“In contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement.”
