Car Accident Claim Settled
Posted in News on Thursday, June 25th, 2020
Jody Cantillon and the Litigation Team at Cantillons Solicitors recently settled a case for a client who suffered a whiplash injury as a result of a road traffic accident.
Our client was the driver of a vehicle which was rear ended and suffered injuries as a result. PIAB assessed the matter based on the Book of Quantum. However the assessment was rejected by our client, on our advice, as it was not sufficient compensation for the injuries suffered. The matter proceeded to Court.
Ultimately, an offer was made by the Defendant which was over and above that which was made by PIAB. This was accepted by the client. The client did not have to go to Court. As part of the settlement, our client’s legal fees were paid by the Defendant.

* 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.
