Jody Cantillon and the Litigation Team at Cantillons Solicitors successfully represented a client who suffered injuries while shopping in a well-known Department Store.

While walking around the Department Store, our client was caused to slip and fall as a result of a wet floor. The floor was not being monitored and it should not have been wet.

The Department Store tried to persuade our client to withdraw the case however, having considered our advice, our client proceeded with the case which ultimately ran for 3 days before the High Court. The High Court found in favour of our client and awarded our client compensation for the injuries suffered.

The Department Store appealed the High Court’s decision to the Court of Appeal. We then successfully represented our client before the Court of Appeal and the Department Store’s appeal was dismissed.

* 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.
