Compensation for Waitress Injured at Work

Posted in News on Wednesday, July 26th, 2023

Jody Cantillon and the Litigation Team at Cantillons Solicitors recently obtained significant compensation for a client who suffered injury, loss and damage following a workplace accident.

Our client was a waitress, working in a restaurant, when she suffered injuries as a result of a glass smashing in her hand.        An Application was made to PIAB (formerly the Injuries Board), and the matter was released from that process. Thereafter, Circuit Court Personal Injuries Proceedings issued.

The Defendant denied liability. We instructed an Engineering Expert, and carried out extensive research regarding the correct practice and procedures for managing glassware in restaurants.

The matter was listed for Hearing and ultimately settled, resulting in significant compensation being paid to our client. The settlement was obtained without the need for our client to give evidence. The Defendant was also required to pay our client’s legal costs.

* 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” or “no win no fee Solicitors Dublin”. 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.
