Compensation for worker who suffered injuries in a workplace accident as a result of faulty machinery

Posted in News on Monday, April 12th, 2021

Jody Cantillon and the Litigation Team at Cantillons Solicitors successfully represented a Client who suffered serious injuries in an accident at work while carrying out their duties and using a machine which was not fit for purpose.

Our Client was required to use a machine for which they received no training. The machine was also defective and hazardous.

The case proceeded through the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB), but was released due to the complexity of the injuries.

A full Defence, denying any liability, was filed by the Defendant employer. Ultimately, an offer was made for full and final settlement of our Client’s claim. Having consulted the Book of Quantum, and having considered the extent of our Client’s injuries, Cantillons Solicitors advised our Client to reject the offer.  Ultimately, we were able to settle the matter for compensation in excess of the original offer.

The settlement was made without our Client having 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.  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.
