Compensation for Workplace Accident

Posted in News on Thursday, February 2nd, 2023

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

Our client was working at a premises when a defective door slammed and caused significant injuries to our client’s hand. An application was made to PIAB (formerly the Injuries Board) and the matter was released from that process.

Thereafter, Circuit Court Personal Injury proceedings issued.

The matter ultimately settled, resulting in significant compensation for our client. This 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”. 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.
