GARDA RECEIVES COMPENSATION
Posted in News on Tuesday, March 7th, 2023
Liam Dunford and Ernest Cantillon at Cantillons Solicitors recently successfully represented a member of An Garda Síochána in the High Court who suffered serious personal injuries as a result of a violent assault on him whilst on duty. He received a kick to his head and suffered post-concussion syndrome and other physical injuries. The case was heard remotely, with the Client attending at our offices and was able to watch on-line, his case being presented by his Legal Team to the Judge (remotely). The Client had already sworn a very comprehensive Affidavit which had set out fully the details of his assault, the injuries sustained to him (supported by medical reports) and details of his out-of-pocket expenses.
After reading the comprehensive Affidavit and listening to the Legal Teams Submissions the Court awarded our client compensation in line with his injuries plus all of his out-of-pocket expenses, plus costs. Our client was very happy with the result as he avoided the stress of having to attend Court, more particularly in these current times.
Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic the High Court Garda Compensation List is been heard remotely and we at Cantillons Solicitors are actively engaging in this new procedure to ensure that cases are moved along and listed for hearing when ready.

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.
