PORTER ASSAULTED AT WORK RECEIVES SIGNIFICANT COMPENSATION


Posted in News on Thursday, July 28th, 2022

Jody Cantillon and the Litigation Team at Cantillons Solicitors successfully represented a client who suffered serious injuries as a result of an assault at work.

Our client was a Hospital Porter working in a busy Hospital when he was assaulted by a patient, causing injury, loss and damage.

The case proceeded through the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB). An Assessment was made. Having considered the Assessment, we advised our client to reject it as we felt it was insufficient compensation for the injuries suffered.

High Court Personal Injuries proceedings issued and ultimately, the Defendants admitted liability.  Our client was out of work for a period of time and suffered a loss of earnings and a loss to their pension.

The case was listed for hearing before the High Court when the case settled for significant compensation. The settlement was made without our client having to give evidence in 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.
