Jody Cantillon and the Litigation Team at Cantillon’s Solicitors recently successfully obtained significant compensation for a client who suffered injury, loss and damage following a fall in a shop.

In summary, our client was walking along an aisle in a shop when he was caused to fall on a wet floor. Our client suffered serious injuries as a result of this accident and required a number of surgeries thereafter.

The matter was referred to the Injuries Board (now PIAB and/or the Personal Injuries Resolution Board). The Defendant rejected the PAIB process and an Authorisation issued, permitting the matter to proceed through the Courts.

We brought High Court Personal Injuries Proceedings on behalf of our client. The case settled for significant compensation, without our client having to give evidence in Court. The Defendant also paid our client’s legal costs.

At Cantillons Solicitors we have a proven track record in helping our clients with claims arising out of injuries suffered as a result of slips and falls in shops and other public places.

We have launched proceedings for clients who have suffered injuries as a result of defective footpaths, defective roads and due to local authority negligence.

If you are considering making a Personal Injury Claim, Cantillons Solicitors can help.  Contact us using the contact form below, call us on +353 (0)21 4275673 or email us at for more information. Our offices are located at 39 South Mall, Cork and 31-36 Ormond Quay Upper, Dublin. We do, however, represent clients from all over Ireland.

* 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.
