Significant Compensation for Worker Injured in Workplace Accident

Posted in News on Monday, July 19th, 2021

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

Our client was working in a hospital when a heavy object fell from above and struck our client on the head, causing serious injuries.  The case proceeded through the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB) but was released as the Defendant was initially disputing liability.  High Court Personal Injuries proceedings were issued and ultimately, the Defendant admitted liability. Our client was out of work for a number of years, and as a result suffered 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.
