Jody Cantillon, and the Litigation Team of Cantillons Solicitors, recently successfully obtained significant compensation for a client who suffered injuries, loss and damage as a result of a workplace accident.

Our client was opening a window at their place of work when, due to poor workmanship, a part of the window fell and hit our client on the head. Our client suffered a concussion and psychological injuries as a result of the accident.

The matter was referred to the Personal Injuries Assessment Board PIAB (formerly the Injuries Board), and the matter was released from that process given the complexity of our client’s injuries.

Thereafter, High Court Personal Injuries Proceedings issued.  Given the type of case, it was necessary to sue our client’s employer, and also the window manufacturer/installer.  Whilst the case was initially defended, following an inspection of the window by an Engineer appointed by Cantillons Solicitors, liability was admitted. The matter ultimately settled with our client receiving significant compensation for the injuries, loss, and damage.

* 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.
