Recent Personal Injuries Settlement by Dillon Solicitors
Dillon Solicitors recently secured a substantial five figure settlement for a client in a personal injuries action against a now former employer.
The action arose due to defective work boots supplied to our client. Our client had raised the issue with the employer at the time but no steps were taken to rectify the problem and/or replace the defective work boots. Employers owe a duty of care to employees to provide a safe system of work and to provide proper equipment to include work wear, among other obligations.
During the course of employment, our client was caused to trip and fall on steps which was directly caused by the defective boots. Our client sustained injuries to the knee, back and hip which had more long term effects than expected and had a significant impact on day to day life and in particular curbed recreational activities for a prolonged period of time. Our client also missed 2 months from work due to the injuries.
The case was handled by Niall MacCarthy assisted by Justyne Moran. Niall handles a significant caseload of personal injuries, medical negligence and employment law files in the office.
Our client was delighted with the outcome and settlement achieved relatively early in the proceedings. The referral of a friend in need to legal advice was the best compliment paid and very much appreciated.
