Accident at Work Case Settles for €90,000.00
Rogers Solicitors recently secured another substantial High Court Settlement in relation to an accident at work claim. Our client suffered a nasty fracture to her ankle as a result of defective work equipment falling onto her ankle. It was argued by us that her employer was negligent and in breach of their duty of care towards their employee.
Court proceedings were issued at the High Court in Dublin, although the case thankfully did not go all the way to Trial. A settlement meeting was arranged at the Four Courts between ourselves and the legal team for our client's employer. After lengthy and often heated negotiations, a global settlement figure of €90,000.00 was agreed to take account of our client's pain and suffering, as well as her lost earnings.
In recent months Rogers Solicitors have secured several high value High Court cases as a result of accident at work claims. Accidents in the workplace can happen very easily, and employers must do all that they can to ensure the safety of employees in the workplace.
Our client was absolutely thrilled with the result, but also with the level of service that was provided by Rogers Solicitors. Several home visits were made to our client's home as she could not walk and her telephone calls and emails were always answered promptly We are specialist personal injury Solicitors and deal mainly with accidents at work cases, car accident cases, motorcycle accident cases and cases for medical negligence.
