Recent Settlement in a personal injuries case by Dillon Solicitors

Dillon Solicitors recently achieved an excellent settlement for a client in a personal injuries case. Our client had entered a petrol station to pay having filled his car with fuel but upon entering the store, he slipped suddenly and without warning on a wet floor and was caused to fall heavily. The proceedings were issued on the basis that, amongst other allegations, there was no mat on the floor and insufficient or no warnings in place. It was also alleged that insufficient cleaning checks were in place and that the floor was unsafe.

Our client suffered a fracture of the left humerous (upper arm) which unfortunately had a significant impact on his day to day life for a number of weeks. Thankfully, the fracture healed well and he made good progress with his physio over the following months.

Settlement talks were convened by the Defendant and the claim was settled for a substantial five figure sum for general damages plus vouched out of pocket expenses plus legal costs. Our client was delighted to reach a very satisfactory conclusion to the case at a relatively early stage in the proceedings. Liability was not formally admitted by the Defendant.

The case was dealt with by Niall MacCarthy who handles a significant case load of litigation files with a particular focus on personal injuries, medical negligence and employment law.

Our client was delighted with the outcome and his feedback was very much appreciated:

Very professional, courteous and the one to one with Niall from the start was excellent and he kept me advised all the way to a successful conclusion.”
