Accident at work

McGrath Mullan LLP was instructed by a client who had been involved in an accident while at work. The client who was working in the bar industry unfortunately suffered a bad injury to their foot as a result of a beer keg falling on it.

We advised the client in relation to their right to mount a personal injuries claim and we wrote to the client’s employer in this regard.

The firm made an application to the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB) on behalf of the client and the insurers of our client’s employer consented to the matter being assessed by PIAB. PIAB issued an assessment which included an assessment of general damages for “pain and suffering” in excess of €60,000.00. McGrath Mullan LLP advised the client that we felt the figure, although substantial, was not enough and we advised the client to reject the assessment which had been accepted by the insurance company of the client’s employers. The client took the advice of McGrath Mullan LLP and rejected the PIAB assessment. PIAB then issued its authorisation, on the basis of which, McGrath Mullan LLP issued High Court proceedings on behalf of our client.

We subsequently arranged settlement discussions and settled our client’s case for a figure in excess of €85,000.00. The client was very happy that they had taken the advices of McGrath Mullan LLP in rejecting the PIAB assessment and was delighted with the settlement outcome.

If you have been injured through someone’s negligence and think you may be entitled to compensation, McGrath Mullan LLP will be able to advise you as to your rights.* Please feel free to contact us on 01-8735012 or at
