In June 2011, the team represented a twenty two year old young lady, Patricia Ingle from Limerick who sustained a profound brain injury as a result of an infection, contracted during the course of her employment at a pet store, which was subsequently mismanaged by the Mid Western Regional Hospital, Dooradoyle, Limerick and the Health Service Executive.
The Multi-million Euro structured settlement award exceeded the highest ever such award in a High Court Personal Injuries Action.
The structured settlement agreement with the Health Service Executive, which was made a Rule of Court and is listed to go before the Court once again in July 2013, allowing for payment of costs arising in relation to Ms. Ingles life time care, aids, equipment, appliances, therapies, accommodation and loss of earnings.Outside the Court, following the settlement, Ms. Ingle issued to the following statement:-
"I am so grateful for the legal assistance. Only for it I would still be imprisoned in a hospital room through no fault of my own. I would like to thank my family, my friends and all who have supported me throughout the last three years especially all at Ernest J. Cantillon's firm of Solicitors, particularly Susie Elliott, for their work on my behalf."
