Employers Liability & Injury at Work *

At Cantillons Solicitors we advise on all aspects of employers liability and injury at work claims.

If you have been injured during the course of your employment we are in a position to advise you as to whether or not you can successfully claim compensation from your employer.    We will assist in the provision of advice in relation to such claims.

We will assist in the completion of Injuries Board application form.

We will advise as to whether or not an award from the Injuries Board should be accepted or rejected.

We will advise and assist in the bringing of claims for injuries in the Courts.

The law provides that actions for injuries must be taken within certain time limits. It is safer to assume that the time limit is shorter rather than longer.  If the action is not taken within the prescribed time limit then it may not be taken at all. Generally speaking the time limit is two years from the date of injury, although sometimes it may be possible that there may be shorter or longer time limits applicable.    

We advise that our team be contacted as soon as possible if you have sustained an Injury.

We have obtained, for our clients, some of the highest awards that have been made in Ireland in each of the decades since the Firm was founded, that is in the 1980s, 1990, 2000s and the current decade. We have obtained for our clients the largest awards.
