Compensation for assault at work

The firm received instructions from a client who suffered personal injuries as a result of an assault by a work colleague while at work.

We made an application to the Injuries Board on behalf of our client and the insurance company acting for the respondents declined to have the claim assessed by the Injuries Board. The Injuries Board issued its authorisation which then allowed our client to take court proceedings.

We received instructions from the client to issue court proceedings. The proceedings were issued and the defendants delivered a full defence to the proceedings. However, subsequent to the delivery of the defence, the solicitors acting on behalf of the defendants requested a settlement meeting.

We met with the defendants’ legal team in the Four Courts and following negotiations our client’s claim was settled for €50,000.00 plus costs.
