If you have suffered an injury as a result of an accident that was someone else’s fault, you can pursue a claim for compensation. Our solicitors will help recover personal injury compensation for your physical, psychological and financial losses.
The injuries could, for example, result from:
- a motorcycle accident
- a car accident
- an accident at work
- an accident in a public place
- an aviation accident
- an accident on board a ferry at sea
- a farm accident
- an accident in a hospital.
We have dealt with claims over many years in relation to all of the above types of cases. If you have suffered an accident in Ireland, please don’t hesitate to contact our Personal Injury Solicitor Helen Coughlan for an initial chat.
Since 2004 all claims must be processed through the Irish Injuries Board. Once we have obtained the necessary medical reports, we will submit your personal injury claim to the Injuries Board on your behalf. The Injuries Board will then notify the other side of the application. The other side has the option of consenting or declining the Injuries Board assessment procedure. If they decline, we will then issue court proceedings for compensation for your injuries, loss, damage and expense.
If the other side consent to the Injuries Board assessment, then the Injuries Board will consider the medical reports given, and may obtain their own medical report. It will then assess how much they think the claim is worth, usually within 9 – 15 months. The Injuries Board assessment can be accepted or declined by either party. If it is accepted by both sides, that is the end of the matter. However, if either you or the other side does not accept the assessment, then the case can be brought to court.
