Personal Injury Solicitors in Dublin - Claims Process
Damages including those for pain and suffering in personal injury cases is assessed through InjuriesBoard.ie, the Independent Government body formally referred to as the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB).
Car accidents, public liability and work accident cases are usually submitted to InjuriesBoard.ie for assessment. The party responsible for the injury however, must consent to the assessment of compensation by the Injuries Board in order for this process to be completed.
Joseph McNally Injury Solicitors Dublin can assist you with the injuries claim process and in referring the matter to the Courts in circumstances where;
- The respondent denies liability or does not consent to assessment.
- Either party does not accept the award offered by injuriesboard.ie
- The matter is rejected by InjuriesBoard.ie.
When you issue a case through injuriesboard.ie, you receive an authorisation from them. You may not be satisfied with the assessment of your personal injuries claim or the Board may not deal with the matter. In those circumstances, you have six months to issue Court proceedings, from the date you receive the authorisation. If you have already issued a claim and obtained an assessment from injuriesboard.ie, you should be sure that this adequately compensates you.
Types of Personal Injury Claim:
Road accident cases
Whether you are driver, passenger, pedestrian or other, car accidents can be very stressful and traumatic for all those involved. Human error is the main cause of road accidents, causing the death of over 1.2million people every year according to the World Health Organisation. If you have been in a road accident it is important to find out the proper process to follow. Injuries acquired during accidents are seldom felt to their full extent immediately after the accident, therefore it is important to seek medical attention straight away, even if your injury is not serious. This not only provides medical evidence that can be invaluable in your case, but also provides the opportunity to seek medical assistance and treatment for injuries that you may not have noticed immediately.
In Ireland all drivers are legally obliged to carry third party insurance. This means the driver’s insurance is responsible to pay for any injuries to another party – even the driver’s own passengers. You may be eligible to contact the Motor Insurer’s Bureau of Ireland (MIBI) if you are injured by a driver who does not carry third party insurance. It is important to telephone the Gardai immediately after the accident and file a report, whether you think you have been injured or not. It is also important to file your injury as quickly as possible as you only have a certain amount of time to do so. Personal injury solicitors Dublin can assist with accident cases and give you a guide on the timelines.
No Win No Fee Explained
No Win No Fee refers to the practice whereby, unless Solicitors win your case, they do not charge for their services. The idea behind this practice is that, regardless of their financial situation, claimants have the power to pursue a claim.
If and when your claim is successful, then standard legal charges will apply.
No Win No Fee in Dublin
“No win no fee” is a practice and phrase that is well known in Courtrooms and Legal Offices in Ireland.
From private homes to supermarkets, these types of injuries can occur almost anywhere. Slips and falls are a normal part of life in many instances. Perhaps we aren’t looking where we are going or simply trip over a curb. However, trips and falls that occur due to hazardous conditions can happen as well. If you have suffered an injury in these circumstances you may entitled to compensation as long as the slip or fall occurred as a result of the negligence of someone else.
Trip, slip and fall accidents
The following information may be useful in determining whether you are entitled to pursue the matter:
-The hazardous condition was caused by the property owner or employee.
-The employee or owner should have been aware of the hazardous condition and did not correct it.
-The owner failed to prevent the accident by drawing attention to the hazardous area or marking the area with a warning sign.
Sometimes just one of these conditions is enough to make a successful injury claim with the aid of personal injury solicitors. It is important to file your injury as quickly as possible as slip and fall victims only have a certain amount of time to do so.
