The Process of Personal Injury Assessment
Damages including those for pain and suffering in personal injury matters is assessed through InjuriesBoard.ie, the Independent Government body formally referred to as the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB).
Road traffic accidents, public liability and workplace accidents must be submitted to InjuriesBoard.ie for assessment. The party responsible for the injury however, must consent to the assessment of compensation by InjuriesBoard.ie in order for this process to be completed.
Joseph McNally Solicitors can assist you with the InjuriesBoard.ie application 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 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.
Bicycle accident cases
Bicycle accident cases are treated the same way as other road traffic accident claims. If you can prove that you sustained an injury as the result of another person’s negligence, you could have a lawsuit on your hands. Factors such as the severity of your injuries, how permanent their nature and what impact the accident has had on your life will determine how much your claim could be worth.
Bicycle accident cases present unique challenges because they often involve serious physical injuries, because the laws regulating the use of bicycles are different than the laws regulating motor vehicles, and because the insurance coverage issues are different than in motor vehicle accident cases.
Most bicycle accident cases are based on the legal cause of action called “negligence.” Simply put, every person and business owes a duty to use reasonable care. If a person or business fails to use reasonable care, then they have acted negligently. If that negligence injures someone, the injured person has a civil cause of action against the negligent party for money damages.
Motorcycle and bicycle accident cases can be quite complex. These claims may also involve issues regarding unsafe products , including the negligent product design or manufacture of bicycles, motorcycles, and other vehicles involved in the accident. As such, these cases must be looked at very carefully. The law provides a limited amount of time in which victims can seek compensation for their injuries, but having a motorcycle accident lawyer or bicycle injury attorney on your side makes it more likely that you’ll receive your rightful compensation.
We understand the sport and the dangers associated with cycling. In calling us, you will see the dedication of our lawyers and staff is unparalleled. We are diligent in pursuit of bicycle accident claims and we are committed to serving our clients with the absolute highest quality legal representation available.
If you were injured as a biker, it is important to contact an experienced attorney who can effectively assert your rights in court. Your case may be more challenging and requires an attorney skilled in bicycle accident claims.
You may have done everything right on your bike ride, including wearing a helmet. Even so, if a negligent car driver pulled out in front of you or made a turn without looking, there is little you could have done to avoid a crash. We treat bicycle accident claims with the same urgency and thoroughness with which we treat car accident and truck accident claims. We will go to great lengths to investigate the crash, build a case and recover the compensation you need to make ends meet while recovering from your injuries.
