The process of Personal Injury accident claims for Injuries

All Personal injury claims in Ireland, but not Medical Negligence claims go through the Injuries Boards (PIAB Personal Injuries Assessment Board) and you must submit their form an application for assessment and your medical professional, either your GP’s or hospital’s medical assessment form. The Injuries Boards (PIAB) was set up some years ago to both regulate personal injury claims by trying to both standardise payouts and also to put a handle on the cost of making accident claims by not making it necessary to have personal injury solicitors Dublin on board at this stage. That is all well and good but there are two major areas of danger that you should be aware off;

A minor error in the filing of the application for assessment could invalidate your personal injury claim. For example the incorrect name of the insurance company who will represent the party who you hold responsible for your personal injury in the accident, or even its address could have your claim invalidated many months after it was filed. As the Statute of Limitations has a time limit of two years from the accident, except for minors who have not yet achieved their eighteenth birthday this delay could indeed be very costly for you indeed.

As indicated in 1 above many months will pass before the Injuries Boards issues their recommendation for you to accept or reject and vital evidence may no longer be available to you. This could include vital witnesses to the claim in Ireland who may no longer recall the events of some months passed or who may have moved on. This could put your injury claim in jeopardy and it is therefore better that you bring a personal injury solicitor and co solicitors on board from the very beginning.

Once the Injuries Boards has given their personal injuries assessment neither yourself or the Insurance Company are obliged to accept their recommendation. You can either accept or reject it as you may consider the recommendation as too low. The insurance company may think it is too high and the result is that you will need a personal injury solicitor to negotiate a settlement of your injuries claim with the Insurance Company. If that fails and less than 5% of all negotiations fail then your injury claim in Ireland will have to go to court for settlement. You can get more information on the Citizens Advice bureau on the Personal Injury Claims process.

So do not hesitate and call 01 524 0606 now for your consultation or fill in the contact form with your name and telephone number and we will get back to you shortly or at your convenience.

The Injuries Boards also publish what is called a “Book of Quantum” a type of claim calculator, which tries to evaluate the worth of a particular injury. Although it does not deal with the severity of your injury it the Book of Quantum will put a value on for example a broken arm from a bicycle accident claim. This could also happen for an accident on holiday or for head injury in a car accident or any road traffic accidents. Your injury solicitors in giving you both legal advice and claims advice will be able to explain this in a consultation for a claim for personal injury. The Book of Quantum does not indicate a value on special damages. So do not hesitate and call 01 524 0606 now for your consultation or fill in the contact form with your name and telephone number and we will get back to you shortly or at your convenience.
When you are treated by a Medical professional you are entitled to expect a “Duty of Care” from that Medical professional who you hold responsible for your well being. It does not matter if that Medical professional is a Consultant or a Surgeon or a Doctor or a Nurse or a Psychologist, indeed some psychological injuries can come under this heading or a dentist or anyone else who treats you.

Medical Negligence claims do not go the Injuries Boards and can take much longer than Personal Injury claims. Your Personal Injury Solicitors will spell out the detail but the most important document that you will need is an expert opinion from a medical expert on the harm and the pain and suffering that you have experienced. This document can take time and expense to  get but your whole case of Medical Negligence will hinge on this document. You should note that the Statute of Limitations time limit for bringing a Medical negligence claim is also two years but two years from the date that you discovered or where made aware of a possible Medical Negligence claim.

There are many different types of personal injury but most of them can be categorised in the following headings;

  1. Road traffic Accidents mean accidents on the road such as car accidents involving cars, lorries, vans, buses, motor bikes, bicycles and pedestrians. As our roads have to cater for ever increasing traffic there are more and more road traffic accidents and we all may well be involved in a road traffic accident in our lives.
  2. Slips, Falls and Trips We have all encountered wet floors or worn carpets or uneven surfaces or pot holes that have sent us flying to the ground. All types of personal injuries can result as we certainly are not prepared to be ceremoniously dumped on the ground.
  3. Work injuries and accidents. Although Health and Safety legislation has made the work place a safer place accidents and injuries still happen. Faulty tools and machines and equipment have not gone away. Employees are still being asked to perform tasks where they have had no training or inadequate training and personal injuries still happen unfortunately.
  4. Holiday accidents and injuries. In a new environment and when relaxed things can go wrong through no fault of your own and a personal injury can totally spoil a well earned holiday
  5. Medical Negligence. Mistakes can happen even when the consequences might be dramatic. Misdiagnosis, wrong prescriptions, wrong doses, mistakes in surgery the list can go on forever

So whatever your category of personal injury a quick call to us or send us the completed form on the website and we will arrange a consultation at your convenience.

Often after suffering a personal injury in an accident, even if there is contributory negligence involved or after being harmed in a possible Medical Negligence case the first thing that comes to mind is although you want redress how will you be able to pay legal fees and legal costs for claims advice to your injury solicitors? In some cases it can stop the process in its tracks. Ask us to explain the various options available to you including an explanation of No Win No Fee agreements. Solicitors in Ireland are not allowed to advertise No win No Fee agreements but they are allowed to offer the product in consultation. No Win No Fee agreement, sometimes called No Win No Foal agreements or Contingency agreements makes you liable for legal fees only if your case is won. If you lose then you pay nothing.
