Whiplash and other injury claims
Background Personal Injury and car accident injuries
If you have been injured, hurt, or harmed in a car accident that was not your fault then you may be entitled to claim compensation from the party that caused the accident. Medical Negligence Everyone in the Medical profession in Ireland has what is known as a “Duty of Care” to the people that they treat, or they look after. If you are harmed or hurt when a third party fails to treat or look after you according to a “Duty of Care” then you may be entitled to claim damages for Medical Negligence from the same third party.
