Personal injury claims in Ireland are a means for people who have been involved in accidents which were not their fault to claim recompense for the pain and suffering they experienced. More importantly, personal injury claims in Ireland may provide the victim with the financial ability to support their family should they be unable to work because of their injuries, or cover the cost of ongoing medical expenses.
Examples of where personal injury claims may be sought would include after a car crash or other road traffic accident, when you have sustained an injury at work through the negligence of an employer, or where you have slipped on any icy step outside a pub or shop where the proprietor had an obligation to maintain safe access. There are many other instances too where a lack of care may be evident and you have suffered an injury which leads to a personal injury claim. Ireland has a very structured and successful system to ensure victims of negligence receive a fair and adequate amount of compensation, and it is in place for every citizen to use.
Medical support is essential and will help your personal injury claim
If you have been involved in an accident and suffered physical or psychological injury, your primary consideration must be to seek medical advice before legal advice from a solicitor. No amount of money can compensate for a long term health issue that could have been prevented by rapid medical attention. Even when you think that your injuries are minor attendance at a hospital or doctors surgery will be in your best interest should you wish to proceed with a personal injury claim.

Ireland has laws which allow you to claim compensation within two years of your accident, and although there is no need to rush to the phone and ring a solicitor it should be considered once you have received adequate medical attention.
