Being involved in a road traffic accident, an accident at work or in a public place can mean personal injuries, loss of earnings and medical expenses. Taking legal cases against insurance companies, employers and local authorities can often be a stressful procedure. It is important that at the very outset you hire a Personal Injuries Solicitor who is experienced in handling and winning these types of cases.
The law relating to personal injury claims has become quite complex over the past few years. While the introduction of the injuriesboard.ie aimed to simplify personal injury claims in fact the opposite has happened. In many cases the injuries board process has simply delayed straight forward cases being concluded.
As an experienced Personal Injuries Solicitor I have handled many different types of claims. I know the importance of moving quickly when instructed particularly to ensure that relevant evidence is retained and not destroyed which can have a significant bearing on the outcome of a case. For example, it someone slips and falls in a supermarket on a wet floor there usually is CCTV footage of that incident but if the footage is not requested within a few days of the accident it can often be destroyed by the supermarket. Therefore it is important that an immediate Data Protection Act request is made of the supermarket to make sure that the footage is retained so that it can be later used in evidence to support the injured victim’s version of events.
As an experienced Personal Injury Solicitors who specialises in personal injury claims I am aware of the necessary procedures to preserve and maintain evidence that is crucial to winning a case. Failure to act properly and take the appropriate steps to make sure that this evidence is not destroyed can mean the difference between winning and losing a case.
It is important that you use a Personal Injury Solicitor with a track record of handling hundreds of different types of cases and winning them for clients rather than using a generalist Solicitor.
