Liam Moloney, Solicitor, is a board member of PEOPIL which is the European Group for personal injury lawyers and through his associations and contacts he can source legal expertise in any country in Europe. This means that once you instruct Liam Moloney regarding your overseas claim, he can immediately get you the right advice and guide you on all of the above issues. If you have suffered an injury in Canada or the USA, he can do the same.
Under EU Law and European Conventions, if you have had an accident in a European country you can sometimes pursue your claim for compensation here in Ireland although the assessment of compensation may be based on the country where your accident occurred.
It is very important to immediately seek legal advice from someone who has experience in this area. Our firm is currently handling a number of serious personal injury cases for holiday makers injured in Europe. The types of cases we regularly deal with are road traffic accidents, slip and fall cases as a result of dangerous surfaces in hotels and restaurants, food poisoning claims against hotels and restaurants and claims against fun parks.
In many cases holiday makers also have the benefit of personal accident insurance. If you are in an accident one of the most important things to do is to make sure that you immediately notify your insurance company so that you comply with their notification requirements.
If you or a loved one has been involved in an overseas accident, please contact Liam Moloney, Solicitor, today so he can help and support you through the compensation process.
