If you have ever been involved in an accident you understand just how stressful of a time this may be. Seeking advice from experienced professionals is the best route to take after an accident. A personal injury claim* enables you to recover due compensation if you’ve experienced injury or loss due to another person’s negligence. Every personal injury claim* is different and there are various factors that can impact the compensation the victim of an accident receives.
Below are the most common types of personal injury claims* in Dublin and Naas:
1. Road Traffic Accident Claims
A road traffic accident claim occurs when an individual is injured in an accident on the road. This can include a collision between two vehicles or collisions with pedestrians, cyclists, and motorbikes. Road traffic accidents can also result from a range of other causes like poorly maintained roads, or hazards in the roadway. In this case, a road traffic accident claim would be against a party like the Highway Agency or the party responsible for the hazards in the roadway.
Road traffic accidents often cause serious, long-lasting injuries to the victim(s) making it imperative that there is compensation available. A personal injury claim* can give you the best chance to recover fully without having to worry about how you’ll pay medical bills or deal with loss of income.
2. Medical Negligence Claims
Medical negligence describes a situation in which a patient is injured due to an error made by their doctor, medical professional, or practitioner. There are several different forms of medical negligence that can occur including surgical errors, misdiagnosis, and hospital negligence. If a person has suffered an injury due to medical negligence, they may be entitled to file a medical negligence claim and recover compensation.
To be considered eligible for a claim, the injured individual must be able to prove that there was an existing doctor-patient relationship and that the doctor was negligent in their actions. A personal injury solicitor in Dublin and Naas would be able to assist a victim by proving the medical professional’s negligence.
3. Work Accident Claims
Workplace accidents, work accidents, or accidents at work all refer to an injury that happens on a premise that as an employee you are required to be at during a work day. Under the law in Ireland, an employer must take measures to protect their employees’ health and safety. If an employer fails to do so and it results in injury to an employee, the employee may be eligible to make a work accident claim.
Common work accident claims include injury due to dangerous machinery, falling objects, slip and fall, ladder accidents, and more. It is important to maintain that the environment was hazardous or unfit for employees to work in, as well as understanding that filing a work accident claim against an employer is a serious matter.
