Personal Injury Claims FAQ
In the event that a person is involved in an accident and injured by no fault of their own they may be eligible to pursue a personal injury claim*. There are numerous types of personal injury claims* which include road traffic accidents, work injury accidents, medical negligence, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and more.
If you are involved in an accident you are probably focusing on your wellness and recovery before thinking of making a personal injury claim*. It is important to know and understand that in Ireland there is a statute of limitations for personal injury claims*. If you are looking to make a claim it must be started within two years of the accident that caused your injuries. After the two year period you would be unable to make a claim.
Of course there are exemptions that you may seek for the two-year statute of limitations. It would be in your best interest to speak to a personal injury solicitor if you have any questions regarding making a claim.
After you have spoken to a personal injury solicitor, the next step is to submit an application to the injuries board so that you can receive an assessment of your claim.
The length of time your claim takes will depend on multiple factors. These factors include the severity of your injuries, insurance, the Injuries Board, assessment, and legal proceedings.
*In contentious business a Solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement.
