Claims For Injuries Suffered Abroad*
Being involved in an accident can be a very stressful and emotional time. When this accident occurs abroad, whether it’s a road traffic accident, a “Slip, Trip, and Fall” accident, or any other type of personal injury*, there is a range of additional complications and unknowns to deal with. You might need immediate care in an overseas medical institution where medical insurance systems, procedure and even language can present huge challenges. You may have incurred physical and emotional injury* as a result of the accident overseas, or may be suffering from ongoing medical or dietary problems related to the overseas accident. It may well be the case that you have to undergo medical treatment both within Ireland and abroad which at the best of times is expensive and stressful.
Every case is highly complex so it is important to get the best advice from experts both in Ireland and in the territory where you suffered your injury* before deciding on whether to pursue a claim for compensation or not. You will also need experts to investigate whether your case could and should be processed in Ireland as opposed to abroad.
We can address the main issues that arise for clients who wish to know if they have a strong enough travel related injury* claim case or not. These issues are often as follows-
- Can I prove that the other party was responsible for my accident?
- What information do I have to give my Solicitor at the start of my case?
- How long will it take for my case to be processed?
- Can my case be heard in Ireland, even if I suffered the injury* abroad, and should I exercise this right?
- Do I have to pay my Solicitor fees up front before he will take the case?
- Who is going to cover the costs of my medical reports and other expenses while my case is ongoing?
At Moloney & Company Solicitors we can answer all of these questions quickly and in straightforward language.
