At Ferrys Solicitors, we are expert Personal Injury Solicitors and can help you process your personal injury claim for all types of injuries. Personal Injury litigation typically deals with claims where you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, but it can also relate to many more specific types of personal injury claims.
Being involved in an accident is a traumatic event and at such time, you will need a personal injury lawyer who is well experienced in the area of personal injury litigation, and who can guide you through the process of litigation to get you the compensation you deserve in a fast, efficient and friendly manner.
All personal injury claims (with the exception of medical negligence claims) must in the first instance be referred to the Injuries Board. This can be a difficult process especially if you are not familiar with it. We will provide you with the assistance and guidance required in making this application and seek the best resolution for you and the compensation you deserve. If the matter is not resolved through the Injuries Board process we will make any subsequent applications to Court on your behalf. We will use our expertise to ensure you are properly compensated and make the process as simple as possible for you.
If you search for Irish solicitors online based on “No win no fee”, “nowinnofee” or “no fee litigation” you will find dozens of websites advertising on this basis. However, the Law Society of Ireland, who govern the correct practice among Irish Solicitors, have strict rules prohibiting advertising based on “No Win No Fee”. Most of the websites you find advertising in this way are in breach of the proper standards of the Law Society of Ireland, or are in fact claims harvesting websites.
These claims harvesting websites that advertise based on no win no fee litigation, are not proper solicitor firms and may be operated outside of Ireland. So if you share the details of your personal injury claim with them, it may not be shared with a personal injury solicitor.
For more information on No Win No Fee Solicitors, please read our blog post here. Ferrys Solicitors are a Dublin based firm of solicitors who are fully registered with the Law Society of Ireland. To learn how we calculate our fees, please contact us today.
If you have been involved in an accident and wish to make a personal injuries claim, you must be within the allowed time period. This is defined by the Statute of Limitations for personal injury compensation claims in Ireland.
In most cases, you have two years from the date of the accident to make your claim or two years from the date of knowledge of the damages connected to the accident. If you are outside of this time, you will be barred by the Statute of Limitation Act from bringing your claim.
Exceptions to the two year rule
In several specific examples, there is an exception to the two year rule for personal injury claims. For example, for a minor the date of knowledge is when the minor turns eighteen years of age. A minor can also pursue a claim prior to their 18th birthday. Other exceptions include industrial diseases acquired over time and asbestos related injuries.
To learn if you can pursue your personal injury claim contact one of our personal injury solicitors now.
The amount of personal injury compensation you can be awarded depends on several factors. These include pain and suffering experienced, financial loss, how your lifestyle is effected after the accident and the seriousness of the injury. The compensation for your personal injury claim, known as general damages, will be awarded based on medical evidence.
If your claim goes beyond the Injuries Board, our team of personal injury solicitors will go through the claim fully with you and your witnesses before going to court.
