Road Traffic Accidents
Accidents on Ireland’s roads are unfortunately common. In some situations, they are caused by another party’s wrongdoing (for example, because someone was driving dangerously) and give rise to compensation claims*. Road traffic accident claims* range from minor strains and sprains to serious head injuries and fatalities. However, whiplash is one of the most common injuries.

What Legal Action Can I Take Following a Road Accident?
If you believe another party is responsible, our Personal Injury* Solicitors can advise you as to whether you could be entitled to compensation. We will meet with you and listen carefully to what happened so that we can assess the strength of your case.
If we believe you have a viable claim, we will explain the law and process to you clearly and advise on how much you could be awarded. We will ask you to provide as much evidence as possible about the accident and your injuries, including photographs of the scene, names and contact details of any witnesses, medical notes, medical treatment costs and other expenses you have incurred. We will then prepare your claim, with the support of medical, accident reconstruction and other experts where necessary, and ensure it follows the correct Injuries Board and court processes.
What Can I Claim Compensation* For?
An award is not just designed to compensate for your physical pain and suffering. It also aims to help you recover all financial losses (both past and future) related to your injuries. This includes costs for medical treatment, ongoing care, loss of earnings and any adaptations made to your home or vehicle. Further, you can also gain compensation* for damage caused to your vehicle or other property.
When Should I Get Legal Advice?
You should seek specialist legal advice as soon as you feel well enough after the accident. It is important to do this promptly so that the events are fresh in your memory (and those of any witnesses) and to ensure your claim is not time-barred. A two-year time limit applies to most Personal Injury* cases.
