Whiplash Injury Compensation* Lawyers, Donegal
Whiplash injuries can occur under a variety of circumstances, but typically are the result of a car, bus or taxi accident. Such injuries can significantly impact your mobility and, as a result, your ability to work, care for your children or carry out basic everyday tasks.
How long does it take to make a whiplash claim*?
How long a Personal Injury whiplash claim* might take depends on several factors. If the other party admits liability, the process may be quicker, but if liability is contested, the process can be time-consuming. Generally, after a claim* has been submitted to the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB), on average, it takes seven months from that date. However, when the other party does not agree to take part in the PIAB process, it can take longer.
Can I make a claim for whiplash compensation* if the accident was my fault?
If the accident was at least partially the fault of another party, it might be possible to bring a claim* for compensation* following a whiplash injury. The level of your contributory negligence will reduce the value of your claim. In circumstances where you contributed to the accident, you may be able to bring a claim*; however, it’s important to note that if the accident was entirely your fault, you cannot bring a claim*.
