If you have experienced a personal injury in a car accident due to someone else’s negligence, our car accident claims’ service enables you to pursue a legal remedy for your injuries, whether those injuries are physical or psychological or both.
By bringing a claim to our team of car injury solicitors, you will have the opportunity to recover:
With the thousands of cars, motorbikes and bicycles on the roads, unfortunately, it is inevitable that accidents will happen. As car injury solicitors, we can assist you in getting your vehicle repaired and back on the road as quickly as possible and help you in navigating your way through a personal car accident injury claim should the need arise.
Whether you are a driver, motorcyclist or cyclist, if you are struck by another vehicle and suffer injuries as a result, you may be entitled to recover compensation for those injuries.
For drivers of cars, the main injuries sustained in collisions are soft tissue injuries. Thankfully, for the most part, these injuries will resolve within a number of months but this is not always the case.
The most common injury sustained in a bike accident in Ireland is a broken bone or, indeed, multiple fractures. Please see our Motorcycle Accidents page for further info.
For a cyclist, a common injury is often a broken bone, particularly in the wrist, due to cyclists’ greater vulnerability on our roads.
If you are involved in a collision you should:
Note the details of the registration number of the other vehicle and the other driver’s insurance policy so that the insurance company can be contacted to report your car accident claim*.
Seek medical attention for the treatment of your injuries.
Call the Gardai to attend the scene of any road traffic accident so that they can ensure that the insurance details provided are correct.
Contact our specialist car accident claims team at any time for confidential, friendly advice.
Depending on the severity of injury and how clear-cut responsibility for the accident in question is, a resolution of an injury case can take anything from a number of months to three years. The cases that take longer to resolve are generally not delayed by the legal system but by the fact that it can take time for the extent and consequences of injuries to become clear.
Unfortunately, not all drivers are insured but this does not mean that you do not have an entitlement to claim. There is a sum contributed from all motor insurance policies to the Motor Insurers' Bureau which then steps into the role of an Insurer in circumstances where a vehicle is uninsured or untraced.
At Hussey Fraser, your personal injury solicitor is in a position to arrange the finance of medical report fees that will be required to prove an injury case.
In relation to medical bills that may be received for medical treatment, we ask that these be carefully kept so that we can make a full recovery of all of your medical expenses on the conclusion of your case.
As a member of the Law Society of Ireland, Hussey Fraser Solicitors are regulated by The Solicitors Advertising Regulations 2019. This preserves the right of a solicitor to advertise, but restricts certain forms of advertising such as 'No Win No Fee'.
No Win No Fee is a payment arrangement between an individual and a Solicitor whereby there are no legal fees payable to the Solicitor in the event that a personal injury claim is unsuccessful.
Thus the expression ‘No Win, No Fee’.
In the event that a claim is successful and compensation is awarded to an individual, a Solicitor's legal fees form a pre-agreed part of the settlement.
