If you’ve suffered an accident through no fault of your own, then you may be entitled to receive compensation.
Our team of dedicated personal injuries solicitors are ready to listen, understand and draw upon every possible resource available to them to make sure that the injuries you’ve suffered aren’t ignored and that you receive the compensation you deserve.
Types of personal injuries
We have experience in dealing with claims such as:
When to make a Personal Injury Claim
Accidents can have serious consequences – the impact of which can last for months, years, or even for the rest of your life. Medical bills can pile up quickly, time off work can reduce your income, and the injuries themselves can impact your quality of life. That’s why compensation is often necessary to recover both physically and financially from an accident.
However, it’s important that you initiate your claim as soon as possible. Generally speaking, personal injury claims must be made within 2 years from the date of your accident.
So, if you’ve been involved in a road collision, an accident at work, or have suffered any other injury (through no fault of your own) in the last 2 years, call our team of solicitors in Dublin O’Brien Murphy for an initial consultation.
From gathering evidence and interviewing witnesses to negotiating settlements and representing your interests in court – we’ll handle every aspect of the process. Our vast experience in dealing with the various steps in the process and our excellent relationship with other lawyers and insurance companies, will also ensure the best possible outcome to your claim.
Step 1 – Talk to Us
The first step is to call our experienced team of personal injuries solicitors. We’ll provide practical and impartial advice, making the experience as informative and as straight forward as possible. At this stage in the process, we will usually ask for the following information to ensure a successful claim:
Step 2 – Medical Report
Most personal injuries claims will require a medical report from either your GP or the Doctor who treated you after your accident. A medical report confirms that an injury has been sustained and that it is consistent with your accident.
Step 3 – The Personal Injuries Assessment Board
Most personal injuries claims must first be submitted to the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB). Once an application has been submitted, PIAB will contact the person you are taking that claim against with a view to resolving the matter there and then.
O’Brien Murphy Solicitors can help make this step easy and stress free. We will complete and send the application on your behalf and represent your interests at all times.
Step 4 – Court Proceedings
If the person you are taking the claim against declines to have it dealt with by PIAB, or PIAB themselves decide not to assess the claim, you can then bring court proceedings. This prospect often seems daunting and insurmountable, but we can assure that it is not.
We understand that the decision to initiate legal action can be quite intimidating, but you will be doing so in knowledge that we will be there to represent and guide you through process – every step of the way. We will fight for a just and fair outcome no matter how difficult or complex the case.
Determining if you need a solicitor
If you’ve suffered an injury through no fault of your own, seeking the advice of a professional and experienced solicitor is in your best interests. Our experience has shown that, after an injury, victims are regularly pressured into accepting a fast and often unjust settlement. We’re here to make sure that doesn’t happen. Our experienced personal injuries solicitors are there to secure the compensation you are entitled to.
Moreover, our team of experienced personal injuries solicitors are extremely conscious of the impact an accident can have. That’s why we’ll work at a pace you are comfortable with in a sensitive, relaxed and transparent manner.
