Personal Injury Claims

Personal Injury Claims

A Personal Injury claim for compensation can often be complex and is best submitted with the assistance of a specialist personal injury claims solicitor. Acting as your personal injury claims solicitor Mellotte O’Carroll can provide you with information on:

1. Whether you should make a personal injury claim,
2. When you need to make a claim,
3. How much it will cost.

We have experienced personal injury solicitors available to review your claim and advise on the appropriate action.

Unfortunately, misfortune strikes when we least expect it. Whether you have been involved in a car crash, workplace accident, or had an accident in a public place either at home or abroad, we can help you.

In a personal injury claim damages may be awarded for pain and suffering resulting from any accident. Damages may also be awarded for loss in the quality of your life as well as for any past, current and/or future loss of earnings. Damages can also be awarded for the cost of medical care, including home care both past, present and future as well as expenses.

If you have been involved in a road traffic accident, which was not your fault, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim immediately. Your Solicitor can assist you in obtaining the various expert reports necessary.

If, however, you are a passenger, involved in an accident your personal injury claim would be made against either the driver of the vehicle you were travelling with or the third party driver or in some cases both.

In any personal injury case, monetary damages are paid to the injured person by the person or company who is found to be legally responsible for the accident which is normally the defendant or his/her insurance company. An award for damages can be agreed upon after a negotiated settlement between all parties, their insurance companies, and your solicitor. Damages may be ordered by a judge or jury following a court trial.
