What steps should I take when making a personal injuries claim?

When you have sustained a personal injury due to the carelessness or negligence or another person it is very crucial that you seek immediate medical attention from the emergency department at your nearest hospital or your GP. The next step is to contact one of our experienced Personal Injuries Solicitors who will guide you through the process of making a claim and seeking compensation.  We will process your case professionally and efficiently and we will keep you updated on the progress of your case continuously.

We will submit your application, along with your medical report, to the Personal Injuries Board. The Personal Injuries Board is an Independent Body that was established to deal with Personal Injuries claims. In cases where the Personal Injuries Board does not make an assessment or where you reject the assessment amount, the Injuries Board will issue an authorisation permitting you to proceed to Court. We will then advise you on the procedure involved in bringing a case before the Courts which may involve instructing medical experts to establish the extent of your injuries. We may also have to engage specialists to investigate the place of the accident/equipment and advise on your future loss of earning. We work with many of these outstanding experts on a daily basis.
