Personal Injury Litigation*
Our personal injury department offers advice in relation to personal injury claims arising from a broad spectrum of circumstances such as road traffic collisions, accidents at work, accidents in public places and accidents whilst on holiday. As an All-Ireland practice, we have specific experience in dealing with claims for clients involved in accidents in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland and we are able to utilise our knowledge of the law in both jurisdictions to ensure that our clients pursue their claims in the appropriate jurisdiction.
We recognise that suffering an injury or developing illness can have a significant impact on the life of the person affected and for those who are close to them. The firm’s solicitors apply their knowledge and expertise in order to secure the highest level of compensation possible. As a firm, we recognise that those who have suffered injury may be apprehensive about bringing a personal injury claim and our efficient and proactive service is focused on putting our clients’ minds at rest throughout the process.
Our assessment of any claim takes into account, not only the appropriate level of compensation for the injuries suffered, but also additional factors such as loss of earnings and the cost of medical treatment that may be necessary to help our clients to make a full recovery from their injuries as quickly as possible. We deal with a wide range of personal injury claims ranging from those involving relatively minor injuries to those where our clients have suffered catastrophic and life changing injuries requiring the provision of additional care and equipment to enable our clients to keep the adverse impact on their daily lives to a minimum.
All personal injury claims in the Republic of Ireland must be submitted to InjuriesBoard.ie (formerly known as the Personal Injuries Assessment Board). InjuriesBoard.ie is a statutory body set up to provide an independent assessment of compensation in personal injury claims.
It is worthwhile instructing a solicitor to assist you with your claim given that the Injuriesboard.ie process has strict criteria and deadlines. F.V. Harty & Co. is also well placed to advise you if the assessment of compensation is fair. Our experienced solicitors will ensure that your claim is submitted correctly with sufficient documentation to support the claim and will continue to provide you with professional advice and assistance throughout the process.
Our specialist team is on hand to offer advice in relation to all types of personal injury claims including the following:
- Road traffic collisions
- Accidents at work
- Work related illnesses & diseases including asbestos related diseases and dermatitis
- Catastrophic injury claims
- Accidents abroad and whilst on package holidays
- Hearing loss claims
- Criminal injury compensation claims
- Claims arising from defective products
We offer a free initial consultation to all our clients at which we will provide an assessment of the likely outcome, what is involved, an estimate of how long the process will take and any potential costs.
*In contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement.
