MAKING A CLAIM
In order for a solicitor to advise you on whether you are eligible to seek a legal remedy the following information and details are necessary to provide:
A detailed and accurate description of the accident is required. Every detail memorable is necessary such as where it happened, how it happened, who was involved, what you were doing at the time and contact details of any witnesses that were there at the time.
Any medical reports carried out by a qualified medical practitioner and also a list of the personal injuries * which were suffered as a result of the serious injury *. If any Gardaí reports or statements were taken these should be requested.
A document of any expenses incurred since the accident. This document will be kept with regard to special damages.
LEGAL TIME LIMITS
The typical rule for all personal injury cases * is that a person has two years following the date of the accident or knowledge of the injury to bring forward legal proceedings from the date of when the accident occurred. The exceptions to this rule are if the person lacks the capability to make a claim themselves, a family member can then bring proceedings forward. The second exception is if a child suffers a serious injury *. The child then has two years to make a claim from their eighteenth birthday. All personal injury claims * must first be assessed by the Injuries Board to see who was liable for the accident. Some personal injury * cases may proceed to court while in some cases the party who was at fault will offer a settlement.
