Your solicitor will advise whether or not you can pursue a particular claim. We provide you with a free assessment of your case. Before entering the claims process, it is important to note that all claims must have three essential features:
- Another person or organisation must have been negligent (at fault)
- The other person or organisation must have the means to pay a sum in damages (often through their liability insurers)
- In the Republic of Ireland, the accident must have occurred within the last two years for those aged 18 and over. For minors, under 18 a claim can be lodged within two years from their 18th birthday.
Note: If you were to blame for the accident it will not generally be possible to claim compensation.
