If you have had a car accident, a road traffic accident or if your child has had an accident and has been injured as a result of the accident then you may have a personal injury claim* and may be entitled to be compensated for the injuries which you have suffered.
We at McCormack Solicitors will firstly examine your case, look at the facts and see if the injuries which you have suffered are as a result of the negligence of another party. If we believe that this is the case then we will advise you of the next steps in taking your claim*
We don’t take on every claim*. We will examine each claim* on the facts before us. Before deciding whether we are going to take on your claim* we will have discussed your claim* with you and we will have looked at the strength and weaknesses of your claim*. In some claims* it may be very obvious that another individual has caused your injury, however, in other claims* the Courts may feel that while an individual has been injured, they may have somewhat contributed to their own injuries and make a reduction in the full value of the claim because they believe that an individual has been contributory negligent. That is why it is important to talk to us.
Accidents at works claims*, accidents in a public place claims* and car accident claims* can be complex. Depending on what you initially tell us we may need to get other independent experts to look at your case such as a specialised engineer.
In general, you have two years from the date of the accident to take a claim*. After that you could be statute barred from taking your claim*. Statute barred means your time will have run out and you wouldn’t be allowed to bring your claim*. An exception to this is for children under the age of 18 years of age. Children need to have commenced their claim* within 2 years of their 18th birthday.
If you have any questions our specialised Personal Injury Claims team is here to help.
