Road traffic accidents are some of the most common personal injury* cases we deal with at MyCase Solicitors, as such, this is an area in which we have a wealth of knowledge and experience. Road traffic accidents are, unfortunately, a common occurrence in Ireland and if you have suffered injury because of a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to receive compensation.
After an accident, it is vital that you get the details of the driver who has caused the accident and that you contact the Gardai immediately, even for minor collisions. Of course, you must also seek medical assistance for any injuries sustained and you should also report the incident to your insurance company. By following these steps, you are more likely to be successful in your claim application.
Provided you are not the driver at fault, anyone who has suffered injury due to a road traffic accident can make a claim, this includes:
If you have suffered an injury caused by an uninsured driver, you can still make a claim for compensation through the Motor Insurers Bureau of Ireland (MIBI). These cases are often more complex than regular road traffic accident claims*, but with our guidance and support, you can still receive your maximum entitlement for the injuries you have sustained.
