FAQ’S


(a) Do I have a claim?

As a general rule if you have had an accident within the last two years that was not your fault, you could be entitled to compensation.  Every case is different so you should contact us today in order that we can review the facts of your case and advise you on whether or not you have a claim.

(b)    What can I claim for?

You can claim for all losses suffered by you as a result of the accident, these losses can include your injuries, loss of earnings, damage to property and other expenses.  For a rough indication of the value of your claim you should see the Compensation Calculator

(c)    How quickly should I make my claim?

If you believe that you are entitled to make a claim for compensation then you should contact us today as you have to start your claim within the time limit set down by the Statute of Limitations.  As a general rule in a claim for compensation for personal injuries arising out of an accident the claim for compensation must be started within two years from the date of the accident.

(d)    What should I do at the scene of the accident?

Taking the following steps immediately after any accident can help prove any claim for compensation that may be made later on.

  • Check for injuries at the scene and call an ambulance if required
  • Check for witnesses and get their name, address and contact telephone number.
  • Exchange details with the other party before you leave the scene.  You should obtain their name, address and if a vehicle is involved you should get the registration number and insurance details.
  • Do not admit liability.
  • If you have been involved in a Road Traffic Accident you should inform An Garda Siochana as soon as possible after the accident.
  • Take photographs of the scene.
  • Seek medical attention for any injury sustained as soon as possible after the accident.
  • Notify your insurance company of the accident.
  • Keeps details of your losses.
  • Contact VP McMullin Solicitors for advice.  We will be happy to arrange a no obligation meeting with one of our Personal Injury Solicitors to discuss your case.

(e)    Are there any cancellation fees?

If we advise you that you are unlikely to win your claim then we will decline your case and no legal fees will be payable.  However if you instruct us to bring a claim on your behalf but decide at a later date not to continue with your claim then you may have to pay for the work done to date.

(f)    How much compensation will I get?

You will be awarded compensation if your claim is successful.  Until we know the details of your claim it is impossible to put a value on same, however for a rough indication of the value of your claim you should see the Compensation Calculator

(g)    How long will my case take?

Much will depend on the nature of your injuries and the Defendant’s attitude to your claim.  At best your compensation claim will be concluded within 6 months although this may vary and your claim could take longer if your injuries are more serious or the Defendant decides to contest your claim and Court proceedings have to be issued.

(h)    What happens if I lose my case?

If you make a claim for compensation before the Courts and do not win then you may have to pay the costs of the other side and our outlay.  However, we will not advise you to pursue a claim unless we feel that there is a good probability of your case being successful.

(i)    What is the Injuries Board?

The Injuries Board was set up by the government in 2004 to assess claims for compensation for anyone who has been in accident and suffered an injury.  Before commencing Court proceedings in Ireland, all claims for compensation (with the exception of medical negligence claims) must be submitted to the Injuries Board.  The Injuries Board will only deal with claims where there is no dispute on liability and provided the Defendant(s) agree the Injuries Board will make an assessment of damages without the necessity of going to Court.  In the event the Defendant(s) do not agree to the Injuries Board dealing with the case then the Injuries Board will not assess your claim and you will have the option to go to Court.  If the Injuries Board makes an assessment, either party may reject the assessment and choose instead to go to Court.
