Public Accident Claims

You may have been out in a public place, and acting normally when through no fault of your own suffer an accident and injury.

We can quickly and honestly advise as to whether you may bring a claim for compensation.

It is sometimes the case that an accident involving a trip, or slip, in a public place causing you to fall can give rise to a claim. We can quickly source professional help from consulting engineers to assist in determining whether you may pursue a personal injury claim.

We can assist you during the personal injury claim, either by acting for you directly in discussions with the other party’s insurance company, or representing you with an application to the Personal Injuries Assessment Board.

    Public Accident Claims : Your Top Questions Answered

    Q
    How long can a personal injury claim take?
    AYour claim length will depend on a number of factors such as; your type of injuries, the insurance company your dealing with, your PIAB application, the assessment and then whether you move on to legal proceedings.
    Q
    How much compensation will I be entitled to?
    AThat figure is hard to immediately determine. The book of quantum can help to give you some indication but the other factors that will be taken into consideration are:

    • Liability: who was at fault for the accident.
    • Injuries: the severity of the injuries
    • Expenses: all of the bills that were paid.
    Q
    Will my claim go to court?
    A Every case is different. In the majority of personal injury cases, the person making the claim will not end up in a courtroom.

    It is possible that the person at fault will seek to settle outside of court and your case will be settled in a meeting attended by you, your solicitor, and barrister to negotiate your settlement.

    It is entirely up to you whether to accept the settlement offered. If you do not accept then it will move to a court hearing where a judge will decide how much your settlement will be.
