One of the most common causes of *personal injury litigation in Ireland is *road traffic accidents.
We have vast experience in all aspects of *road traffic accident claims and can advise you on your entitlement to compensation for *personal injury and any other losses including medical expenses, car hire, repairs, policy excess, depreciation, loss of earnings and any other out of pocket expenses or losses incurred.
*If you have been involved in a road traffic accident and have suffered an injury or had your vehicle damaged you may be entitled to claim compensation. If the driver of the other vehicle or indeed the vehicle in which you were a passenger is uninsured you may still be able to claim compensation from the Motor Insurers’ Bureau of Ireland.
