Personal Injury Solicitors: compassionate and effective legal representation.
At Malone Hegarty Solicitors LLP, we specialise in representing clients in accident and personal injury claims. We understand the impact that accidents and injuries, both psychological and physical, can have on our clients’ lives and are committed to providing compassionate and effective legal representation.
What is a personal injury claim?
Personal injury claims typically arise following an accident caused by someone else’s neglect, inattention, recklessness or intentional wrongdoing. These may be road traffic accidents, slip and fall accidents, workplace accidents or assault. However, injuries can also arise from using defective products or consuming contaminated food.
The impact of these types of events are manifold – pain, suffering and emotional distress to lost wages, medical expenses and a loss of quality of life.
The Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB)
In Ireland, personal injury claims are regulated by The Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB). All personal injury claims in Ireland are first assessed by PIAB (with the exception of medical negligence claims).
You do not need a solicitor to make a claim through PIAB. However, clients often find the process can be complex. It’s important that all relevant information is included in the Injuries Board applications, that you follow the correct process and that you provide the comprehensive information necessary to maximise your chances of success.
PIAB benefits our clients who may wish to consider an out-of-court settlement. Importantly, they provide an alternative to the lengthy and costly traditional legal process.
In the event that your claim is refused or that you do not accept PIAB’s assessment of your case, we can seek authorization to take your case through the District Court, Circuit Court or the High Court.
