Making a claim after an accident
Our personal injury solicitors in Galway have many years of experience dealing with personal injury cases on behalf of injured parties and will be able to advise you on whether or not you may be entitled to compensation.
What is a Personal Injury?
A personal injury is any injury either physical or mental. Examples include cuts, scars and bruising, broken bones, soft tissue damage, sprains, ligament or tendon damage, brain damage, quadriplegic and paraplegic injuries, amputations, dental injuries, occupational stress, and psychological trauma.
Road Traffic Accidents
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident and have suffered a personal injury whether as a driver, passenger, cyclist, or pedestrian, you will know that it can have a devastating effect on both your life and the life of those around you. It is important that you get advice from an experienced personal injury solicitor at an early stage as there are time limits within which a claim may be brought.
Other accidents, including accidents at work
If you have suffered injury, loss, or damage as a result of an accident other than a road traffic accident such as an accident at work or a trip and fall, you may be entitled to bring a claim for compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses, loss of earnings, and other expenses and outlay related to your accident.
