Personal Injuries and Litigation

Personal Injuries Solicitors

If you have been injured in an accident which was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation and to recover lost wages, medical expenses and other costs. We understand the impact an accident can have on you physically, psychologically and financially. At Douglas Law Solicitors located in Douglas, Cork we have a proven track record in achieving optimal results for our clients. We are committed to advancing your case efficiently and cost effectively.

We can advise you in relation to the following:-

  • road traffic accidents;
  • workplace accidents;
  • accidents while abroad on package holidays;
  • accidents in public places;
  • fatal injuries;
  • Injuries Board applications

There is a strict two year time limit within which you may bring a claim in respect of injuries so it is important to seek advice promptly.

From the outset we will advise you on the viability of your claim. We will investigate your case fully and take all of the necessary steps to protect and preserve vital evidence which may be required at a later date to assist in proving your claim. We will handle the Injuries Board process and will advise you fully in relation to the issuing of Court proceedings if the need arises.

Sometimes people deal directly with the Injuries Board without the assistance of a solicitor. In this situation people are often unsure as to whether the Injuries Board Assessment/Award is a fair award or not. We are often contacted by people seeking advice on whether the Injuries Board Assessment is in line with what the Courts would award and whether they should accept the Assessment/Award or not.

We have been handling Injuries Board claims on behalf of our clients since the establishment of the Injuries Board in 2004. The major advantage to seeking this advice is the reassurance and peace of mind that comes with knowing the Assessment is fair and reasonable in the circumstances. There are times when our advice to clients is to reject the Injuries Board Assessment and, in those cases, they have all gone on to achieve significantly higher settlements or Court awards.
