When it Comes to Defending Your Rights, We Don’t Mess About!

We’re not the best at everything….just personal injury law

If you’ve suffered an injury, we know you’ll be worried about making a claim for personal injury*. Everyone is! It can be a daunting thought that you will be up against the big insurers during the claims process.

But you’re not alone. On average 33,500 people take a personal injury claim every year.

We know it’s not just about the money. It’s about fighting for your justice……then the money.

From accidents at work, to road traffic accidents, to accidents in a public place, we provide the solution!

How do we help?

First, we have a chat about your injury.

During the chat, we ask you about the circumstances of your accident. This is a critical stage because we need to establish if you have a good case. We have 40 years of combined experience. Don’t worry, we’ll know the answer.

With us, you’ll be in extra safe hands. Just ask our previous clients.

“I would just like to say thanks for your help throughout my case. I found Accident Claims Direct really helpful; I was really satisfied with the settlement you reached for me. All staff was really nice, so easy to deal with and was a great help throughout the whole case. I would recommend Accident Claims Direct to my family and friends.” L. McC. Dublin

We make sure that if your case proceeds to a claim, we get all the documents we need to apply to the Injuries Board. They must assess the claim before any (if needed) court action is required.

Why should you instruct a solicitor?

Settlements obtained by solicitors are, on average, 2 or 3 times higher than DIY claim settlements.

Enough said…….

How do you know if I have a case?

Well, generally, you have a case if:

  • You make a claim within two years of having the accident
  • The accident was wholly or partly the result of another person
  • You suffered an injury as a result of the accident
  • Or, you have recently become aware of an injury as a result of an accident that happened over two years ago

Due to our experience, we usually know straight away if you have a good chance of a successful claim. As we say….we don’t mess about!

We guarantee to make the whole process easy. We do all the work on your behalf. Not only that, we keep you informed at all times. This means you always know how far your case has progressed.

We deal with the big insurance companies. They prefer to deal with the injured party directly. That way, they can often pay out less money. That doesn’t happen on our watch. We make sure you get a medical report done. That way your claim for a financial settlement can be expertly calculated.

If you’ve also suffered a financial loss, we can fight for:

  • Your personal care and assistance
  • Compensation for damage to a vehicle
  • Loss of earnings
  • Compensation for damaged items such as clothing, phones, etc
  • Medical expenses
  • Travel expenses

Don’t think about making your claim for too long. There is no better time to start than now! Before you know it, you may have run out of time. The general rule is that you have two years from the date of the accident to make a claim.

And remember, you must prove your loss!!!

How?

When you make a claim, you need supporting evidence. Always get medical advice or treatment as soon as possible after you received the injury. We also arrange the supporting evidence that you need such as the medical report.

Don’t forget the importance of reporting and recording accidents

You should always report your accident as soon as possible. We can help you with this. You don’t want a situation where the party you are claiming against denies liability as the accident was never reported.

Remember- it’s vital to instruct a solicitor as soon as possible!

Why?

  • You want your memory to be as clear as possible about the events. The same goes for any potential witnesses. You don’t want them forgetting what happened. The faintest ink is better than the best memory. We want witness statements as close to the event as possible.
  • If for instance, you tripped in the street. We don’t want the Council hiding their blunder before we can assess the location and take photographs.
  • We track down witnesses.
  • We get hold of any CCTV footage before it’s discarded
  • If the law changes, you may not be entitled to make a claim
  • If you were injured by machinery, we need an expert engineer to inspect it as soon as possible. We don’t want to lose the opportunity because the machinery has been removed or sold.

Personal injury* claims – frequently asked questions

How long will a personal injury* claim take?

Every personal injury case is unique, so this will depend upon the circumstances of your individual case. Some straightforward motor vehicle collisions may settle within a matter of months, whereas a case involving a serious injury is likely to take much longer. We will be in a much better position to advise on this once we have completed our initial investigation of the case.

My injury occurred some time ago, can I still claim?

The general rule is that you have 2 years from the date of your injury within which to make a claim. If the accident involved a child, then the 2 years only starts to run from the child’s 18th Birthday. There are however exceptions to this rule, and it is always better to seek legal advice as soon as possible following any accident.

I am not even sure if I have a claim and wouldn’t want to waste anyone’s time.

We recognise that every case is different, and so we carefully assess every case on an individual basis. If we do not believe you have a case then we will tell you, as is our obligation. It is not in anyone’s best interests to proceed with a case we do not believe will succeed.

How much am I likely to receive?

Again, as every personal injury case is unique, the amount paid will depend upon the particular circumstances of each case and the medical evidence, and other relevant evidence obtained. Until we know the extent and duration of the injuries suffered, we are unable to say how much is likely to be awarded.

What does No Win No Fee mean?

The term ‘No Win No Fee’ is one that is familiar to most people. However, there can be some misunderstanding as to what exactly this term means.

‘No Win No Fee’ is the term used to describe how some solicitors take on a case. What ‘no win no fee’ means is, if the solicitor or law firm does not win the case for you, you do not pay the solicitor’s fees.

The Law Society has strict rules in place regarding advertising and these prohibit any solicitor from advertising their services as no win no fee. It is important that you clarify with your solicitors before instructing them that they do operate on a no win no fee basis and ensure that this is also put in writing to you.
