At Hughes Murphy we offer a comprehensive General Litigation and Personal Injury Claims Service. We represent both Personal Injury Plaintiffs and Defendants at all stages of the litigation process. Our firm has developed extensive expertise in Personal Injury (both work-related and road traffic accident claims) and general litigation.
We specialise in Injuries Board applications, liaising with the Motor Insurance Bureau and in handling Circuit Court and High Court cases relating to Road Traffic Accidents, Public Liability and Employer Liability cases.
Often when an accident occurs, the claimant is told that they do not need a solicitor or are put under pressure to accept a fast settlement offer from the Insurance Companies. Using the services of a Solicitor at this early stage in your Injury claim ensures your interests are being protected by professionals who have experience in dealing with the insurance companies and analysing how much your potential claim may be worth.
Time Limits for making the Claim?
Where you have been injured in an accident through someone else’s fault, it is important that you act swiftly as there are strict time limits within which it is possible to commence your personal injury claim.
Generally speaking, the time limit within which you must make a personal injury claim is two years from the date that you know you are injured as a result of an accident. As a general rule, usually, this is two years from the date of the incident or injury. However, there are some exceptions to this rule, for example, if you are under 18 then the two year period does not commence until you have reached the age of 18 years. You are advised to submit your completed application to the Injuries Board as soon as possible.
In view of the time restrictions, it is very important that you contact a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible after an accident to ascertain whether you have a case and to notify all relevant parties where you intend to make a claim for personal injuries.
Timescale of your Case
In Personal Injury cases it is normal for a period of time to pass so that the injury and its impact can be assessed. Our experience shows that it is important that a case should not be settled before the client’s injuries have fully settled and we have a clear medical prognosis as to the future effects of any injury.
