Personal Injury: Accidents Involving Children

We believe from practical experience that no one ever wants to have to instruct a Personal Injury Claims Solicitor, however, if someone is injured through no fault of their own then the necessity to seek professional, experienced advice arises. Medical bills can pile up quickly as can everyday household bills when an injured party needs to take time off work because of their injuries.

We always mention the Statute of Limitations when we are asked to discuss any Personal Injury matter as it is vital to remember that you have only 2 years from the date of the accident to bring your claim.

Personal Injury Issues We Deal With:

Whilst all accidents can be terrifying, those involving children can be particularly difficult to deal with. Due to their age and developmental stage, they can result in lifelong consequences – both in terms of physical and psychological symptoms. Making a compensation claim may therefore be in their best interests and may help secure their financial future or support the cost of any treatment or rehabilitation they may require.

At John Gaynor & Co., Solicitors LLP we understand that dealing with children requires that extra degree of expertise and sensitivity. Our team of expert child accident solicitors are on hand to listen carefully to your story and ensure that your child receives the compensation they deserve.

 

Types of personal injuries

We have experience in dealing with claims such as:

  • Accidents at creche, pre-school or school.
  • Accidents on school trips or excursions.
  • Accidents in public/private playgrounds.
  • Road traffic accidents.
  • Trips, slip and fall accidents.
  • Accidents at fairs or events.
  • Workplace accidents (TY work experience).
  • Cycling accidents.
  • Child neglect & abuse cases.
  • Defective product claims.
  • Animal attacks.
  • Farm accidents.
  • Medical or clinical negligence.
  • Fatal accidents.

Time limits

The majority of personal injury claims must be made within two years from the date of the injury. However, accident claims involving children are different. This 2-year clock does not start ticking until a child reaches the age of 18. Children can therefore make a claim at any time up to their 20th birthday for accidents that occurred before they were 18. Until a child reaches the age of 18, an adult can take a claim on their behalf if they so wish.

The process of making a claim

To protect children who have suffered an accident and who bring a claim for compensation, certain special rules and procedures are in place to ensure that the outcome of their case is a fair reflection of their injury and future needs. If your child has been injured and you decide to bring a claim on their behalf, it is therefore important to instruct a specialist child accident solicitor who is familiar with this procedure.

John Gaynor & Co., Solicitors LLP is that firm. We’ll handle every aspect of the process – from gathering evidence and interviewing witnesses to negotiating settlements and representing your child’s interests in court. Our vast experience in dealing with the various steps in child accident claims and our excellent relationship with other lawyers and insurance companies, will also ensure the best possible outcome.

Step One – Talk To Us

If your child has suffered an injury through no fault of their own, seeking the advice of a professional and experienced solicitor is in their best interests. The first step is to call our experienced team of child accident solicitors. We’ll provide practical legal advice, making the experience as informative and as straight forward as possible.

Step Two – Medical Report

All personal injuries claims will require a medical report from either your child’s GP or the doctor who treated them after their accident. A medical report confirms that an injury has been sustained and that it is consistent with their accident. We will arrange to have this medical report drawn up.

Step Three – The Personal Injuries Assessment Board

Most personal injuries claims must first be submitted to the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB). Once an application has been submitted, PIAB will contact the person you are taking the claim against with a view to resolving the matter there and then. John Gaynor & Co., Solicitors LLP can help make this step as easy and stress free as possible. We will complete and send the application on your child’s behalf and represent their interests at all times.

Step Four – Court Settlement Hearing

This step is unique to child accident claims. Any settlement or PIAB award must be approved by a Court. A judge will review the medical report and will decide whether or not the settlement amount or assessment of compensation is sufficient and is in the child’s best interest. If the assessment is approved by the Court and you are happy with it, an Order will issue and the money will be released to your child once they turn 18. If the assessment is not approved by the judge or you are not satisfied with the assessment, court proceedings may then be issued.

Step Five – Court Proceedings

If the person you are taking the claim against declines to have the claim dealt with by PIAB, PIAB themselves decide not to assess the claim, the Court deems the assessment to be too low, or if you are not satisfied with the assessment, you can then bring court proceedings. This prospect often seems insurmountable, but we can assure that it is not – we’ll also be there every step of the way to represent and guide you.

5-Step Guide to Road Traffic Accidents

Following these very simple steps after a road traffic accident can help ensure that you are in the best possible position to initiate a claim, should you later decide to do so:

Step 1 – Medical Attention

The first step in any road traffic accident is to check to see if you, your passengers, or and anybody else involved in the accident need medical attention. If medical attention is required, call an ambulance immediately on 999 or 112. Even if you feel medical attention is not immediately required, it is still important that you seek medical attention. We would advise that you visit your doctor as soon as possible following an accident to ensure that there are no threats to your health.

Step 2 – Call the Gardaí

Regardless of how minor or serious the road traffic accident is, you should always call An Garda Síochána. If you decide not to call them or the Gardaí decide it is not serious enough for them to attend, it is important that you visit your nearest Garda station as soon possible and request that they take your statement about the accident and provide them with any details they require. If the Gardaí have been called, remain there until they arrive.

Step 3 – Gather Information

Regardless of whether or not the Gardaí arrive, if you are able and it is safe for you to do so, collect all the relevant information in connection with your accident, such as:

  • Date and time of the accident.
  • Location of the accident.
  • Registration number of the other vehicle(s) involved*
  • Insurance information of the other vehicle(s) involved*
  • Name and address of the other driver(s) / people involved*
  • Name of any Gardaí that arrive at the scene.
  • Contact details of any witnesses to the accident.

*If you are the victim of a hit and run or another motorist involved does not have valid insurance, we may still be able to take a claim on your behalf.

Step 4 – Take Photos

Taking pictures of the scene from different angles can help your solicitor and other people working on your case understand how and why the accident happened.

Step 5 – Contact a Solicitor

If you have suffered an injury due to a road traffic accident, seeking the advice of a professional and experienced personal injuries solicitor is in your best interests. They will organise medical appointments, submit the relevant applications, negotiate settlements on your behalf, and represent your interests if your case ever goes to court.

 

Time limit

If you have been injured in a road traffic accident, it’s important that you act quickly and initiate your claim as soon as possible. Generally speaking, you must initiate your claim within 2 years from the date of the accident.

Get in touch

Although it’s important that you act quickly, it’s just as important for you choose a firm that has a proven track record in taking and winning road traffic accident cases. With John Gaynor & Co., Solicitors LLP, you can be certain that we have the knowledge, experience, and drive to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

Despite the many improvements that have been made by employers in the last number of years and many new Irish and European health and safety regulations, accidents in the workplace are still quite common. Whilst some jobs will always have an element of risk, every employer has a duty to ensure that risks are kept to a minimum and free from potential hazards. If an employer fails to do so, and you suffer an injury as a result, you may be entitled to compensation.

Whether you are a construction worker or office worker, our team of dedicated workplace accident solicitors provide a full suite of legal services to those who have suffered a workplace injury.

 

Types of workplace accidents

We have experience in dealing with claims such as:

  • Injuries sustained whilst working with dangerous machinery
  • Back injury sustained whilst discharging work duties, usually lifting
  • Poor machinery/plant
  • Trips, falls or slips in the work environment
  • Poorly surfaced working floors/stairs
  • Lack of health and safety guidelines/precautions/safeguards
  • Lack of training and/or supervision

Time limit

However, if you have been the victim of an accident at work, it’s important that you act quickly and initiate your claim as soon as possible. Generally speaking, you must initiate your claim within 2 years from the date of your accident.

Making a Claim

The prospect of taking any personal injuries case can be a daunting one – especially when that claim is against your employer. Our experience has shown that many who have been injured in the workplace are concerned that taking any such case can result in dismissal, bullying or curtailment of promotional prospects.

Thankfully, there are strict laws protecting those who do take a claim against their employer from receiving unfair workplace sanctions. In most cases, a claim will be dealt with directly by your employer’s insurance company – meaning your employer will have very little involvement.

Following these very simple steps after a workplace accident can help ensure that you are in the best possible position to initiate a claim, should you later decide to do so:

Step 1 – Seek Medical Assistance

Whether it’s a minor accident or a serious one, your first step should always be to seek medical assistance. We would advise that you do so as soon as possible following an accident to ensure that there are no threats to your health or wellbeing.

Step 2 – Report the Accident

The next step in any workplace accident is to report the incident to your immediate superior as soon as possible. You should provide them with details of the accident such as a statement, the date and time of the accident, where the accident occurred, what you were doing at the time and whether or not there were any witnesses. If possible, you should insist on receiving a written acknowledgement from your employer that you reported the incident.

Step 3 – Contact a Solicitor

Seeking the advice of a professional and experienced workplace accident solicitor is in your best interests. Our experience has shown that, after an injury, victims are regularly pressured into accepting a fast and often unjust settlement. A solicitor will make sure that you receive the compensation you are entitled to.

Get in touch

With John Gaynor & Co., Solicitors LLP, you can be certain that we have the knowledge, experience, and drive to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve. We have the expertise required to determine if your employer is likely to be found liable and advise on the level of damages you are likely to receive.

If you have suffered an injury whilst under the care of a medical practitioner, such as a doctor, surgeon, pharmacist, dentist etc., you may be the victim of medical negligence and may be entitled to receive compensation.

Medical negligence is an extremely complicated area of Irish law. This is because medicine itself is complex and because the legal standard required to prove that medical negligence has occurred is very onerous. Thankfully our team of expert medical negligence solicitors are on hand to listen carefully to your story and, if necessary, to assemble a team of suitably qualified experts to assist you with your case.

Medical Negligence cases arise in a number of ways. Some of the most common medical negligence claims are:

  • Accident and emergency injuries
  • Acquired brain injuries
  • Birth defects
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Clinical negligence
  • Cosmetic/plastic surgery errors
  • Defective medical products
  • Dental negligence
  • GP malpractice
  • Hospital acquired infections
  • Medication/prescription errors
  • Missed/delayed diagnosis
  • Oncology & cancer misdiagnosis
  • Surgical errors

Time limit

It is important to bear in mind that medical negligence claims should be initiated as soon as possible as there are strict time periods for doing so. Generally speaking, a claim must be made within two years from the date that you become aware of your injury – whether that’s the day you received the negligent treatment or many years later.

 

How to make a claim – our four-step guide

Due to its complexity, medical negligence is primarily dealt with by way of legal action in the courts. Our team of expert medical negligence solicitors know that this prospect can be daunting to some – that’s why we will always work at a pace you are comfortable with.

  1. Seek legal advice

The first step in any medical negligence claim should always be to seek expert legal advice by calling our experienced team of medical negligence solicitors.

  1. Accessing medical records and obtaining expert reports

Once we have received your instructions, we will begin by compiling your relevant medical records. We will then arrange to have them reviewed by independent experts in the relevant medical field. It will be for these experts to advise whether the standard of care you received fell below the accepted standard. This is what will form the foundation of your case.

  1. Assessing the claim

Medical negligence can have serious and often life-changing consequences – leading to permanent physical injury, psychological trauma, or even death. Compensation is often necessary to help us, or those we love, adapt to these changes – from the provision of specialist care to the reconfiguration of homes and cars. To calculate the costs you have incurred and the future costs that may arise, we will usually engage the help of experts, such as an occupational therapist or quantity surveyor, to provide reports that allow us to assess the overall value of a claim.

  1. Issuing court proceedings

If you decide to proceed, we will prepare and file the relevant court papers, setting out the details of your claim. Although it is possible that the other side may be anxious to settle, it can take significantly longer if they refuse to admit liability. It is worth mentioning that the majority of our medical negligence cases are settled without ever going to trial.

At John Gaynor & Co Solicitors LLP, we know that a medical negligence injury can have significant emotional and financial consequences for you and your family. That is why we’ll do everything in our power to obtain the compensation that you deserve.

Cycling has seen a huge resurgence over the last number of years and has never before been a more popular way to travel in Ireland than it is today. As a particularly vulnerable road user, this increase in cycling has unfortunately led to a sharp increase in accidents involving cyclists.

This is made worse by the fact that when cycle accidents occur, the injuries sustained are often very serious – the effects of which can last for months, years or even the rest of your life. Medical bills can pile up quickly, time off work can affect income, and the injuries themselves can reduce a person’s quality of life. That’s why, if you have been injured in a cycle accident and it wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation – giving you the best chance to recover from whatever injury you have sustained.

At John Gaynor & Co., Solicitors LLP, our team of expert cycle accident solicitors will do everything we can to make the process run as smoothly as possible. We’ll listen to your story, provide you with practical legal advice and draw upon every possible resource we can to make sure that the injuries you’ve suffered aren’t ignored. We’re here to make the experience as straight forward as possible.

Cycle accidents involving other road users

Following these very simple steps after a cycle accident can help ensure that you are in the best possible position to initiate a claim, should you later decide to do so:

Even if you feel medical attention is not immediately required at the scene, we advise that you visit your doctor as soon as possible following an accident to ensure that there are no threats to your health that you may not have noticed.

Step 2 – Call the Gardaí

Regardless of how minor or serious a cycle accident is, you should always call An Garda Siochana – especially if it involves a motorist. If you decide not to call them or An Garda Siochana decide it is not serious enough for them to attend, it is important that you visit your nearest Garda station as soon possible and request that they take your statement about the accident and provide them with any details they require. If the Gardaí have been called, remain there until they arrive.

  • Insurance information of the other vehicle(s) involved*
  • Name and address of the other driver(s)/people involved*
  • Name of any Gardaí that arrive at the scene.
  • Contact details of any witnesses to the accident.

*If you are the victim of a hit and run or the motorist involved does not have valid insurance, we may still be able to take a claim on your behalf.

Step 4 – Take Photos

They will organise medical appointments, submit the relevant applications, negotiate settlements on your behalf, and represent your interests if your case ever goes to court.

 

Other cycle accidents

Not only must cyclists navigate the dangers of busy roads and unobservant motorists, but poor road conditions, blocked cycle lanes, potholes, broken tarmac, oil spillages, faulty bicycle components, poorly manufactured helmets, and inadequate bicycle repairs are just a few of the other challenges that cyclists face on a daily basis. If you have suffered an injury as a result of any of these, you may also be entitled to compensation. You can rest assured that our team of expert cycle accident solicitors have experience handling all types of cycle claims involving all kinds of injuries.

 Time limit

If you have been injured in a cycle accident, it’s important that you act quickly and initiate your claim as soon as possible. Generally speaking, you must initiate your claim within 2 years from the date of your accident.
