Heading Re Personal Injuries
We’ll have a general paragraph here that applies to all personal injury claims
their claims without the need for legal representation. Of course the more serious matters cannot be dealt with by PIAB but if the injuries are not too severe and both parties agree, the Injuries Board will seek to make an Assessment. If either party do not want the Injuries Board to assess the matter or aren’t happy with the Assessment award, the matter will then go to Court Proceedings. It is important to note that very few cases go all the way to a Court Room from Court Proceedings, for one reason or another the vast majority of cases settle long before the Hearing of the matter.
Our clients contact our office at the beginning of Personal Injury claims and we then take them through the PIAB process and, if necessary, the Courts process thereafter. We take huge pride and responsibility in the trust that our clients place in our firm. Quite often injured parties can be quite badly shaken up, particularly after a Road Traffic Accident (RTA) or a bad Accident at Work. For this reason our team are extremely conscious of the toll an accident can take on an injured party and we take the time to go through what is required and needed in a sensitive and relaxed manner.
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.
