Personal Injuries*

If you have suffered personal injury of any kind – whether it is a workplace accident, a road traffic accident, a fall on a footpath, or any other type of personal injury caused by negligence or breach of duty of others – you may be entitled to claim compensation. All personal injury claims must be made through the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB) initially, and if that does not produce a satisfactory outcome, you can then apply to the Courts for compensation.

We provide full and complete advice to ensure that our clients safeguard their rights when they have suffered a personal injury.
