If you have suffered a fall or accident or a personal injury
and are wondering what is involved in bringing a claim, we at
Purtill Solicitors will guide you through the stages involved
in making a claim.
arising from a road traffic incident or an accident at work
can be traumatic and if another party is at fault then a claim
for personal injuries might arise. The first step is to establish
fault or liability by the other party. The second step to
deal with is called quantum, this relates to how much compensation
is due. Quantum itself is divided into two areas
Damages which include compensation for an injury
Damages which relate to out of pocket expenses such as
loss of earnings, medical bills and even travel expenses
A claim is initially submitted to the Injuries Board who will
provide a 90 day period for the respondent and/or their insurers
to agree to the assessment process. If this is forthcoming
then the Board will carry out their own assessment within
the usual period of 9 months, which in turn can be extended
by a further 6 months. If the claim cannot be concluded or
resolved under the ambit of the Injuries Board then an authorisation
is issued allowing the injured party to issue court proceedings.
Our expertise and experience in the area ensures that your
case is dealt with in the fastest possible time while ensuring
that the maximum benefit is achieved.
