Personal Injuries

Added: Wednesday, July 31, 2013

If you have had an accident, whether as result of a road traffic incident, an accident work or a trip and fall, then you are quiet entitled to claim for compensation where the accident was causes completely or partly by the negligence of someone else.

It has to be pointed out that the majority of us pay large sums of money for cars and house insurance each year and no one should feel embarrassed or guilty in taking a claim for an injury that merits compensation. Personal injuries can have an extraordinary effect on a person and can affect them for many years into the future.

Most claims are initially sent to the Injuries Board, formerly know as PIAB. However, many cases are not settled through the Injuries Board as PIAB either refuses to handle claims or awards made by them are not accepted by the parties. It is important from the outset to identify the responsible party and make your claim in good time to the Injuries Board.

Here at John Nash Solicitors we can help you complete your Injuries Board Application Form A to ensure that the correct negligent parties are identified at the outset, therefore ensuring that your case proceeds efficiently through the courts in the event that personal injury compensation does not result from a Injuries Board application.

The majority of  personal injury cases are dealt with on the basis that the legal costs  incurred are obtained from the negligent defendant party. All issues concerning a personal injury action will be discussed with you at the very outset in order to determine whether your have a  viable case to make. These first consultations are free of charge.
