What is a personal injury* claim?
Personal Injury* is a general term referring to a range of cases where an individual was injured due to the negligence of a third party. An injury can take many forms including physical injuries or even psychological issues that are usually harder to diagnose. In some cases, it is impossible to predict in what way and how long an injury will affect a person's life including their financial situation. So if this injury has meant you incurred medical expenses or forced you to miss work, you may be entitled to make a personal injury* claim.
Does an accident at work count as a personal injury*?
Put simply, an accident at work relates to any injury sustained by an employee in the course of their job. If the injury sustained was a result of your employer's negligence and is genuine then yes, you can make a personal injury* claim. However, if the accident occurred as a result of your own negligence, then there is no claim.
How long do I have to make a personal injury* claim?
In Ireland, there is a statute of limitations for personal injury* claims. An individual had 2 years from the date of the accident to make a claim. After this time period, you have no legal right to claim for injuries sustained. In order to make a claim, you will need to prove that the injury sustained was genuine and occurred as a direct result of the third party's negligence.
