Road Traffic Accidents*

Road Traffic Accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury in Ireland.  Due to the continuing increase in the amount of cars using our roads the chances of being involved in a road traffic accident are increasing. Being involved in a road traffic accident is very often a stressful and difficult experience and can result in significant pain, suffering and financial loss.   It is important therefore that the necessary steps are taken in a timely manner so as to minimise stress and upset. The Personal Injuries Assessment Board released figures for liability actions in 2009 which indicated a staggering €33,000,000.00 being awarded to applicants with the average award being €23,143.00.   The most common type of injury receiving compensation are whiplash, back and spinal injuries.  Where a person suffers a significant injury as a result of their involvement in a road traffic accident they may be able to claim compensation for medical bills, loss of earnings and compensation for the personal suffering up to the date of the Court hearing and in cases of significant injury, into the future.
