There are around 2.5 million vehicles on the road in Ireland today, so as you can imagine our team of personal injury solicitors have a huge amount of experience in this field. Whatever accident you suffered while on the road, our team of car accident solicitors in Dublin 8 are ready to listen to what happened and advise what options are available as a result. Should the accident have been another person’s fault, we will get you the compensation you deserve.
There is a broad range of circumstances that could make you eligible to make a car accident claim.
For the most part, the majority of these car accidents are minor. We’ve all had a friend or family member who arrived home one night with a dented bumper or a smashed taillight. Over the course of your life, it’s likely that you’ll experience at least one small mishap, if not more, and when you do it’s important that you act appropriately. In all likelihood, a light fender bender or an insignificant hit to your car will probably be the extent of the matter, but even these trivial incidents can result in an injury like whiplash or soft tissue damage. If this is the case then you should take the issue very seriously, not only because you might have to suffer painful consequences in the immediate aftermath, but also because you can’t predict the long lasting effects that an apparent minor injury can have on you as you get older and time takes its toll. If you’ve experienced a car accident, whether it was a small crash or a much more serious incident in which you were injured, it’s important that you are in a position to enforce your legal rights in this situation. By doing so, may be ensuring that the future for you and your family is comfortable and secure.
No matter the details, our team of accomplished car accident solicitors are available to talk to you about your accident and advise when it is important that you take action. However, there are a number of things you can do to make your case an even stronger one. Feel free to revise the list below so you know what details we’ll ask about when you contact a member of our team.
Take Insurance Details
The insurance information you need when dealing with car accident solicitors can be found on the disc on a cars windscreen. If you’re involved in an accident, whether or not you need to make a car accident claim, you should exchange this information with the other driver.
Report the Accident
If there is no Gardai present at the scene of the accident, make sure you go to a Garda station to report what happened as soon as you can. Every Garda station has a book to record the details of road accidents. Having an official record like this is invaluable when it comes to making your claim because it gives some welcome credence to the events as described by you. Make sure that you’re present with the Garda to witness what exactly is written down, and that the information you give is specific and correct.
Get the Registration
Taking down the registration is the simplest and most important thing you can do to help your case. It is very possible that the insurance information you receive from the other driver is inaccurate, or that the information they give you is outright false. The one valid piece of information that you can bring to your car accident solicitors is the registration because it is immediately verifiable and extremely useful in tracking the course of events that led to the accident scene.
