Road accidents involving drivers, passengers, pedestrians and cyclists are among the most common causes of *personal injury claims in Ireland. If you have been injured as a result of a road accident you might be entitled to claim compensation if the accident was the fault of someone else. Dillon Geraghty & Co. Solicitors are specialists in bringing claims for compensation for people injured in road accidents.
Every year in Ireland, many thousands of people are injured as a result of *accidents in public and private places. The largest proportion of claims relate to *accidents occurring in places such as playgrounds, leisure centres, shops and supermarkets. They often result from collisions with falling masonry, slips on spillage, dog bites, or trips caused by poorly maintained pavements or footpaths.
If you were injured as a result of an accident in a public place, you may be entitled to claim compensation. The law in this area can be complex and it is important that you are provided with specialist knowledge and advice relevant to your case. At Dillon Geraghty & Co. Solicitors, we have considerable expertise in this area and can advise you of the course of action which best suits your particular situation.
All employers owe a duty of care to their workforce to protect them from reasonably foreseeable injuries, under the law of negligence. Unfortunately however accidents at work can, and do, occur in a range of different circumstances. This includes *workplace accidents occurring through unsuitable or defective equipment, lack of training or protective clothing, hazards in the workplace, assaults at work and even mistakes made by other employees.
Whatever industry you work in it is your employer’s duty to provide a safe working environment and if they fail to do so, you may be entitled to *compensation if injuries or illnesses are sustained. If you have suffered an accident or illness at work and think you may have a valid case then seek legal advice immediately.
* In contentious business a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any settlement.
