Personal Injuries

Talk to your solicitor if you have been injured to obtain advice about your entitlements to compensation.

All personal injury claims, with some exceptions, must first go to the Injuries Board, an independent government body. You are entitled to be represented by a solicitor throughout the application process and at any Injuries Board hearings.

If the person responsible for your injury is not disputing liability and gives their consent, your claim for damages can be assessed by the Injuries Board. Where the person responsible for your injury does not give consent to an Injuries Board assessment, the Injuries Board issues an authorisation to allow you to pursue your claim through the courts.

There is a limited period within which you can bring a claim so you should apply as soon as possible after the injury occurs. Once consent is received from the person against whom the claim is made, the Injuries Board has nine months to make an award. This period may be extended by a further six months, but cannot go beyond fifteen months.

    It is not only good diet plan that will help you reduce weight. It requires collaboration of different therapies to reduce it. One of them is physical therapy, which is to perform daily exercises to shed off accumulated fat by consuming it strenuous activities as fats are one of high energy sources available in the body in a stored form.

    Personal injury is held and hurtful at all times for the man. The personification of the injury and filed for the top of the terms for the pain. Such situations are proven good for timely success for the individuals.
