Personal Injury Litigation
If you are involved in a road traffic accident or an accident at work during the course of your duties you may be entitled to bring an Injuries Board and/or court application for compensation. We also deal with bullying and harassment claims.
Gardai who have suffered injury whilst working can claim for compensation under the Garda Compensation Scheme. Our solicitors have extensive experience in dealing with clients claiming under the Scheme. There are time limits within which applications for compensation must be brought: under the Garda Síochána Compensation Acts, the time limit is three months.
If an Injuries Board application is to be brought or court proceedings to be launched, it is, generally speaking, two years. However, the time limits may be shorter or longer depending on the circumstances.
We have a team dedicated to advise members of An Garda Síochána with extensive experience in all areas of litigation. We have represented and advised all ranks. We have succeeded in obtaining for our clients substantial damages and serve members all over Ireland.
Our experience and expertise comes from the fact that we specialise in the field of personal injury claims.
