Road Traffic Accident Claims

Road users have a duty of care to other road users including passengers and pedestrians. A road user who fully or partially is at fault for an accident may be liable to pay compensation. If a driver of a vehicle caused you injury and was not insured, you can still make a claim to the Motor Insurers’ Bureau which provides a framework for payment of compensation to victims.

Our Legal Team offer advanced liability advice.

Workplace Accident Claims

An employer owes a duty of care to its employees, including the provision of a safe place of work, a safe system of work, competent fellow employees and proper equipment. The Enterprise Act has diluted the Health and Safety at Work Act and therefore it is essential that you obtain proper legal advice.

Our Personal Injury Team are here to help.
