A car accident injury claim is a legal case made by the victim of a car accident that was not their fault, brought against the party responsible for their accident in the hope of securing compensation for their injuries.
According to the PIAB, there were 21,410 personal injury claims brought before the Injuries Board in 2021.
Some 70% of these were related to motor-based accidents and road traffic collisions, meaning roughly 15,000 road traffic accident claims were made in Ireland in 2021.
This figure is likely to be even higher post-pandemic as road traffic returns to a normal level, and the PIAB will have to process a huge amount of car accident injury claims every day.
For this reason, you may want to consider availing of a personal injury solicitor to help construct a solid, well-formatted claim that stands a good chance of securing compensation.
