If you have suffered injuries in an accident that was caused due to the negligence or fault of another, it is necessary to get in touch with a solicitor. The laws of the State give you the right to claim compensation for the injuries you sustain in such an accident. However, to ensure proper handling of the accident claims, you need to instruct a competent solicitor.
When you appoint a solicitor to handle your accident claim, you need to provide him/her with the necessary details. What do you need to tell your solicitor? For proper handling of the claim, you need to provide the following details to your solicitor.
The facts associated with the accident. The exact details depend on the type of accident in which you were injured. If you were a victim of a road traffic accident, you have to provide details regarding your starting point and destination, the weather conditions, the sequence of events, the investigating Garda, the details of the witnesses and so on.
On the other hand, if it was a workplace accident, you need to provide details regarding your job duties and responsibilities, the exact cause of the injury, your supervisor, and the individuals who witnessed the incident.
The injuries caused due to the accident. Tell your solicitor about the physical and psychological effects of the accident. Provide every detail regarding your pain and suffering, immediate and long-term effects and prognosis of the medical practitioners treating you. Also, mention any previous injuries or conditions that were aggravated due to the accident.
The personal injury solicitors in Dublin would also require the medical records and bills for proceeding with the compensation claims. Make sure to keep every medical document related to the injuries you suffered and the impact it had on your health and well being.
The expenses incurred due to the accident. Keep the doctor’s fees and medical bills to give to your solicitor. This would be necessary for calculating the compensation amount you may claim from the negligent party that caused the accident. You also need to calculate the loss of earnings and other related cost, like the cost of travelling to the doctor’s chamber.
The amount of compensation you may get from the liable party depends on the degree of fault, the injuries you sustain and the losses you suffer. Competent legal advice and representation from the initial stage is necessary to ensure this.
