Road Traffic Accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury in Ireland. Due to the continuing rise in the amount of cars using our roads the chances of being involved in a road traffic accident are increasing. Being involved in a road traffic accident is very often a stressful. It can be a difficult experience and can result in significant pain, suffering and financial loss. It is important therefore that the necessary steps are taken in a timely manner to minimise stress and upset. The Personal Injuries Assessment Board released figures for liability actions in 2016 which indicated a staggering €315,130,000.00 being awarded to applicants with the average award being €24,305.00 and 74% of those claimants involved in a road traffic accident. The most common type of injuries receiving compensation are whiplash injuries to the neck and spinal injuries. Where a person suffers a significant injury as a result of their involvement in a road traffic accident they may be able to claim compensation for medical bills, loss of earnings and compensation for the personal suffering up to the date of the Court hearing and in cases of significant injury, into the future.
