Injury Claims



Carmody Moran Solicitors can provide immediate personal injury* representation and rehabilitation support anywhere in the Republic of Ireland.

Strict time limits apply in all Personal Injury cases. As such you need to act quickly to ‘stop the clock’. If action is not taken in time, your claim will become statute-barred.

The Injuries Board CEO, Patricia Byron commented in the 2014 Mid Year Review that “70% of personal injury claims are no longer litigated and only 2% of Personal Injury claims ever go to Court”.

The Injuries Board process itself however is complex and the various statute time frames for Court continue to apply. We will advise you if any settlement offer of compensation is adequate to compensate you for your claim, and if our expert Solicitors believe an offer to settle your case is not sufficient our experienced Solicitors will be on hand to guide you step by step through the process in plain English.

At Carmody Moran Solicitors we endeavor to guide you through this process as easily and smoothly as possible and we will be on hand to ensure that all aspects of your submission are correct and complete to ensure that you receive the right and just result.

We are transparent about legal costs for Injuries Board applications in straightforward matters.

Personal Injury Awards & Fees

In all cases we will endeavour to seek the other side to pay all or a portion of your costs but in the Injuries Board process, unlike when your case proceeds to Court, even when you win your case the law does not provide that you win your costs. In most cases we agree with the other side a contribution to your legal costs.

In all cases full details of fee arrangements are put in writing following an initial consultation. We are committed to being completely transparent about legal costs and unlike other firms you will at all times know where you stand regarding your legal costs from your initial consultation.

In engaging Carmody Moran Solicitors we commit to advising you:

  • that your full case and all relevant information is included in your claim
  • that your legal rights are protected even if your case does not settle in negotiations or in the Injuries Board process.
