Personal Injuries

If you are a victim of an accident, either at work or otherwise, you may be entitled to compensation. With both a legal and medical background our experienced staff in Sherry McCaffery Solicitors will deal swiftly and sensitively with your case ensuring best results.

Since 22nd July 2004 and the enactment of the Personal Injuries Assessment Board Act 2003 all civil personal injury actions (with the exception of a few limited categories) must now, by law, be referred for assessment by the Injuries Board (formerly the Personal Injuries Assessment Board), before any proceedings in Court may be initiated.

At Sherry McCaffery Solicitors we can guide you through this complex procedure and advise you on the strict time limits that apply. We will go through the process step-by-step and assist you to ensure that your case is properly prepared and presented and ensure that with our expert advice you can make the correct decisions.

If you have been injured as a result of an accident you should contact your solicitor as soon as possible as there are strict time limits to make a claim.
