Since our inception in 1988, Rory Quigley & Co Solicitors has dealt with a huge amount of road traffic accidents.* From our Blanchardstown base, we help clients from all over Ireland achieve legal redress* after they’ve been involved in an accident that wasn’t their fault. Our extensive experience in dealing with road traffic accidents* has allowed us to develop unrivalled expertise and knowledge that allows us to offer clients the very highest professional standard of legal representation.
Although shock and even panic are an inevitable and completely natural reaction to a road traffic accident*, it's vitally important to try to remain as calm and as rational as possible following a collision. It’s important to:
-Get the vital information from the road user who caused the accident. This information should include the person’s name, address, vehicle registration, all insurance information and a phone number.
-After an accident – even after a perceived minor collision – call the Garda immediately. The Garda will log a record of the accident that will remain on file. Be sure to get the individual Garda’s contact information.
-Seek medical assistance in the event of an injury. Sometimes injuries, even serious injuries, aren’t properly registered due to the numbing effects of shock.
-Even if the accident wasn’t your fault it is important to report it to your insurance company as soon as possible.
Almost any road user who’s been injured in a road traffic accident* that wasn’t their fault is entitled to pursue a claim if they’ve been injured. This list includes:
In cases where the driver who caused the accident was not insured, you can still pursue legal action through The Motor Insurance Bureau of Ireland.
