Frequently Asked Injury Questions

If you have sustained an injury due to the negligence of another, it is likely that you will be entitled to make a personal injury claim. When you contact us, we will assess very quickly whether or not you have a valid accident claim. It may be that you are entitled to accident compensation for your injuries.  A damages payment can represent what it takes to return you to your original state before the accident took place.

By their nature, accidents vary enormously and no two injuries are exactly the same. You want your personal injury lawyer to assess your situation on its own merits.

Please speak to one of our expert injury lawyers today for free legal advice on your situation.

There are strict time limits which apply to personal injury claims. In most cases, if you are 18 or over and have been injured, you have 3 years from the date of your accident in which to formally commence legal proceedings.

Because it takes time to assess your case, gather medical evidence and contact insurers, if you have had an accident, you must seek legal advice as soon as possible.

However, time limits can vary and sometimes the time limit can be shorter than 3 years. We recommend, again, that you seek legal advice as soon as possible.

Your injury compensation claim is brought against the person or organisation that is to blame (or partially to blame) for causing your injury. In most cases that person or organisation will have insurance – we usually negotiate with their insurer who then pay any compensation you are due.

If you instruct us to handle your case, we will pursue your claim with every effort to resolve it as quickly as possible to recover the maximum amount of compensation for you.

Every claim is different, and sometimes court proceedings are unavoidable.  Even after court proceedings commence, an out of court settlement can still be reached, avoiding the need for court.  As litigation specialists, we have a well deserved reputation for being meticulously prepared and keeping our clients informed of their options at each stage.

In our legal system, the payment of compensation is intended to place the injured victim in a position as close to that as if your accident, injury or illness had never happened.

We seek to recover compensation for both your injury and all consequential losses including, for example, loss of earnings. We take a holistic approach which also focuses on your need for rehabilitation. For many accident victims, a key part of their rehabilitation involves being able to return to work and once again becoming an active member of society.

We also have a specialist medical negligence team dedicated to acting for victims of medical negligence.

Being a victim of medical negligence can be bewildering and it can be difficult to know where to turn. You have placed your trust in a healthcare professional and been let down, sometimes very badly and with serious consequences.  Many victims seek a simple explanation, to understand what went wrong and why or an apology from the doctor or professional body concerned. Sadly, this is not always forthcoming.

If you or a member of your family has been a victim of medical negligence, you need to seek professional expert advice as soon as possible because it takes time to assess your case and there are strict time limits, usually three years in order to bring a claim. This three year period runs either from the date of the negligence, or from the date you should have been aware of the injury or claim.

Area of expertise in this specialist area include:

  • A&E
  • birth injury
  • brain injury
  • delay in diagnosis
  • misdiagnosis
  • spinal injury
  • cancer claims

The Medical Negligence team at Morrish Solicitors includes solicitors who are members of the Law Society Clinical Negligence Accreditation Scheme, the Medical Negligence charity Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA) and APIL.

There are a number of ways to fund your claim, dependent upon your individual circumstances. Owing to their complexity, Medical Negligence cases can be expensive to investigate and pursue. We are able to represent you on a no win, no fee basis. We also hold a Medical Negligence franchise for the Legal Services Commission and are therefore able to offer Legal Aid in appropriate cases.

If you would like to know more about our medical negligence services, please call 033 3344 9600 or email [email protected]
