Road Traffic Accidents*

If you were involved in an accident, within the last two years and suffered an injury you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

By law all drivers must have at a minimum third party insurance cover. Therefore if a driver causes an accident his/her insurers will be covering the accident and any injury to a third party i.e. pedestrians, cyclists, other drivers, passengers. If the other driver in an accident is uninsured or leaves the scene of an accident, your claim can still be taken and is likely to be covered by the Motor Insurers Bureau of Ireland which was established to specifically cover such road traffic accidents*.

WHAT TO DO AFTER A ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENT * ? – Report the accident to the Gardai.– Take details from the other driver including name, insurance, registration number– Take details from any witnesses– Don’t admit liability . Often it is a condition of an insurance policy not to admit liability following anaccident and so it is wise not to admit liability in case your policy is invalidated.
