Road Traffic Accident Claims

Finghín O’Driscoll Solicitors provides our Cork based clients with the best in road traffic accident* legal representation and legal advice.
Road Traffic Accidents in Cork are very common, and thankfully not often serious! Most drivers will experience some sort of Road Traffic Accident (car crash or accident) at some point in their lives. In some unfortunate and thankfully rare circumstances, injuries are caused. If you have been in a road traffic accident* or car crash and have sustained whiplash, pain, bruising, back pain, neck pain or anything you may be entitled to legal redress.

A car crash or road traffic accident* has grounds for legal action where the injured party can demonstrate that the accident was someone or something else’s fault; in whole or in part.
The law in Ireland means all drivers must have at least third party insurance. This covers accidents if the driver causes damage to another party, including passengers in the car with the driver. If you are a victim to a driver with no insurance, you are likely to be covered by a special agreement covered by the Motor Insurers’ Bureau of Ireland (MIBI).
Depending on the seriousness of the accident the Gardai may or may not come to the scene.
