If you find yourself in the regrettable position of having been injured as a result of an accident which was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering experienced by you and to recover out of pocket expenses such as medical bills and loss of earnings which you have incurred.

In the immediate aftermath of an accident in which you have been injured, it is often difficult to deal with anything while trying to cope with physical pain and discomfort.  It is essential in those circumstances that you seek the advice of someone you can trust who has the experience and expertise to deal with your claim in an efficient and cost effective manner.  At Kieran McCarthy & Co. we have over 30 years’ experience in resolving personal injury actions on behalf of our clients whether those injuries arise from a road traffic accident, a workplace accident or otherwise.

We understand that taking any sort of case can be daunting and particularly so when you are trying to deal with a physical and/or psychological injury.  That is why at Kieran McCarthy & Co. we are here to help.

Our plan of action:-

We will take detailed instructions from you at the first consultation and we will advise you fully of your legal rights and the options available to you.

With a few exceptions, all personal injury actions must first be referred to the Injuries Board for consideration.  This process may lead to a resolution of your claim and so it is very important that the application submitted to the Injuries Board is completed comprehensively and carefully.

We will attend to all matters necessary to progress your claim with the Injuries Board and we will keep you informed of each step in the process along the way.

If the Injuries Board makes an Assessment of your claim we will ask you to attend our offices so that we can advise you fully in relation to the Assessment and your available options.

In the event that the Injuries Board does not ultimately deal with your claim or if the Assessment made by the Injuries Board is not acceptable to you (the Assessment may not accurately reflect the full extent of your injuries or you may not have made sufficient enough recovery for it to be wise to conclude your case at this stage) or the Assessment is not acceptable to the Defendant, you may have to institute court proceedings.  If your claim proceeds in this way it is essential that you have had the benefit of good legal advice from the outset so that all necessary steps have been taken to preserve evidence vital to the successful outcome of your case.

If you have suffered injuries as a result of an accident which you believe may have been caused by someone else you should contact us at
