Whiplash claims

Areas we specialise in

Whiplash occurs when there is an overextension or sprain of the neck. Whiplash can often occur as a result of a motor vehicle accident or high impact slip/trip/fall type of accident. Symptoms of whiplash can be mild to very debilitating and can include pain, stiffness, loss of movement and sometimes headaches, muscle spasms and pain in the arm and shoulders and recovery can often take a few weeks to many months depending on the severity of the whiplash injury. If you suffer a personal injury such as whiplash in an accident where another party owed you a legal duty of care, the personal injury solicitors at Amorys will be able to advise you whether you can make a claim.

Road traffic accidents

Areas we specialise in

If you have been involved in an accident as a road user and injured as a result, Amorys Solicitors can advise you whether you have a claim. Users of the road include vehicle drivers, passengers, cyclists, pedestrians and motorcyclists and if an accident is caused by the negligence of another person the injured party may be entitled to make a claim for compensation for a personal injury even if the person who caused the accident is uninsured.

Psychiatric injury claims

Areas we specialise in

A psychiatric injury can be just as debilitating, if not more so, than a physical injury. Psychiatric injuries include post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), nervous shock, depression or anxiety disorder due to workplace bullying or harassment. It is also possible to suffer psychiatric injury as a secondary victim as a result of witnessing a serious accident involving a family member for example or while acting in a professional capacity.

Product liability claims

Areas we specialise in

A product liability claim may arise when the manufacturer or supplier of a defective product is legally liable for injury resulting from the production or supply of a faulty product. A defective product is defined as a product which fails to provide adequate safety to the consumer. Defective products could be faulty medical devices such as implants and joint replacements or electrical equipment, cars, children’s toys, industrial and farm machinery. There is ‘strict liability’ in Irish law regarding defective products and the Amorys team will guide and advise you regarding your claim under this heading.

Medical negligence claims

Areas we specialise in

A claim for medical negligence may arise as a result of what is called an ‘adverse incident’ caused by a medical practitioner or an agent of a medical facility. Medical negligence claims may arise against medical practitioners that are employed by the state or work in a private institution. An ‘Adverse incident’ could be a failure to diagnose, an error during a surgical procedure, failure to act on test results, inadequate nursing care, the incorrect administration of medicine etc. Medical negligence claims are complex and can be daunting for a person who has suffered an injury in a medical setting. Our experienced personal injury team at Amorys will assess your claim and advise you whether you have a legitimate medical negligence claim and help you through the legal process.

Fatal injury claims

Areas we specialise in

A fatal injury is when someone dies as a result of the wrongful act of another person. A claim for a fatal injury on behalf of the dependents of the deceased may be brought by the personal representative of the deceased or, if six months have passed since the fatal injury, by any of the dependents of the deceased. Damages may be awarded for the psychological distress of the dependents due to the fatal injury, loss of dependency for dependents who were financially dependent on the deceased and for funeral expenses and other expenses incurred.

Farming accidents

Areas we specialise in

There are approximately 300,000 people in Ireland employed in the agri-food industry. Farms are inherently busy and dangerous workplaces with the level of fatal accidents being far greater than in any other sector. Most injuries occur as a result of accidents with tractors and other farm vehicles, livestock and farm machinery. Falling objects and falls from a height are also the cause of many farm related accidents. If you have suffered an injury as a result of an accident on a farm we can advise you in confidence whether you can make a claim.

Cycling accidents

Areas we specialise in

If you have been injured while cycling your bike as a result of the negligence of another party you may be entitled to make a claim. Cyclists are extremely vulnerable road users and they are most likely to be involved in a collision with a private car in an urban area. Your accident may have been caused by a driver, motorcyclist, a pedestrian, another cyclist or even as a result of the condition of the road. Amorys Solicitors can advise you whether you have a legal claim for compensation.

Criminal Injury claims

Areas we specialise in

If you have been the victim of a crime and suffered an injury as a result, you may be entitled to be compensated. There are three possible routes to compensation:-

  1. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Tribunal – which can make an award of compensation to the victim of a crime, or their dependents if the victim died as a result of the crime.
  2. Civil Action – a case may be brought against the offender seeking damages for the injuries inflicted on the victim.
  3. The Garda Compensation Scheme – this scheme is for the benefit of members of An Garda Siochána who suffer maliciously inflicted injuries of a non-minor nature, or death while on duty or while acting in certain circumstances while off-duty, or simply as a result of being a member of An Garda Siochána.

Catastrophic injury claims

Areas we specialise in

A catastrophic injury is defined as an injury of such severity that it results in a permanent disability requiring the person to receive life-long care and assistance in daily living. Our job at Amorys is to ensure that you receive the correct level of compensation not only for the pain and suffering caused as a result of your injury but also amongst other things to fully cover your future medical treatment, future care needs, the provision of assistive technology, aids and appliances where required and your future loss of earnings.

Accidents in public places

Areas we specialise in

Both private businesses and public organisations have a legal duty of care towards their staff, customers and members of the public. Local authorities who are responsible for the running and upkeep of parks, public leisure centres, swimming pools, roads and footpaths etc. may be liable if you are injured as a result of an accident on their property. Also, if you suffer an injury in a business such as a restaurant, supermarket or shop as a result of the owners negligence you may be entitled to be compensated. Most private and public organisations have Public Liability Insurance to cover such claims.

Accidents at work

Areas we specialise in

Your employer has a legal duty of care to protect your health and safety while you are working. There are numerous laws and regulations to help ensure that employee welfare is protected in the workplace. Unfortunately, every year many accidents still occur in the workplace. If you have been injured in the workplace as a result of the negligence of your employer you may be entitled to compensation. It is important to remember that most employers have Employer’s Liability Insurance to cover accident claims in the workplace and your employer cannot dismiss you if you make a claim against them.
