Fortunately, most traffic accidents are not serious however there are circumstances where injuries are caused as a result of a serious collision on Irish roads. If you have sustained injuries including but not limited to fractures, whiplash, neck pain, back pain or bruising, you may be entitled to legal redress.
An injured party can take legal action following a road traffic accident if they can demonstrate that the accident was someone or something else's fault - in whole or in part.
All drivers in Ireland are legally required to have at a minimum third party insurance. This requirement is to ensure that a third party who sustains injury or damage as a result of another parties negligence will be compensated for such injury or damage.
In the event you are a victim of a driver with no insurance, you are likely to be compensated by the Motor Insurers' Bureau of Ireland (MIBI) for your injuries.
