One of the biggest fears people have about making a personal injury* claim is how much it will cost them to make an injury claim. Generally with personal injury solicitors fees, the rule is that cost of the injury claim is borne by the losing party. However, it is worth noting that many cases are settled before reaching a court hearing.
Personal Injuries claims must be submitted to the Injuries Board before proceeding to court. The current fee for making a claim through the Injuries Board is €45.00. The Injuries Board can award costs where it considers a person to be vulnerable although there is no definition of a vulnerable person.
It is not uncommon for a personal injuries case to be settled by your solicitor before being assessed by the Injuries Board. Usually our personal injury solicitor will arrange to meet with the defendant at a neutral venue to discuss settlement. We will always seek to have your costs paid by the other side and at the very least seek a significant contribution towards your costs.
The benefit of settlement is that you avoid unnecessary delays with clogged court lists and avoid the stress of having to give evidence. Settlement affords you more privacy.
