Personal Injury Solicitors

personal injury inner
If you have been injured, you may be entitled to compensation. Compensation in personal injury matters is assessed through Injuries Board, the Independent Government body formally referred to as the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB).

Road traffic accidents, public liability and workplace accidents must be submitted to Injuries Board for assessment. The party responsible for the injury however, must consent to the assessment of compensation by Injuries Board in order for this process to be completed.

We regularly advise clients on personal injury * cases such as:

  • Road traffic accidents*
  • Accidents at work*
  • Medical injuries/clinical negligence*
  • Slip and fall accidents*
  • Fatal accident claims*
  • Accident abroad/on holiday*

At Appelbe & Thornton Solicitors we keep our clients informed and involved every step of the way. No matter the accident nor the extent of the injuries you suffer, we are specialised and in a position to advise and represent you throughout your claim. Our guarantee is that we will use all of our skill, expertise and resources to secure the best possible outcome for you in a professional and friendly manner.

We can advise you throughout the entirety of your claim. We have represented our clients in personal injuries claims before every court in Ireland, including the District Court, the Circuit Court and the High Court. We can also help you with your claim to the Injuries Board.  This is the usual starting point for all personal injuries claims.

If you would like to speak to us about a possible claim, please take note there are specific time limits involving personal injuries actions that need to be borne in mind so if you have a question, please contact us and don’t let the clock run down. Unfortunately this happens sometimes and people can find their claim statute barred, which means it cannot be brought as it is out of time.

We are fully transparent about the legal costs involved in taking a case to the Injuries Board or to court. We agree our fees at the outset and set out in writing how the legal fees and outlay will be charged. We can agree a fee arrangement that suits you.

If you would like to consult with us about a potential claim, you can contact us at any of our contact details including calling our office telephone on 023 8820322. We advise our clients on the strength of the case and the process involved including costs in an upfront and transparent manner.

*In contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement, nor is it our practice to do so.

For more information about how we can help you please call us on 023 8820322, email us at, call into our offices (find us here) or complete our contact form and we'll get straight back to you. All emails and calls are treated in the strictest of confidence.
