When you first contact us, we will immediately review your case, whether the accident occurred in Europe, North America or Australia. We will stay in contact with you throughout the process, and if the case requires it, we will collaborate with our international partners, ensuring your best interests are fully represented.



international CLAIMS PROCESS

The solicitor handling your case will obtain medical reports (from the medical consultant that treated you), the diagnosis and the recovery details including time.

In some cases where a traumatic accident happened, psychological treatment may also be needed.The reports from the psychologist that treated you after the accident will be required by the solicitor also.

Once your appointed solicitor has the information needed to progress your case, if the claim is to be litigated in Ireland, they will file a form A (application) with the Injury Board. Your solicitor will attach copies of the injury details, medical reports, and any expenses.

The Injuries Board will then acknowledge receipt of the application but will not handle the claim as it involves an overseas accident. They will issue an authorisation which will permit you to proceed with the litigation in Ireland through the courts.

Once the authorisation has been received by us we will then instruct a barrister to draft legal proceedings on your behalf.

Many European countries provide for a direct right of action against the defendant’s insurers so the writ can name them as the sole defendant. Once they are served with the writ they will nominate a claims handler to deal with the claim on their behalf.

Your case will then either be settled or proceed to a court hearing. We will obtain expert legal opinions from our international legal partners if necessary to assist the court in the assessment of compensation.
