At Pilar our solictors work in all areas of traffic claims, using the most up to date expertise in a range of areas, helping some of the road’s most vulnerable users. If you’ve been involved in an accident, we have the skills and expertise to assess your claim’s potential quickly and clearly. We operate a nationwide network, so can also make use of valuable local knowledge when it comes to your case.
Motorbike accidents can be complex. Often bikers are involved in accidents with cars or larger vehicles and there may also be adverse road conditions to add to the situation. It’s important to stay calm following an accident as any engaging in any debate with another driver can only add to the stress of your injury. If you have been knocked to the ground and are in pain, it’s advisable not to attempt to get up, in case you aggravate an injury. The emergency services will determine whether you should be moved. They are the experts.
Cyclists can be vulnerable on the road. Even if you’re wearing a helmet, reflective gear, have adequate lighting on your bike and obey the rules, you can still unfortunately be victims of careless driving or dangerous potholes. Often cyclists tell us that they feel there is an assumption that they at fault, even when this is deemed not to be the case. We understand how susceptible to injury people on bikes are, both in busy traffic and in rural areas. We also know that you need the best advice, if you feel that you’ve suffered injury due to the actions of others.
We will listen to you carefully and give you open and expert advice on whether we think you have potential for a claim. Our years of dealing with cyclists have given us valuable insight into how to assess your claim. You can talk to one of experts who will go through the incident with you and give you the best advice on how to proceed. We’re a nationwide network, so when you contact us, we can deal with your claim no matter where in the country you live or where the accident occurred.
Injuries to Pedestrians
The most common injury a pedestrian suffers is a result of being struck by a vehicle. This can often result in psychological injury as well as physical. Following an accident, you may become very wary when out walking or become a nervous pedestrian. Of course, the physical effects may result in ongoing medical treatment from doctors and physiotherapists, often at a lot of expense to the victim.
It can be difficult to negotiate your way through your legal rights as a pedestrian. That is where www.pilar.ie come in. We have vast experience in dealing with accident claims by pedestrians and will guide you through your claim, the Injuries Board or any other official channel you may need to go through.
