Below is a number of frequently asked questions in relation to car accident claims, if your question is not listed please do not hesitate to contact us.

What Should I Do If I Have Been Involved In A Car Accident?
Being in a car crash is a very stressful situation. People usually are surprised at how stressed they can be even following a relatively minor accident. If you are injured or worried about your health following an accident, you should go to your doctor. If you have been seriously injured you will probably be taken to hospital by ambulance. If you have been injured or if your car or other property has been damaged due to the negligence of another driver, you may have a claim against them for personal injuries and damage to your car and other property.
Things You Should Do Immediately
If you were driving you should notify your own insurance company immediately even if you do not believe you are at fault. Failure to notify them could result in a problem with insurance cover if the other driver takes a claim.

If the Gardaí were not called to the scene of the crash you should notify them without delay.

At the scene it is best to exchange names, addresses, registration details and insurance details with the other driver and to take the names and addresses of any witnesses. This is particularly important if the Gardaí are not at the scene.

If you have a mobile phone with a camera, use it to take pictures of the cars and the scene.

Do not admit liability.

"We can't recommend Lanigan Clarke Solicitors highly enough.
Recently we had run into problems with our mortgage
and Garry Clarke guided us through the sale of our house and the settlement with the bank.
Garry made the whole process very straight forward and was available to us at every stage of the process,
calmly steering us in the right direction and also speaking with the bank
on our behalf when we ran into stressful and difficult issues.
His efficiency and practical support was invaluable.
Thank you!"


"While struggling financially with our mortgage and getting nowhere with our bank, we approached Garry for advice.
Garry immediately put our minds at ease, set out a way forward for us, dealt firmly at all times with the bank,
and saw to it that we received a satisfactory outcome. Garry was always available to take our calls,
to reassure us when the bank was pressuring us, and everything worked out just exactly as he said they would.
We received a first class and professional service at all times from Garry and his staff.
We would recommend anyone struggling with mortgage difficulties to contact Garry. Finally,
Thank you so much for helping us at a very difficult time"
