Dublin Bus Accident Compensation
I suffered severe injuries when the bus I was travelling in drove too quickly around a corner and crashed and I want to claim Dublin Bus accident compensation. How much may I be entitled to?
The first issue that must be addressed when making a claim for Dublin Bus Accident compensation is that the injury you sustained was due to the negligence of the bus driver. You may be entitled to claim compensation as you were a passenger on the bus which was driven erratically and without due consideration to those on-board.
In order to establish how much Dublin Bus accident compensation you may qualify for, you should consult a personal injury solicitor who can evaluate your case in the free initial consultation that most solicitors offer. If your solicitor agrees that you have a viable case against Dublin bus, he or she will ensure that you receive your complete entitlement to Dublin Bus compensation for an accident.
Each separate claim for Dublin Bus accident compensation is assessed first by the Injuries Board Ireland based on its individual merits and will depend on the nature, extent and severity of your injuries. Compensation will be calculated according to the values published in the Book of Quantum and will then be altered in response to your age, general state of health prior to the accident and – in some cases – your sex.
It should be noted, however, that it is very difficult to predict what one plaintiff may receive in Dublin Bus accident compensation without a thorough evaluation being carried out. Each case is unique and how much each individual compensation claim for a Dublin Bus accident is worth can differ substantially because of how the injuries affect the victim’s quality of life. This aspect of compensation is known as “loss of amenity” and refers to any everyday tasks you may be unable to perform and any leisure or social pastimes you can no longer partake in because of your injury.
In order to receive a preliminary estimate of how much Dublin Bus accident compensation you may be entitled you, you should speak with an experienced solicitor at the first moment possible. By referring to your medical records and listening to your account of the accident and the effects of your injuries, he or she could offer an informed idea of the amount of compensation you are likely to receive.
