Road Traffic Accidents

Road Traffic Accidents

At Rogers Solicitors we deal with a high volume of road traffic accident claims every year. Our legal team deal with personal injury* cases all over Ireland, with a base in Dublin. Unfortunately road traffic accidents are extremely common in Ireland and can happen to anybody, even if the accident is not your fault. Our legal team can assist you with claims and answer any queries you have.

What do I do if I have been in a road accident?



First of all we understand that this will be a total shock and it is important to look after yourself. Many people can freeze and lose rational thought. We always advise that you follow the steps as outlined below:


  • Ensure that you get the person at faults details. This includes name, address, vehicle registration, make, model, insurance details and contact number.
  • Be sure to call the Gardai in the event of a car accident. They will take a record of the accident and have this on file. Always take down the name and number of the Guard you are dealing with.
  • Be sure to seek medical help if required. Many people ignore symptoms due to shock, so if you feel unusual in any way be sure to get checked out.
  • Always inform your own insurance company of any accident, even if you feel it was not your fault.


Who can pursue a claim?



As long as you were not the driver at fault in an incident; then you can pursue a claim. This includes:

  • Drivers
  • Passengers
  • Pedestrians
  • Bus Passengers
  • Cyclist
  • Motorcyclist

Even if the “at fault” driver was not insured, you can still claim through the MIBI – The Motor Insurers Bureau of Ireland.



What do I do next?



The first step is to get in touch with Rogers Solicitors today. We are even open on Saturdays and available 24/7 to take your calls, texts and emails.
