You may have been in a public place and been caused to have a fall. These are very unpleasant events and can lead to anything ranging from bruised pride alone up to very serious and life lasting disabilities and in the most severe events, even death.
For defective pavements and public walkways, the local authorities such as Dublin City Council will have potential liability. In places such as shopping centres and supermarkets, the occupiers of the accident location would have potential liability for injuries caused in a slip, trip and fall type of scenario.
E.M. O'Hanrahan Solicitors is knowledgeable and experienced in this area. We can assist you in terms of identifying the correct party to be proceeded against, identifying any evidence which needs to be protected and documented and assessing whether any such case enjoys good prospects of success.
If there is a reasonable case to be bought against the liable party, we can assist in terms of draft formal demand notifications addressed to the responsible party, in taking up medical evidence and in drafting the mandatory application to the Personal Injuries Assessment Board.
