An accident must have been caused by the negligence of a third party. If that is the case and you have lost income from your wage or salary, other loss, damage or expense then you may well have a personal injury claim for compensation. If you were responsible for the accident then there is probably no claim going forward. In some cases there are rulings that liability is proportional. For example 20% liability may be attributed to you for contributory negligence in the accident and in such cases then only 80% of the award for compensation will go to you.
In the same way as in injured above then Harm may involve physiological and other situations where someone is traumatised and stressed after an accident temporally or permentally. They may or may not be physically harmed in the accident but they suffer mentally.
All medical personnel have a duty of care to their patients and when there is a breakdown in that duty of care due to negligence then there may be a case of Medical negligence.
Statute of limitation in Ireland
In Ireland the statute of limitations for bringing a personal injury claim for compensation is generally two years from the date of the accident. There are some minor exceptions and the leading one is that the clock only starts for a minor from the time they reach their majority of eighteen years of age. In the case of Medical negligence then the clock is started from the time it was discovered that duty of care was not performed.
