Make Your Claim A Consumer’s Guide to the Injuries Board

If you or a member of your family has been a victim of an accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a claim to the Injuries Board to be compensated for the injuries that you suffered.

But if you do, you are likely to have many questions about what happened to you and about what you can and should do about it.

In this plain English guide for the consumer John McCarthy demystifies what often seems like a daunting process and shares with you over 10 years of experience representing victims.

This book is designed to answer your questions and to help you gain an understanding of the system.

And, perhaps most importantly, this book will tell you what you can do about it and tells you everything you need to know to be able to make your claim to the Injuries Board.

What some other readers have said:

Clear, comprehensive, jargon-free and user-friendly. And it also exposes the extent to which the State-corporate dice are loaded against the little people. A timely publication.

Gaia Charis, freelance writer and researcher at www.gaiacharis.com

This is the latest book from a stable of excellent books. It helps clients to navigate the claim process including the pitfalls. I would definitely recommend it to any of my clients.

When I had my personal injuries case I agonised over the decision on whether to have a solicitor from the start of the process.

This is the book I wish I had to help after I suffered my personal injury.

It’s clear on the process, it’s clear on the need to instruct a solicitor and it’s even helpful on how to choose and instruct a solicitor.

On another related note it’s also a book that addresses the attempt to make those who legitimately take personal injury claims feel like the guilty party.
