We Deal With All Types of Road Traffic Accidents, Including:
The Motor Insurers Bureau of Ireland (MIBI) is an organisation established by vehicle insurance companies and designed to help victims of uninsured motorists claim compensation. Rogers Solicitors works alongside uninsured motorists and victims of road traffic accidents caused by uninsured motorists to help you receive the compensation that you’re owed.
Hit & Run Road Traffic Accidents
Similar to dealing with uninsured motor accidents, the MIBI offers help to victims of hit-and-run road accidents where the perpetrator flees the scene. In these cases, Rogers Solicitors helps you file a case and receive compensation to pay for any physical, psychological, and vehicle damages sustained by the accident.
Claiming for fatal claims following a serious road traffic accident is a stressful, upsetting, and deeply sensitive event which is why we approach this with care, empathy, and respect. We provide assistance to executors and loved ones undertaking the process of filing a fatal claim following the death of a close friend or family member to help you pay funeral costs and damages.
Injured by Another Driver
If you’ve been in a road traffic accident where you’ve been injured by another driver, the Rogers Solicitors team can help. We represent clients who have been injured due to the negligence of another driver, whether the accident has happened while you’ve been driving or as a pedestrian.
Injured as a Passenger
Rogers Solicitors offers professional solicitor services to clients involved in road traffic accidents where they have been injured as a passenger. In these claims, we work diligently to help you receive any compensation that you’re entitled to in a reliable and efficient manner.

How We Manage a Car Accident Claim
We can assist you if you have been injured in a car accident through no fault of your own. Please get in touch with us and we will call you back immediately for an assessment of your case with no obligation. We will be able to tell you if you have a case and advise you on your options.
You must be able to demonstrate that the accident was the fault of another party. The Garda should be called in any event so that they can obtain all relevant details and collect statements and insurance details. They will be able to take the details of any witnesses to the accident. Solicitors can write to the Garda to request all relevant information related to the accident, and this information will form crucial evidence in establishing that another party was negligent. Dashcam footage and CCTV also form crucial evidence in claims for Personal Injury. Footage of an accident cannot be disputed.
You must also be able to prove that you have suffered an injury. If you were genuinely injured then you will likely have required medical treatment by your own GP or by medical staff in a hospital. Medical evidence must support your claim for personal injury. Solicitors are able to request your medical notes and records from whichever medic treated you and we can request a medical report from the treating doctor to outline your injuries for the purpose of supporting your personal injury claim.
Once we have a medical report to hand and all relevant information relating to the accident circumstances, we can then submit your case to the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB). All Personal Injury cases in Ireland must be submitted to PIAB (with some exceptions such as medical negligence claims). PIAB is an independent statutory board that assesses the value of Personal Injury claims in Ireland. PIAB will assess all medical evidence to hand and put forward their valuation on what they feel the claim is worth. If all parties are happy with the assessment then the case will be settled and compensation will be paid.
However, if a Defendant to the claim feels that they are not to blame for the accident then they will likely not agree to PIAB assessing the claim, and the claim will exit the PIAB process. Court proceedings will then be necessary to progress the matter. The bottom line is that PIAB will only get to assess the value of a case if the Defendant is happy to allow this, and they will only consent to this if they are happy to accept blame for the accident.
There may also be cases where the Defendant is happy for PIAB to assess the value of the case, but either the client or the Defendant is not happy with the valuation that PIAB has placed on the claim. Typically a client may feel that the assessment or award is too low, or the Defendant may feel that it is too high. The bottom line is that all parties must be happy with the award for settlement to take place within the PIAB process. If one or all of the parties are not happy with the PIAB assessment, then the case will exit the PIAB process and Court proceedings will be necessary to progress the case.
Car Accident Claims FAQ
Can I file a claim for personal injury after a car accident if the other driver left the scene?
Yes. The MIBI was established specifically to deal with these cases. While tracing down the third party involved in the scene is ideal (done with CCTV, registration plates, eye-witnesses etc), the claim can still be pursued without this info. Contact our team for more information today.
Can a claim be pursued for someone under 18 who was involved in a road traffic accident?
Yes. Rogers Solicitors provides road traffic accident solicitor services for clients under 18 years of age. In these cases, a parent or guardian must represent the victim involved.
