Accidents
If you have been injured as a result of an accident, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. Most claims are brought as a result of:

  • Road Traffic Accidents
  • Accidents in the Workplace
  • Accidents in a Public Place

In the case of an accident or illness in the workplace, the employee must be able to prove that the employer was negligent in the provision of a safe place of work.

In the case of an accident in a public place, it must be proved that the owner of the premises owed the claimant a duty of care and that they were injured as a result of the owner’s negligence.
Employers and property owners can take out insurance policies to protect against such eventualities – employers’ and public liability insurance.
At John A. Sinnott & Co. Solicitors Wexford, we have represented both claimants and defendants. We will examine your individual circumstances and then advise you on the best course of action to take for you. We will be there with you to guide you through every step of the process.
 

Disputes
Disputes can arise for many reasons – in the workplace, when purchasing products and services, ownership of land etc. Often, one party involved in the dispute may instigate court proceedings if agreement cannot be reached. We have represented both sides in many cases, including:

  • Employment cases including redundancy, unfair dismissal and equality
  • Professional negligence and medical negligence
  • Land ownership
  • Damage to property
  • Product liability
  • Breach of contract
  • Citizenship and asylum
  • Claims against estates of a deceased person
  • Claims concerning undue influence on will or deeds
  • Citizenship, Asylum, Refugees
  • Arbitration - concerning disputes with your insurance company
