Under the Personal Injuries Assessment Board Act 2003, anyone who has been injured by the carelessness of another party is entitled to make an application for compensation through the Injuries Board, with the exception of claims made for medical negligence. While you need not instruct a solicitor to make a claim, having an experienced solicitor on your side can help to ensure your application fully details the nature of your condition and personal injury expenses you have already incurred or you expect to incur in the future.

When you are treated by someone working in the healthcare profession, you’re embarking on a contract of sorts – it’s called duty of care – where you’re entrusting them to give you the best possible medical attention and care they can provide.
Whether it’s a doctor or surgeon, a dentist, pharmacist or care home attendant, all of them are bound by law to attend to your needs to the best of their abilities. Most of the time, that’s exactly what you get. But sadly, it’s not always the case. So that’s where Cashell Solicitors come in. We are on hand and know everything there is to know about medical negligence claims.
Litigation is the method of resolving disputes or claims between individuals, companies and other bodies. Generally such matters fall into two categories. One is based on a contract being an agreement between two or more parties and the other is based on a civil wrong caused by one party to another either deliberately or negligently. The range of disputes can vary from the purchase of defective items to a multi-million euro claim arising from penalty clauses in a building contract. Civil wrongs include cases of personal injury and damage to property or reputation.
Here are just some of the things our experienced team can help you with:
- Consumer disputes.
- Boundary disputes.
- Penalty clause disputes.
- Educational disputes.
- Licensing Act disputes.
- Defamation / damage to reputation.
- Personal Injury.
- Damage to Property.
If you are in a dispute with another individual or company we can advise you on the chances of success and the possible value of your claim. We can negotiate on your behalf and if necessary commence or defend proceedings.
For most people, buying a new home or selling an existing one can sometimes be a stressful and daunting experience. We understand the importance of communicating with everyone involved in the process at all stages, the importance of acting quickly so there are no delays and most importantly ensuring that the move goes according to plan. Usually, a house purchase or sale involves a chain of transactions that can extend beyond your immediate control. Timing and negotiation play a vital part in achieving a successful outcome.
After you decide to buy or sell we recommend you contact us as quickly as possible to confirm instructions. We can then guide you through all of the stages in relation to your sale and/or purchase and all relevant features of the transactions. We will explain to you and outline the steps which will be involved all the way right through to the date when you move out of your current home and/or into your new home.
Wills & Probate
Everyone should make a Will to ensure that those closest to them receive exactly what you wish them to receive and should then review it every 5 or 10 years to make sure it does not need alteration, as your circumstances may change and so do the tax laws.
A straightforward Will is not as expensive as some imagine and it provides you with the piece of mind that comes from having your affairs covered in a valid legal document. If you make your own Will mistakes could easily happen, which can lead to serious problems and financial losses for those whom you intend to benefit from your estate.
Appointing Guardians for your Children in your Will.
If you pass away and the other parent of your children survives, the surviving parent will normally continue to have full responsibility for the children. However, if neither parent survives then the guardians you have appointed will take on the responsibility for your children. If you fail to appoint guardians in your Will, the courts will appoint them for you, but they will not necessarily choose the people that you would have preferred to take care of your children. By appointing guardians you can ensure that your children are looked after by the people that you have chosen as the best people for the job.
A trust is a legal arrangement where one or more ‘trustees’ are made legally responsible for holding assets. The assets – such as land, money, buildings, shares or even antiques – are placed in trust for the benefit of one or more ‘beneficiaries’.
The trustees are responsible for managing the trust and carrying out the wishes of the person who has put the assets in trust (the settlor). The settlors’ wishes for the trust are usually written in their Will or set out in a legal document called a ‘trust deed’.
Trusts may be set up for a number of reasons, for example:
- to control and protect family assets.
- when someone is too young to handle their affairs.
- when someone can not handle their affairs as they are incapacitated.
- to pass on money or assets when you die under the terms of your will, known as a ‘Will Trust.’
