Claims Ireland

The Independent Service that Assesses Compensation Claims

Claims Ireland: Personal Injury Calculator

We have provided a full calculator highlighting the general guidelines as to the amounts that you may be awarded or assessed in Personal Injury Claims.  Although all figures contained within the estimator are intended to provide you with a general guideline in relation to the value of an injury claim. Each claim will be considered on its own merits taking into account the individual circumstances of each Claimant such as age, occupation, severity of the injury and the impact of the injury.

Claims Ireland provide a panel of experts who assess cases on merit and quantum. Our team is on hand to provide you with a detailed assessment of your case, including whether the circumstances give rise to a viable claim and the level of damages you should expect to receive.
