Personal Injuries & Accident Claims

General Practice
  • Car Accident Claims

    James McSweeney Solicitors are experts in dealing with Car Accident Claims*.  We can guide you through the process and make sure that your claim is settled in a timely manner.

    The majority of Car Accident claims are “hit from behind” accidents which can cause serious whiplash (sudden acceleration-deceleration force that causes unrestrained, rapid forward and backward movement of the head and neck, most commonly from motor vehicle accidents).  If you have been injured within the last 2 years, please call us now for confidential advice.

    What you may not know is that your claim does not only cover what you are suffering now, but also what future physical pain and suffering, mental anguish and physical impairment you could suffer into the future.

    Other general and compensatory damages include past and future medical and hospital expenses and past and future loss of earnings.

    James managed and ran Ireland’s premier Personal Injuries legal practice, specialising in plaintiff litigation,  prior to setting up his own practice in 2007. James has an almost unique take on how to represent his clients.

    James only represents victims of accidents and never acts for Insurance Companies, ensuring that you can avail of a truly independent legal advice that is not compromised, no matter how unintentionally.

    At James McSweeney Solicitors, no client is more important than another one. Each client relationship is important.

    We are keenly aware that when a client comes to us for advice, they have very simple needs. Therefore if you would like a positive resolution to your legal difficulty within a reasonable time frame and at a competitive cost, please contact us without delay.

    Please read our Road Traffic Accident Guide for information on what to do if you are involved in an accident.

  • Workplace Accident Claims

    Accidents happen in various types of situations, for example, in the workplace due to employers not implementing adequate safety measures, a lack of safety equipment, dangerous machinery or premises, and a lack of proper training or supervision.

    What you may not know is that your claim does not only cover what you are suffering now, but also what future physical pain and suffering, mental anguish and physical impairment you could suffer into the future.

    Other general and compensatory damages include past and future medical and hospital expenses and past and future loss of earnings.

    Having managed and run Ireland’s premier Personal Injuries legal practice, specialising in plaintiff litigation, for a period of ten years, prior to setting up his own practice, James has an almost unique take on how to represent his clients.

What Our Clients Say

Our Legal Staff

  • James McSweeney has a special interest in Medical and Clinical Negligence* claims. Prior to setting up his own practice in 2007, James managed one of  Ireland’s leading specialist Medical Negligence* and Personal Injury* firms. He has experience in all Courts from the District Court to the Supreme Court, including the Supreme Court case of Roche –v- Roche.  This is, arguably, the most important legal case in the history of the Irish State.  In his Judgement, the Chief Justice noted that the issues raised were… “profound and complex on novel aspects of birth, the right to life and reproductive rights”.  This is the case that finally decided the status of the unborn in Irish Law.

    James has been at the cutting edge of developing innovative and quicker ways of winning cases for victims of medical accidents. The systems he has developed enable his Clients to prosecute their cases with confidence.

    Emma brings a professional and empathic approach to her work. She has regularly featured in various national publications and is consulted widely by media contributors on Medical Negligence Law.
