Types of crash or accident we can assist you with:

We can assist you with any type of crash or accident involving a car, a motorbike, a taxi, a van, a lorry or a bus. The following are the most common types of accident in which we receive instructions:
  • Driver of a vehicle involved in an accident who wasn’t at fault.
  • Passengers in vehicles involved in an accident.
  • Passengers in taxis or busses involved in an accident.
  • Pedestrians or cyclists that have been involved in an accident with a vehicle.
  • Hit and run accidents.
  • Accidents involving uninsured or unidentified drivers

What to do if you have been involved in a crash or accident :

  • Seek medical attention for your injuries – Even if believe that you have not been injured, it is always prudent to seek medical attention following an accident.
  • Contact us on 042 932 8053 – We will guide you through the steps you are required to take.
  • Report the accident to Gardai – If Gardai did not attend the scene of the accident, you must attend the Garda Station for the area where the accident occurred and make a formal report of your accident.

Uninsured or unidentified drivers :

​If you have been involved in an accident with a driver who is uninsured or where the other vehicle has not been identified, you are entitled to seek compensation from the Motor Insurers Bureau of Ireland (“MIBI”). The MIBI is a statutory body set up to compensate persons who have sustained injuries in such circumstances. A driver may be unidentified when the vehicle leaves the scene of an accident prior to details being exchanged. You must notify the MIBI of your claim within 30 days of your accident. It is therefore very important that you contact us as soon as possible after your accident.
