For You

individualOur lawyers bring a wealth of experience of acting for individuals who have been catastrophically or seriously injured due to the fault of another.

We can also handle claims that result in less serious injuries.

We can help individuals or groups of individuals who have been injured as a result of:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Cycle accidents
  • Accidents at work
  • Accidents due to potholes and defective public roads and footpaths
  • Accidents in private premises
  • Criminal injuries

We can also help with claims arising from:

  • Clinical negligence and medical malpractice
  • Faulty and defective products or services

Our Approach

Our clients are at the heart of what we do. We take the time to understand our client’s immediate financial or rehabilitation concerns following an accident.

We are unique in that we can provide a ‘one-stop’ service. Gerard McDermott QC Ltd is a legal team headed up by a senior Barrister (QC) and a Solicitor of over 18 years’ qualification. Assisted by highly trained legal assistants, we strive at all times to provide quality, yet friendly representation.

You choose the level of help you need

You might want us to handle your case from start to finish. We would take the hassle and stress of conducting a claim away from you.

If, on the other hand, you are pursuing a claim directly against an insurer, you might decide to come to us to handle only certain parts of your case, such as:

  • Representing you in court – at a trial or in an interim hearing
  • Drafting court documents on your behalf
  • Advising you on an offer of settlement or on the issue of liability for fault.

Our Fees

We appreciate that you will want the security of knowing you will not end up out of pocket as a result of making a claim, win or lose.

We will initially consider your claim on a free-of-charge basis (usually by way of a telephone discussion or face to face meeting).

We would then advise you as to the best method of funding your case. It is likely that your claim would be handled on a ‘no-win-no-fee’ basis.   That means, if you win your case then the other side are likely to have to pay most of your legal fees and expenses. You may then have to  pay us a capped percentage amount from your compensation to make up the rest of our fees.

If you were to lose your case, your legal ‘expenses’ would generally be covered by a policy of insurance. The only duties on you would be to provide honest and truthful instructions.
