“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt, This is My Story

Such cases can range from unfair or constructive dismissal, bullying and harassment, to a failure to provide you with the statutory rest breaks, holidays or a contract of employment. Unless such issues are resolved quickly, effectively, and fairly, they fester and grow into much bigger problems, far harder to resolve. Working in an ongoing unhealthy or difficult environment, rarely improves and more often becomes worse leaving all parties involved worse off.

Employment law is a complex area governed by constantly evolving legislation. Feel free to contact us should you wish to discuss matters in greater detail.

At Terence F Casey & Co., we provide a prompt, professional and dedicated legal advice and guidance in making a personal injury claim whether it is as a result of a road traffic accident, accident, slip and trip, injury at work or indeed in a public place or any such type of accident. We acknowledge and fully appreciate the medical implications and consequences of personal and occupational injuries and are always on hand to guide you successfully through this at times complex.

We firstly seek to fully understand the full aspects of your potential claim and establish the salient points and establish the merits of your case and exactly what you hope to achieve. Having done so, we pride ourselves on the provision of a frank and honest assessment of the likelihood of success. We recognise that it is important to provide at the earliest juncture, a realistic assessment of your case. We provide you with a written assessment of the case setting out our reasoned advices irrespective if our assessment is what you are hoping to hear. In short we tell it like it is – no more, no less. Remember you have a strict two year strict time limit to lodge your claim from the date of injury so if believe you may have a potential claim and you wish to pursue it, don’t delay call today on 064 6632516.

If you believe you may have a claim, and you wish to pursue it, give us a call and have a no obligation chat with either Dan or Conor on 064 66 32516 or by email. Also note that it is still possible to claim compensation for injuries sustained in a road traffic accident even where the other party cannot be traced or is uninsured. Such claims are handled by a Government funded organisation called the Motor Insurers Bureau of Ireland (MIBI). The MIBI may be required to step into the place of the other driver and may be required to compensate you as if the other driver was insured.

The workplace is a common place to sustain an injury. Slip or trip accidents can happen in many places, including injuries sustained on uneven pavements, defects in the road, spillages in supermarkets or and broken steps.

Your employer has a duty to protect you and to keep you informed about health and safety issues that may affect you in the workplace. Your employer must ensure that they provide you with a safe place of work, suitably updated and properly maintained equipment and machinery, health and safety training and protective equipment.

If you have been injured as a result of an accident at work, you may be able to claim compensation for your injury and losses into the future. Most if not all employer have insurance specifically for this type of incident. Remember also, if you believe that by making a claim that you may jeopardise you future employment prospects, should your employer attempt to do so, they may well be in breach of employment legislation should they attempt to do so.

What is judicial review?

Judicial review is a procedure by which a person who has been affected by a particular decision, action or failure to act of a public authority may make an application to the High Court, which may provide a remedy if it decides that the authority has acted unlawfully. Judicial review is concerned not with the merits of the decision, but whether the public body has acted lawfully.

A public authority may be acting unlawfully if it has made a decision or done something:

Without the legal power to do so (unlawful on the grounds of illegality)
So unreasonable that no reasonable decision-maker could have come to the same decision or done the same thing (unlawful on the grounds of reasonableness)
Without observing the rules of natural justice (unlawful on the grounds of procedural impropriety or fairness) in breach of European Community Law or the Human Rights Act
If the court finds that the public authority has acted unlawfully, it, may:

issue a mandatory order (i.e. an order requiring the public body to do something)
issue a prohibiting order (i.e. an order preventing the public body from doing something)
issue a quashing order (i.e. an order quashing the public body's decision)
make a declaration
award damages
Damages are rare and not automatically awarded as in county court or in employment tribunal cases, as the court may think that one of the other remedies is more appropriate. They are more likely to be awarded where there has been a breach of the Human Rights Act.

There is a 3 month deadline for making an application for judicial review, from the date of the act or omission that is being challenged, although there is an obligation on the person wishing to make an application to act promptly.

“It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

Regrettably relationship breakdown is all too common these days and when it occurs the consequences can be far reaching especially when children are involved. Such events in one’s life can be extremely traumatic leaving you feeling vunerable, anxious and concerned for the future and often results in an emotional rollercoaster leaving both parties and regrettably extended family at odds.

“Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariably they are both disappointed.”
― Albert Einstein

Relationship breakdown raises concerns for the children of the parties and often leads to the necessity of court application for access and custody in default of the parties agreeing, which of itself leads to greater anxiety. Parties to such relationship breakdowns find themselves feeling concerned and anxious in the anticipation of the necessity of negotiating financial arrangements and what is to happened to the family home, pensions and other property adjustment provisions.

“Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike.”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

“I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not mortified mine.”
― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
