What is the difference between a Solicitor and a Barrister?
In Ireland there are two types of Lawyers- A solicitor or a Barrister. Solicitors qualify from Blackhall Place, while Barristers qualify from The Kings Inns. Barristers are generally self-employed while Solicitors usually work within a firm. Solicitors offer legal advice and services in relation to buying and selling houses, drawing up Wills, advising you on areas on businesses and the initial advice in relation to personal injury claims. A Barrister usually specializes in court advocacy and providing legal opinions. Barristers do not deal with clients to the same extent as solicitors. They are usually provided with the details of a case by the solicitor and the Barrister will the review this information prior to giving an opinion or before attending Court. If a Solicitor believes that your case will require the opinion or expertise of a Barrister, he/she will recommend or retain a suitable Barrister.

What is a Personal Injury Claim?
In circumstances where a person was involved in an accident in which they suffer an injury through no fault of their own, they may be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim. It is important that you contact a solicitor as soon as possible after the accident in order to have your claim assessed before it is too late as the Statute of Limitations places a strict limit on the time in which you can bring a personal injury claim.
