Luas/Bus Crash Dublin

A number of clients have contacted us in relation to the Tallaght to Dublin LUAS crash with the bus on 17th September. Most are concerned with a statement by the Chairman of CIE and this was taken to imply that legal responsibility will be denied by all parties leading to a denial of redress and compensation for the unfortunate victims. The statement said that "the red light was with the bus" and we have reassured our clients that this does not mean that any party won't be held accountable.

Legal liability will depend on who is negligent - even to a small degree and we are confident that full legal responsibility can be established. It is clear that none of the passengers are in any way at fault and the provisions of the Civil Liability Act 1961 will therefore apply. This means that even if one of the parties (Dublin Bus, Luas, Dublin City Council etc) are even a small bit to blame for this accident, they will be found fully liable for all redress, compensation claims, medical expenses and loss of earnings of the injured passengers.

Those injured in this horrific crash should take legal advice from their solicitors as soon as possible.
