Taking legal action

If you have not been able resolve your complaint by complaining to a business, ombudsman or regulator, you can take action through the courts in one of two ways.

Small Claims Court

The Small Claims Court is designed as an inexpensive and fast way to deal with claims of up to €2,000 in value. It is administered by local District Court offices. Details of the Small Claims Court procedure, and links to the forms used, are available on the Citizens Information website.

Talk to a Solicitor

For claims of over €2,000 in value, or if you have suffered an injury, we recommend that you contact a solicitor.
