Liam Moloney re-elected to American Association for Justice post
Kildare personal injury solicitor Liam Moloney, of Moloney & Co Solicitors, has been re-elected as a member of the Board of Governors of the American Association for Justice (AAJ).
Mr Moloney’s election took place at the organisations recent annual convention held in Philadelphia. Mr Moloney was also elected as vice-chair of the International Practice Sections of the Association and is currently vice-president of the Pan European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers (PEOPIL).
The AAJ is the largest trial lawyer’s association in the world with over 23,000 members. Mr Moloney is the governor representing Ireland and the UK with two other UK-based governors, international travel lawyers Katherine Allen of Hugh James Solicitors and Cheryl Palmer Hughes of Irwin Mitchell.
AAJ works internationally to improve and develop individual countries legal procedures and systems and lobbies governments to provide proper and fair compensation for victims of all types of accidents caused by the negligence of others. It has over 100 specialist litigation groups providing up to date information in relation to legal actions relating to areas such as asbestos, nursing homes, e-cigarettes, distracted driving and hernia-mesh claims.
Mr Moloney said: “I am honoured to have been re-elected to the Board as a Governor for Ireland and the UK. The association continues to fight for a fair civil justice system for victims of accidents and medical errors and to maintain safety and accountability for companies that harm consumers by selling dangerously defective products.”
He added: “The number of cross-border legal claims now being pursued here in Ireland has significantly increased with enhanced consumer protections under EU law. Many Irish residents who are injured abroad can now take their claims for compensation to the Irish Courts which can mean faster resolution of their cases.”
