What our clients say

Serious injury claims & compensation

Belfast & Northern Ireland

The solicitors at McCartan Turkington Breen have represented clients seriously injured on the road, at work, whilst in a public space or as a result of clinical negligence. Often, these cases have been high-profile and widely reported. A serious or catastrophic injury is defined by the lasting, sometimes permanent, consequences of the accident. They often come in the form of brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations and birth injuries such as cerebral palsy.

Our serious injury claims specialists are here to help

Our expert team of serious injury solicitors are available to support, advise and guide you through this understandably difficult time. Our personal injury and clinical negligence departments are so well regarded, that they are both currently ranked in the prestigious Chambers Guide.

Our serious injury claims solicitors will seek to get you or your loved one:

  • Compensation, sometimes upwards of several million GBP for the injured person and their dependants.
  • Interim or periodic payments for ongoing medical treatment, rehabilitation and professional care for as long as necessary, even if for a lifetime.
  • Specialist assistive technology and household modifications up to and including a new purpose-built home.
  • Loss of earnings payments including loss of future earnings.     

We understand the devastation and upset caused when you or someone you care about has their world turned upside down by a catastrophic injury. Our Belfast office is fully accessible, however our team is available for home or hospital visits when they are required. It is not uncommon for even partners at the highest level of the firm to take the time to visit their most vulnerable clients.

The serious injury claims process

Although the most serious of injuries can be life-changing, it is our job to usher in a return to independent living in a timely manner, if possible. We will keep you up to date during every step of the process. Our solicitors strive to form a close working relationship with our seriously injured clients and to remind them that they are not fighting this battle alone. The process differs from case to case, but you can rest assured that your serious injury solicitor will ensure every step is in the direction of getting you the best possible outcome in your given circumstance.
