Work accident claims & compensation in Northern Ireland

You have the legal right to a safe place of work. Employers are obliged to ensure you are properly trained and provided with appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). They must also undertake risk assessments and manage their business in such a way that minimises risk to you. Unfortunately, sometimes things do not go as planned and employees get hurt. McCartan Turkington Breen has helped many people in Northern Ireland pursue an accident at work claim and we can help you too. Our personal injury claims department is so well regarded, that it is currently ranked in the top band in the prestigious Chambers Guide.

Our work accident claims solicitors will work tirelessly to get you:

  • Compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of amenity.
  • Private medical examinations.
  • Loss of earnings payment.
  • Any other special damages that are appropriate in the context of your case.

Our team of dedicated experts have obtained compensation for clients that have suffered a range of injuries, from cuts and bruises to serious life-changing injuries such as amputations. We have also dealt with many cases relating to industrial diseases such as industrial hearing loss, vibration injuries and respiratory illnesses caused by asbestos or other harmful particles.

We understand the pain, suffering and stress caused by an accident at work. Our mission is to get you back to where you were before your workplace accident, or as close to it as possible. In cases of more serious injuries, we aim to ensure that you receive the best quality of care and standard of living available.

You have a right to be safe at work

Many employees worry that pursuing the compensation they deserve will affect their relationship with their employer and perhaps even lose them their job. The majority of employers know that in that instance they might be breaking the law and further legal action could be pursued. Employers have insurance policies in place to ensure employees are fairly compensated in the result of an accident at work.

If you were involved in an accident at work in the last three years, contact us without delay and we will do everything we can to achieve the best possible outcome. Our initial consultations are free of charge, totally confidential and without obligation.

Injuries sustained in an accident at work are most often caused by:

  • Defective machinery or equipment.
  • Lifting excessive weight.
  • Failure to provide appropriate PPE.
  • Industrial disease.
