You may have been injured in a car accident, for example, or you could have been hurt at work or you might suffer a slip, trip or fall in a public place.
If you have suffered a personal injury, our team of specialists can help you to get compensation for the trauma you have suffered, as well as any loss of earnings as a result of your accident.
Personal injury Belfast – can I make a claim for personal injury?
If you have suffered an accident and someone else may have been at fault, you could have a claim for personal injury. The easiest way to decide whether you could make a claim is to give our expert personal injury solicitors in Northern Ireland a call.
As a general rule, you have three years to make a claim from the time the injury happened or when your condition was diagnosed. It may be that you have put your injury to the back of your mind. But, if you are still receiving medical treatment for a recurring problem it could be worth considering a claim. You may have had a whiplash injury in a car accident for example, and still be suffering back or neck pain which is forcing you to take time off work.
Our personal injury lawyers in Belfast can help with these common types of injury.
- Car accidents. If you’ve been in a car accident which wasn’t your fault as a driver, passenger or pedestrian you could claim for injuries such as whiplash
- Slips, trips and falls. Even something as innocuous as slipping on a wet floor in a bathroom or supermarket or tripping over an uneven pavement can result in long-term injuries
- Accidents at work
- Accidents in a public place such as a retail store
- Medical negligence
Personal injury claims Belfast – what level of claim can I expect?
The amount of compensation awarded for personal injury claims can vary significantly from case to case. Sums awarded can depend on the severity of the injuries. For example, a brain injury is likely to mean a higher compensation amount than a mild case of whiplash.
You may also be eligible to claim for loss of earnings.
You could make a claim for loss of support if you have had to take time off work, for future loss of earnings, or for any expenses you have incurred such as travelling to hospital. Or if a loved one has died as a result of a personal injury.
