Claims for personal injury with help from solicitors in Belfast

Anyone can fall victim to an accident. However, when you suffer an injury which could be someone else’s fault, you could be eligible to make a personal injury claim. The definition of personal injury is extremely broad and can include emotional trauma as well as physical harm.

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.

If you or a loved one have suffered a personal injury please get in touch with our specialist team of solicitors today.

I couldn’t recommend Andrea Bell enough, as a first time house buyer I was pretty clueless to the whole process. Andrea guided me through, responded to my emails extremely quickly put my mind at ease and didn’t make me feel silly with all my questions. She made a process that could have been very stressful very easy. Thank you!

If I could rate Andrea any higher than 5 stars I would. Andrea Bell helped me with the sale and purchase of my new home. Andrea was fabulous to work with, she was never too busy to answer any questions I had and kept me up to date throughout. She went over and beyond working tirelessly to ensure I completed and get into my new home during these challenging times. I can't thank her enough for all of her help. I would have no hesitation in working with Andrea again in the future and would recommend her to everyone for any conveyancing needs!

Myself and my young daughter were recently in a car accident and subsequently put in contact with O’Hare Solicitors. Naill O’Hare dealt with personal injury claims for both of us. Naill could not have made the process any easier, taking all the necessary steps and keeping in contact with me at every stage. Even during the recent lockdown situation Niall took the time to contact me with updates whilst working remotely. Naill was very helpful and professional throughout the entire process and negotiated great settlements for both of us in an extremely timely manner. I would have no hesitation in using Niall and O’Hare Solicitors again and would highly recommend to all.

I cannot recommend Andrea Bell and O'Hare Solicitors highly enough. My husband and I used Andrea for both the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new house. Although our intended house purchase fell through, and we had to start again looking for a new home, Andrea pulled it all together for us and kept us focused through all the turmoil. Andrea is also the reason that today, coming out of lockdown we are in our new home 3 months. She worked tirelessly to get contracts signed, funds confirmed and keys exchanged while every company was shutting down and the country was going into lockdown. A true professional.

Would highly recommend if you want someone in your corner with both guts and integrity.

Absolutely without doubt the best legal service I have received over the years. Andrea Bell provides a flawless guidance that will easily meet and exceed anyone’s expectations.
