At McGee Solicitors in Belfast we are personal injury experts. Our team are friendly and approachable and we will help you right from the start to get the assistance you need and obtain a fair compensation payment.
How Much Will It Cost?
One of the most common questions that we are asked by clients who have been involved in an accident is how much will it cost to make a claim.
Making a successful Compensation Claim will cost you nothing, as all legal fees are paid by the Insurance Company.
We also make sure that you keep 100% of your compensation after an accident.
We offer a Free Consultation to discuss what has happened and the options that are open to you. We will simply discuss your case and answer any questions you may have free of charge.

“Michael & Stephen were extremely thorough with fantastic attention to detail throughout my entire time with them. Michael was so informative and kept me in the know about everything that was going on. He is the best in the business for road traffic accident claims for sure! Thanks again!”
Keep 100% Compensation
As well as offering the best service and having an excellent track record of success, we guarantee that you will keep 100% of your compensation. Many firms keep a share of any personal injury compensation award. We do not. We strongly believe that the payment is yours and that you are entitled to the whole amount.
How Much Compensation Will I Get?
A very common question that people have after an accident is how much compensation they will get. There are a number of factors that affect the amount of compensation you get such as the seriousness of your injuries, how long your injuries will last for, and also if you have any financial losses such as lost wages or earnings as a direct result of the accident.

What Should I Do After An Accident?
If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, then your first priority should be seeking proper medical help. As well as ensuring that you are properly cared for, this initial treatment will form part of your diagnosis and medical history and will be detailed in any compensation claim you make.
You should make sure that as well as having treatment as soon as the accident has happened you return for any follow-up appointments that are recommended.
It is also always recommended that you seek legal representation as quickly as you can. If you instruct us to act on your behalf we will step in at once to contact the other party’s Insurance Company and start putting your case together.
In any event, you should avoid discussing the accident without a solicitor as you may inadvertently damage your case. If your accident was at work and you have been asked to give a statement, or if you were in a car accident and you have been asked about fault or wrongdoing, it is important to seek legal advice and representation as soon as you can, and ideally before you have any conversations about the incident.
Making A Claim
If you instruct McGee Solicitors to act on your behalf, you can be assured of representation by experts. We specialise in personal injury compensation claims and we will start work on your behalf immediately.
We will contact the other party or their insurer to ask them if they will admit liability early on. We will put together a strong case on your behalf and we will also instruct medical experts to examine you and provide evidence in support of your claim.
A personal injury compensation payment aims to compensate you both for the pain and suffering that you have experienced, including ongoing problems, and for any financial losses that you have sustained.
This means that you can expect to be compensated for physical and mental suffering, loss of amenity, or a reduction in your quality of life, and monetary losses such as loss of earnings, medical expenses and the cost of care and assistance.
“Cannot recommend McGee Solicitors highly enough, did a great job for me in helping with an accident claim, I was thrilled with the settlement they achieved for me, Thanks guys.”
As experts in the field, we understand how to build as strong a case as possible. Our team are experienced and highly trained negotiators and we very often can settle cases without the need to attend court. In the event that your case does proceed to a hearing, you can be sure of excellent representation throughout.
If your claim is successful, it is normal for the other party to cover your legal costs, meaning that you will not be required to pay.
Keep 100% Of Your Compensation – Guaranteed
At McGee Solicitors we genuinely care about our clients. We do everything in our power to obtain the best possible personal injury settlement. It is our belief that the money you are awarded belongs to you in its entirety. It is intended both to compensate you for the accident and to cover any financial losses, both now and in the future. For this reason, we guarantee we will not take any part of your compensation payment and you will keep 100%.
Combined with our leading expertise in personal injury compensation claims, our excellent service and our track record of success, this is what sets us apart from other personal injury solicitors.
If you instruct us to act on your behalf, you will be looked after from the start. We will work proactively to deal with your case as quickly as possible, although in the case of a more serious injury, it is sometimes advisable to wait for a long-term prognosis to ensure that you are adequately compensated for future difficulties.
We will also ensure that we keep you updated as to the progress of your claim and that we are available to speak to you as needed to answer any questions you may have.
“Having very little insight into the process of claims for road traffic accident I didn’t know how I could or even would claim. Unfortunately, I sustained injuries as a result of the trauma from the accident and was encouraged by my nephew to let McGee O’Kane Solicitors undertake my claim. I was guided by the firm to the process and was updated on a regular basis regarding status of claim always given clarification and information.”
Protection From Legal Costs
The overwhelming majority of accident compensation claims are settled without the need for Court Proceedings. This means that you do not have to pay any legal costs as they are paid by the “at fault” Insurance Company.
“I would encourage anyone who like me was ‘green’ to the process of claiming let McGee Solicitors represent them. I can only thank them right now for their help and the positive outcome of my claim.”
If you are to be liable for any costs then we will let you know before these arise. This means that you are protected at all times and have total peace of mind.
If your case has to go to Court then this is the point at which you may become liable for Legal Fees. However, we are determined that our clients should be able to claim for compensation with total protection from Legal Costs.
The use of no win no fee agreements are not permitted in Northern Ireland and we are not able to run your case on a No Win No Fee basis. However, please see below some of the options available to protect you from legal costs in your case:-
(1) Legal Expenses Insurance
We can apply for Legal Expenses Insurance for you to cover the costs of your case. This will provide total protection for you against any Legal Fees. If you were to lose your case in Court then the Legal Expenses Insurance will cover all of the costs and protect you. If you were to win your case then there is a modest premium that you pay from your settlement to cover the insurance policy costs. This means that if you do not win you do not have to pay anything! We therefore can provide a “Risk Free” way to pursue your claim for compensation.
(2) Legal Aid
We can make an application for Legal Aid on your behalf. If your case has merit and you qualify financially then you can apply for Legal Aid to cover the costs of your case. This will also cover any costs that may arise if you were to lose your case, and therefore gives full protection to you in any circumstances.
(3) Majority of Cases Settle
In the vast majority of cases they will settle “out of court” and any legal costs will be covered by the insurance company. If you are to be liable for any costs then we will let you know before these arise. This means that you are protected at all times and have peace of mind.
(4) Free Consultation
We provide a Free Consultation so you can discuss your case with us and get the right advice about any potential legal costs – if you have any concerns just call us now! 028 9039 4131
