Making A Claim For Compensation For An Accident At Work Belfast
If you have been injured at work, to include working for your employer outside of their premises, you are advised to speak to a solicitor as soon as possible so that your claim can be documented.
You should also make sure that your accident has been recorded by your employer in their accident book and that you have been seen by a doctor or hospital. It is important to start collecting evidence of what has happened and your injuries as soon as you can. This should include speaking to witnesses who saw what happened or who know any relevant background to the incident and taking their contact details.
You can make notes of the incident so that none of the information is forgotten over time and also take relevant photos, for example, of anything you may have slipped on or tripped over or of faulty equipment.
If you ask us to bring your work accident compensation claim on your behalf, we will go through the details with you and make sure that everything is recorded.

Starting Your Work Accident Compensation Claim
We will contact your employer or their legal representative to let them know that you will be claiming compensation for a work accident. Their insurer’s legal team will usually deal with the matter and we will correspond with them, setting out the details of your claim.
If they admit liability for what has happened, we can negotiate the size of your compensation payment with them. We will refer you to our medical experts who will examine you and prepare reports on your injuries and how they might affect you in the future.
Where liability is not admitted, we will prepare a case showing why your employer is liable for your injuries. Where necessary, we can take your case to court, however we are often able to settle cases without the need for a hearing.
How Much Compensation For An Accident At Work?
You will no doubt want to know how much compensation is paid for an accident at work. Our personal injury solicitors have extensive experience in dealing with a range of claims, from fairly minor injuries to very severe cases.
If you ring to speak to us, we can go through your injuries with you and give you an idea of the amount you might expect to receive. You are entitled to be compensated for your pain and suffering, for not being able to do things that you used to do and for financial losses such as loss of earnings and expenses related to your accident.

How Long Does A Compensation Claim For An Accident At Work Take?
The length of time taken to settle a case depends on whether your employer’s insurer admits liability and agrees to pay you compensation or whether they deny liability. If liability is admitted and your injuries are relatively minor, a claim could be settled within a year.
Where your injuries are more severe, you are likely to be advised to wait and see how your recovery progresses and whether you will be left with lasting issues. We can apply for interim payments on your behalf where necessary.
If liability is denied or the payment offered is not sufficient and your claim goes to court, it could take substantially longer to settle.
In any event, we will make sure that you have the support you need and that you know exactly what is happening in your case and what the next steps will be.
“Absolutely amazing. I could not believe that I received £8,500 in compensation. I came to Michael McGee on a whim and he and the team dealt with my case. I did not think I would get anything and I did not think a solicitor would even take the case on. My case was unusual and I was not sure if there was any point in pursuing it. I kept 100% of my compensation as well. I am really grateful to Michael, he provided a great service. I did not have to do anything and only visited the office a couple of times.”
