Samuel’s Work Accident Claim Settles for £35,000 (Belfast)

During his employment in Belfast, Samuel encountered a hazard that led to a serious injury. A ruffled-up mat caused him to trip and crash through a non-standard glass door, resulting in severe cuts to his arm and forehead. He was rushed to the Mater Hospital in order to receive stitches.

Samuel reached out to our work accident solicitors 

Seeking professional legal advice, Samuel turned to the experts at Paschal O’Hare Solicitors. With a strong reputation for handling work accident claims, we promptly took action on his behalf.

A claim was initiated against Samuel’s employer, and liability was swiftly acknowledged by their insurance provider. To comprehensively assess Samuel’s injuries, we arranged for him to be examined by a Consultant Plastic Surgeon and a Consultant Psychiatrist. Our diligent collection of hospital and GP records facilitated detailed reports from the consultants, outlining the extent of Samuel’s injuries.

After medical evidence was served, negotiations commenced between the third-party insurer and our office. The third-party insurer initially offered our client £20,000 which was rejected. We were able to negotiate an increased settlement figure of £35,000 which Samuel was very happy with.
