  • Fractures: These types of accidents can result in broken bones throughout the body. 
  • Head and brain Injuries: It’s possible to suffer concussions as well as traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
  • Soft tissue injuries: It’s common to experience whiplash along with sprains due to the sudden jolt of a car accident.

2) Bicycle and Motorcycle Accidents

  • Road Rash: Sliding and/or skidding along the road can cause deep abrasions and lacerations.
  • Fractures: Impact with vehicles can lead to broken bones.
  • Internal Injuries: Accidents can cause internal organ damage and internal bleeding.

3) Workplace Accidents

  • Crush Injuries: Heavy machinery accidents can cause multiple injuries such as crushed limbs or internal organ damage. Those working in construction, factories, and manufacturing are particularly prone to these types of injuries. 
  • Burns: Accidents involving fires and exposure to hazardous substances can result in burns across different parts of the body.
  • Lacerations: Accidents involving machinery or equipment can lead to deep cuts. 

4) Slip and Fall Accidents

  • Broken Bones: These accidents can frequently result in fractures to wrists, hips and ankles.

How much compensation can I receive for multiple injuries?

When someone sustains multiple injuries in an accident, determining compensation can be complex. We will take into account the types of injuries you suffered and how they impacted you. It’s important to assess each injury individually and consider how they collectively impact your life, to arrive at a settlement that is fair.

While no amount can undo the pain you have gone through, through the claims process, we will try our hardest to get you the compensation you deserve to bring you back to the position you were in before the accident. 

Will it cost me anything to make a multiple injury claim?

At Paschal O’Hare Personal Injury Solicitors, we understand the financial stress that can accompany personal injury claims, especially when dealing with multiple injuries. While there is no ‘no win, no fee’ arrangement in Northern Ireland, if you win your claim, typically the insurance company representing the defendant covers all costs.
