Can I claim for a Lorry or HGV accident?

If you’ve been injured in a lorry or HGV accident in Belfast or anywhere in Northern Ireland, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim. These accidents can often result in severe injuries, with consequences that can be life-changing. 

Some of the circumstances that may entitle you to claim compensation include:

  • The other driver was speeding 
  • The other driver failed to see you
  • The lorry was overloaded or the load was unsecured

To make a successful claim, you’ll need to demonstrate that your injury was caused by someone else’s negligence or breach of duty. This could be the lorry driver, their employer, or another party involved in the accident. 

Even if you’re partially at fault for the accident, you might still be able to make a compensation claim.

Our expert solicitors at Paschal O’Hare will assess your case and advise on whether you have a valid claim for compensation. We’ll guide you through the lorry accident claims process and ensure that you receive the advice and representation necessary to achieve a successful outcome.
