Injury at work solicitors in Belfast and Northern Ireland
In Northern Ireland, employers have the legal responsibility to keep their employees safe at work. Sometimes this duty of care is not met and staff members get injured at work. What many do not know is that injured employees are entitled to justice in the form of compensation. For this reason, employers are required to obtain Employer Liability Insurance.

Who can claim for an accident at work?
Work accidents are very common, but sometimes victims find it difficult to claim for their injuries. This is where we step in to help.
You may be able to claim for your work injury if you’ve been involved in an accident at work that wasn’t your fault in the last 3 years. As a result of your personal injury, you may have been absent from work and even accrued private treatment expenses. Our injury at work solicitors would be able to assist you to recover from the financial and emotional burden associated with your workplace injuries.
We even deal with serious workplace accidents where you may be partially at fault. Under these circumstances, there is still a way to claim compensation for your work injuries. Contact our accident at work solicitors in order to see how we can help.
