Your right to remain safe at work

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 as a result. What many do not know is that injured employees are entitled to justice in the form of compensation. Employers are required to obtain Employer Liability Insurance for this reason.

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 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 injury, you may have been absent from work and even accrued private treatment expenses. We would be able to assist you to recover from the financial and emotional burden associated with workplace injuries. 

We deal with many kinds of serious workplace accidents even if you were partially at fault. Under these circumstances there is still a way to claim compensation for your injuries.

What is my work accident claim worth?

At Paschal O’Hare we understand that every accident at work is different and impacts a person differently. Consequently, the amount of compensation for your injuries depend on a number of factors including severity and your financial losses. Our website contains a claims calculator which will give you an idea of how much is awarded for certain work accident injuries.
