Accidents at Work & Industrial Diseases
P R Hanna Solicitors help people throughout Northern Ireland who are injured at work and are able to recommend competitive insurance cover to ensure you’re not liable for any legal costs so that you get the maximum compensation you are entitled to.
If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident at work, which was not your fault and you suffer from a workplace injury, you may be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation. Contact the office and we will be pleased to advise you on your particular circumstances. You would need to prove that your injury, illness or disease was caused as a result of the negligence of another party (in this case your employer) and we will assist you in compiling your evidence and presenting it to the third party insurers.
Every personal injury compensation claim is very different and whilst some are settled within a matter of months, others can take years. Most claims for workplace accidents and workplace injuries are settled out of Court; however, some will need to progress this far. The Insurance cover available to you will enable you to progress your claim in a way that suits you best and you won’t have to pay the premium unless your claim is successful and it is then deducted from your compensation.
At P R Hanna Solicitors, our specialist accident at work solicitors can deal with all types of workplace accident and workplace injury claims ranging from lacerations, burns and soft tissue damage to catastrophic injuries such as brain injuries or spinal injuries and even fatal injury.
Who is at fault for your Workplace Accident?
All employers have a responsibility to protect their employees, contractors and visitors from accidents and injuries. They provide their employees with the necessary machinery and tools to complete their jobs. They also need to ensure the machines and tools are maintained to a safe condition. The workplace is kept in a safe and tidy condition. Employees should be provided with suitable workstations and chairs and the floor and corridors should be clean and free from hazards. Doors and gates should not be obstructed. All employees required to lift heavy objects should receive training to show them how to do this safely. All employees are provided with any safety wear they require to complete their jobs, such as goggles, hard hats, ear defenders, dust masks, safety gloves, safety boots or high-visibility jackets. You can also make a personal injury compensation claim if your workplace accident or workplace injury was caused by the negligence of another member of staff.
If you or anyone you know has been involved in a workplace accident and suffered a workplace injury, illness or disease, telephone us now for accurate claim advice. There are strict time limits in place to make any injury claim, including compensation claims for workplace accidents and work place injuries. Don’t delay.

P R Hanna Solicitors can advise you regarding industrial deafness and tinnitus type claims for workers who have suffered such injuries whilst for instance, working in the shipbuilding and aircraft sectors, but also more recently for Police officers who had to undergo regular firearms training. Even when ear protection may have been provided it ought to have been of a sufficient standard and claims can include instances where hearing loss could have occurred as a result of frequent radio use, while being transported in helicopters and while driving motor cycles. Hearing loss can be objectively measured and a medical examination and then a report can determine the extent of the compensation claim. We can also advise army personnel and prison officers as to the potential of any such claims.
