Can I make a Claim? – Industrial Injury Claims
All employers owe a ‘duty of care’ to their employees, meaning they must take steps to keep them safe at work. Industrial accident claims can be made when an employer ignores their responsibilities, and an employee is injured as a result of their negligence.
Industrial injuries can be anything from:-
- Industrial deafness
- Chemical injuries
- Vibration white finger
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
We know that these types of injuries can have a long-lasting effect on your health and ability to work, and you deserve to be compensated for that.
We have acted for many individuals injured in an Industrial Accident. A common breach of health and safety law is where an employer provides unsafe machinery for an employee or where an employee does not receive proper training.
It is important to remember that your employer must make sure that the workplace and any necessary equipment is well maintained and safe to use. It is the responsibility of employers to ensure that employees can do their jobs safely and without risk of injury. Adequate training must be given to employees along with any necessary safety equipment and they must be properly supervised at work.

Will my Case go to Court? – Industrial Injury Claims
Most personal injury cases are settled without the need for Court Proceedings. In most cases responsibility (or liability) for the accident is accepted by the other party and we are able to negotiate the maximum compensation settlement for our client. There is therefore no need to take the case to Court.
However, if the other party refuse to admit fault (or accept liability) for the accident or do not make a sufficient compensation proposal then will we consider issuing Court Proceedings on your behalf.
How Much Does It Cost?
We provide a Free Consultation with an expert to discuss your case. This is a no obligations consultation with our team, in person or over the phone, to discuss your case. This means it costs nothing to talk to the Personal Injury Solicitors Derry at McGee O’Kane.
We begin by sending the Insurance Company or “at fault” party a Letter of Claim advising that you have sustained injury due to their negligence. The accident will then be investigated and they will decide whether the Insurance Company or “at fault” party are willing to take responsibility for the accident that caused your injuries.
If they are prepared to take responsibility for the accident we will obtain medical reports to show the extent of your injuries and then begin negotiations to obtain the maximum compensation amount for you. In this case our legal fees are paid entirely by the Insurance Company so that making a claim costs you nothing.
If they are not prepared to accept responsibility then the next step is to issue proceedings and bring the case to Court. There may be costs involved in bringing the case to Court, such as Court Fees and Barristers Fees. We can apply for Legal Aid on your behalf to cover these costs.
However, the vast majority of cases are settled prior to Court and there are no legal costs due. In those cases it will cost you nothing to claim and you will keep 100% of your Compensation.
Will I Have to Give Evidence in Court?
In some cases people can be scared of going to Court as they are worried that they will have to speak in Court. This happens in a very small percentage of cases. Most cases are settled without having to go to Court at all. If your case does go to Court a huge number of Personal Injury Claims will settle before the Hearing, as the Insurance Company could make an improved compensation proposal or accept liability.
In short, issuing Court Proceedings does not mean that the case will end up in front of a Judge as cases often settle right up to the morning of the Hearing.
