 Work Accident Claims

Being involved in an accident at work* can be a distressing and traumatic experience. If you have suffered a personal injury and the accident was no fault of your own, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim*.

Personal injury is an injury or illness that has been caused by someone else’s negligence. 

If you are an employee and you had an accident at work, you may be fearful of bringing a claim against your employer. However, the law is there to support you.

There is job security legislation and you are protected as an employee and cannot be dismissed by bringing an injury claim against your employer. A lot of employers will also have some form of liability insurance in place meaning it will be the insurance company who take.

If you had an accident at work that wasn’t your fault, you may seek compensation. 

You’re not alone. Every year, thousands of people are injured through no fault of their own. These injuries can cause pain and suffering and result in financial loss through medical expenses and loss of earnings.

If you have suffered injuries through no fault of yours, you may have a valid claim for compensation.

Personal Injury Claims: Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Claim for Personal Injury?
People commonly worry that making a personal injury claim may somehow be the wrong thing to do. Read about why it’s often the best way to protect yourself and your family.
How Much Will It Cost?
When you talk to Tallans, your first consultation is free. You tell us all about your case and we advise you on your individual circumstances.
How Long Does A Claim Take?
A difficult question to answer. The best way to answer is to get started as soon as you can. Ideally you should make a claim within a month of a injury happening following a road traffic accident.
Do I Need a Personal Injury Solicitor?
Often when an accident occurs, the victim is told that they do not need a solicitor or is put under pressure to accept a fast settlement offer. Even when working with the PIAB or the MIBI, it is important to make sure your interests are protected.
How Much Compensation Will I Get?
How long is a piece of string. This is too difficult a question to answer initially as we need to know your individual circumstances. There is a lot of factors to take into account. However, there is the Personal Injuries Board Book of Quantum which will give general idea of compensation amounts. It’s broken down into body parts. They give General Guidelines as to the amounts that may be awarded. Click here for the guidelines.
When Do I Need to Claim for Personal Injury Compensation?
Many victims of accidents and other personal injuries do not realise there is a time limit on when you can claim compensation. Learn about the time table and how to start a claim.
