Clare Shevlin - Accident compensation solicitor

Belfast accident compensation solicitor

Clare is another example of a qualified solicitor who has spent her entire professional life with us. Based in the Belfast office with Thompsons McClure, Clare represents clients across Northern Ireland.

Acting only for injured people, Clare has substantial experience of compensation claims for all types of personal injury. Although she specialises in work accident compensation claims which are governed by the Employers Liability Regulations, Clare has a wealth of experience in road traffic accidents, occupational diseases and those injured in slips, trips or falls.

Her experience of work accident compensation claims has included falls from height, manual handling injuries, injuries caused by falling or moving objects, and slips or trips in the workplace. However, her expertise also includes the successful handling of many claims for assault at work. These involved injuries inflicted by work colleagues and patients in hospitals and care homes.

She has represented victims of road accidents who were passengers, pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists, as well of course as drivers who are injured through the negligence of other road users.

The other area of the law which Clare has had considerable success is that involving claims for industrial diseases caused through the negligence of employers. She has particular expertise in compensation claims for industrial deafness, but has also handled claims for dermatitis, occupational asthma, vibration white finger, and many other avoidable diseases.

Clare’s considerable expertise and knowledge of the regulations governing these areas of the law, will ensure that if you have a valid claim for compensation, she will secure the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.

Successful accident compensation claims

Below are just a couple of examples of cases where Clare has successfully secured compensation for her client.

Employers Liability
Work accident compensation claim – Needlestick injury

Clare represented a client, a hospital worker, who received a needlestick injury. This was the first case of its type where the defence argued that as there was only a minimal physical injury, the worker was not entitled to claim for a psychiatric injury.

Clare argued that blood tests for infection from a needlestick injury can take several months to confirm whether the victim has suffered infection for a number of diseases, including HIV. The worry over what might develop from the injury is extremely stressful and Clare argued that this would have a devastating effect on her client whilst awaiting those results.

When the defendant refused to admit liability, or offer any compensation, Clare had no alternative but to issue court proceedings. This matter eventually ended up in the Court of Appeal where Clare’s client was successful and was awarded accident compensation.

Work accident compensation claim – Assault at work

Two employees in a psychiatric unit asked Clare to represent them in their compensation claim after they were assaulted at work.

Their injuries had been inflicted by a patient on the unit. However, the defendants denied any liability on the basis that they had done everything they reasonably could to protect members of staff from such assaults.

Clare had no alternative but to issue court proceedings. However, during the trial, she was approached by the defendants who made an offer of compensation for her clients. The offer was a fair one and Clare was able to settle both cases without the need to continue with the trial.
