    Injury lawyers in Portstewart

    Portstewart is a small town in County Londonderry, Northern Ireland. Portstewart was a popular holiday destination for Victorian middle-class families. Its long, crescent-shaped seafront promenade is sheltered by rocky headlands. It is a reasonably prosperous town.

    Northern Ireland, just like the rest of the UK, has its fair share of work related accidents, and when staff are injured, sometimes very seriously, in an accident that was not their fault, they may be entitled to make a personal injury claim, using injury lawyers in Portstewart.

    All employers have a legal duty to protect the health and safety of their employees while in the workplace, and this includes preventative measures to avoid industrial illness and diseases. Even if a victim has left the employment years before, if the illness can be attributed to a particular job, they can still make a personal injury claim.

    Extra time to make an injury claim

    If you are injured in an accident that was the fault of someone else, you would normally have 3 years to make the claim. However, as these conditions can take so long to develop that is not always possible. The rules change slightly to allow for this and you have to make your claim either within three years of being diagnosed or within three years of becoming aware that you had the condition.
