At HHD we provide specialist expert advice in relation to compensation for asbestos related diseases for victims and their families and deal with all claims in an expeditious and sympathetic manner. We specialise in obtaining compensation for victims of asbestos related disease. You may have been exposed to asbestos many years ago, but only recently developed symptoms. It may be you are concerned that the firm you worked for no longer exists or has been taken over and you will not be able to claim. This is why it is important to instruct Michael Hollywood, a specialist Solicitor who has experience in dealing with asbestos related claims on behalf of the victims and their families.
Michael Hollywood is one of the most respected experts in this field, and with over 20 years' experience, he is one of only a very few solicitors in Northern Ireland to provide detailed asbestos expertise. Meticulous care, coupled with compassion and sensitivity are the hallmarks of Michael's approach to working with clients and their families. At HHD we have represented clients who have previously worked in Belfast's shipyard, in building firms throughout N. Ireland and various public buildings including schools and hospitals.
We will work hard to ensure that your claim is dealt with quickly and sympathetically in order to obtain compensation to provide for your own and your family's financial needs and for any care you may require as a result of your illness.

Personal injury claims

We are personal injury specialists. With decades of experience we will make sure you receive the maximum compensation possible.
Road Traffic Accident Claims
Our experienced team of personal injury solicitors deal with all types of road accident claims and obtain compensation for the different types of injuries sustained, including whiplash, fractures, loss of limbs, or dental and eye injuries as well as psychological injuries such as travel anxiety or adjustment disorders.
Not Your Fault?
If you suffer an injury as result of a road traffic accident, which was not your fault, then you will be entitled to make a claim against the other driver.
100% Compensation For You - No Costs
We will recover compensation for all your physical and psychological injuries, as well as any vehicle damage costs, loss of earnings, physiotherapy or private medical care costs, vehicle damage depreciation and policy excess. Our costs will be paid by the other driver's insurance company therefore we will not charge you our fee. At HHD solicitors 'We don't get paid until after you have received your compensation.'
What To Do?
At the scene, to help your case you should take as many details as possible - such as the registration of the other car, the names, addresses and telephone numbers of the other driver and any witnesses to the accident and take photographs of all car damage. If you suspect a crime has been committed by the other driver, contact the Police immediately. If anyone is seriously injured you should call for an ambulance, otherwise you should seek medical treatment from your local A&E or GP. Please keep receipts for any private medical treatment needed.
What HHD Will Do?
Your case will be handled efficiently by an experienced solicitor. Your case will NOT BE HANDLED BY A CLAIMS HANDLER. We will arrange for you to be medically examined to assess your injuries and we will meet with any witnesses to take statements . We will assess your eligibility for legal aid if necessary and help you complete the application forms. We should be able to recover expenses such as private medical costs and loss of earnings. We will organise private physiotherapy free of charge and arrange vehicle hire again at no cost to you.

Tripping And Slipping Claims
If you have had a fall in a public place you may be able to pursue a personal injury compensation claim.
If your accident happened on a public footpath, road or park, you may be able to bring a claim against the local authority if your accident was due to their negligence. If you have slipped and fallen in some other public place, e.g. a restaurant, supermarket or leisure centre, you may be able to bring a claim against the owner or occupier of the premises under their public liability insurance policy.
To assist your claim, if your fall was due to a defect in the public footpath or road then you should try to take photographs of the accident site as quickly as possible. You should also record details of any witnesses to your accident, as these may be useful at a later date.
When you advise us of your accident we will make enquiries to determine the identity of the body or individual who is responsible for the area where you fell and we raise your claim with them. We will arrange to meet with any witnesses to take statements. We will also arrange for you to be medically examined to determine the extent of your injuries. We will advise you on your eligibility for legal aid if appropriate and assist you in completing the necessary forms.

With Damian I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I used Damian as my solicitor many years ago and I came back to him because I was happy then and this time my case went beyond all my expectations. He fought my case so well. Absolutely nothing could’ve been done better. He explained everything to me every step of the way through my case and my outcome far exceeded my expectations. Thanks again so, so much.

Mr BP 19/06/19

With Fiona Sterritt and Lauren Jones we were really, really happy. We felt their knowledge of our case was brilliant, they knew our case inside out and knew all the details of it. Fiona really understood where we coming from, and we know we were anxious and always on the phone but she always had time for us. Thank you both so much.

Mrs T, 7th August 2018
