Injury at Work? Need a Work Injury Lawyer?

Have you suffered an injury in the workplace?

We have extensive experience in dealing with accidents and injuries sustained at work. We recently settled a contentious High Court case for a client, who suffered a serious injury whilst carrying out his duties at work.


Injury at work rights Ireland

If you have been unfortunate enough to have had an accident in your place of work, or during the course of your work, then you may be entitled to bring a claim for compensation, if it can be proven that the accident was not your fault.

Your employer has a very strict duty to provide you with a safe place and a safe system of work, and to ensure that you and your co-workers are properly trained, and have all of the proper equipment to carry out the tasks required. If an injury at work occurs, it should be properly investingated to ensure that your employer has done all that is reasonably practical to prevent it from occuring.


Workplace injury Ireland

Workplace accident claims can happen, but most are preventable. In order to be entitled to compensation, you need to prove that the fault or liability rests with someone else. If the accident was partly your fault, but some of the liability rests with another third party, then you may still be entitled to claim, but there is likely to be some level of reduction in any compensation received, due to what we refer to as contributory negligence. This will be explained to you by your solicitor from the beginning in terms of potential liability.


What should I do whilst injured at work?

If an accident does happen at work, then it is important that you report it immediately, and complete an incident report form, and that you seek immediate medical attention. Thereafter, once we have been treated and you are feeling well, contact your solicitor as soon as possible.

It is beneficial to get photographic evidence of where the accident happened, and that you do not admit liability yourself, even if your employer tries to pressure you to do so.

Injury at work? Top 5 tips on what to do

Tip 1.

Make an account of the accident/ incident as soon as possible after the event, whilst everything is still fresh in your mind. This will be of great assistance to you and your legal team.

Tip 2.    

Research your personal injury * solicitor. The web is a great resource to you in this task. Do not be afraid to query their experience, similar cases, outcome etc. Family and friends might also be able to provide you with recommendations.

Tip 3.

Depending on the accident, try to take pictures of the area, any vehicles involved, your injuries etc.

Tip 4.

Take names of other parties involved in an accident, any witnesses, insurance details (if applicable), registration details (if applicable).

Tip 5.

If you cannot afford to pay a personal injuries * solicitor, investigate whether some will act on a no win no fee basis. Whilst solicitors are not able to advertise that they will work on a no win no fee basis, they can actually carry out the work this way and many in fact do.
