Personal Injury Accidents at Work

Accidents at Work

Duty of care, compensation

Safety is something that happens between your ears, not something you hold in your hands

Jeff Cooper

Accidents at Work*

Employers have a legal duty of care towards their employees, to: 

  • Provide a safe place of work.
  • Provide a safe system of work, including adequate and appropriate training

If you suffer an injury at work due to a failure of this duty you can claim compensation against your employer

Legally you are entitled to bring such a case without losing your job.

If you have an accident at work you must report the accident at once to your supervisor, and receive medical attention if necessary. You should also keep a copy of any accident report form.

Do not sign anything that might place responsibility for the accident on you.

Consult a Solicitor.

John Griffin Solicitor has over twenty five years experience in dealing with accidents at work. Contact John and talk to him about your accident and he will advise you professionally in relation to your claim.

* in contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement
