Accidents At Work

Accidents can occur in any working environment, be it an office space or a building site. For those who have suffered a workplace accident, you may be entitled to compensation due to personal injury*, ongoing suffering, loss of wages, etc. Branigan Berkery Solicitors is experienced in the handling of all types of workplace accident claims, having successfully represented clients from within a variety of sectors.

Employers are under strict legal obligations to provide a safe place of work which includes safe work systems and co-employees who are properly trained and vetted. They must also provide proper equipment for the tasks required and are under strict obligations with regards to Health and Safety legislation. If they have failed in any of these requirements and you have become injured as a result, then you are entitled to compensation. Generally, companies will have an insurance policy which covers them in cases of employee accidents.

If you have suffered an accident at work, it is important that you:

  • Visit a medical professional who can accurately document the specifics of the injuries sustained.

  • Have your solicitor involved as soon as possible and do not discuss the details of the claim with your employer or their insurance company without first seeking legal advice or having your solicitor present.

  • Make a record of any loss of earnings, in case you need to claim these back at a later point.
