Accidents in the Workplace
Our experience in Accidents in the Workplace
As one of the top Accidents in the Workplace Solicitors in Ireland, we recognise that accidents can happen anywhere, at any time. However, if you have an accident at work, you may be entitled to bring a personal injury claim for compensation.
Sometimes, an accident at work is merely bad luck. However, many workplace accidents could be prevented if employers took greater care of their employees, and ensured that their obligations to protect their employees are met. If an employer is negligent and/or breaches these obligations, and an employee suffers an injury as a result, then the employer should pay compensation to the injured party.
Here at Collins Crowley Solicitors, we work with many clients who have been injured in workplace accidents, and our experience enables us to get the very best results for our clients. We have represented clients who have been injured in a variety of workplace accidents, such as:
- Injuries sustained in factories.
- Injuries arising out of exposure to chemicals and diseases.
- Injuries in the pharmaceutical industry.
- Needle stick injuries.
- Injuries sustained in slip and trip accidents.
- Injuries sustained from falling from a height.
It is important to note that the Statute of Limitations for personal injury* claims is two years from the date of the accident in most cases. In some cases the statute can be extended, however it is safer to assume that the two year time limit applies to prevent any potential claim from becoming statute barred.
There is no charge for a consultation to discuss any potential claim. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to call us on 01 7093631. Alternatively request a callback and a member of our team will contact you as soon as possible.
*In contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement.
