Accidents at Work

Protecting your livelihood

Injuries arising from accidents at work can be caused by a lack of proper equipment, inadequate training and/or supervision or the failure by a colleague to do something that would have kept you safe and avoided the accident. If you suffer an accident at work you will be concerned about not only your health but by the financial worries and implications flowing from the accident.

You are entitled to investigate a claim against your employer in relation to the injuries and financial losses that you suffer from.

Even if you are self-employed you may still be able to claim compensation if for example you were a sub-contractor or if you were working in an area that was someone else’s responsibility. The employer will usually be insured and any claim for compensation would be handled by their insurance company. Rest assured that your employer is not entitled to dismiss you for bringing a claim against them.
