Accidents at Work
We can help with your accidents at work claim
Personal injuries often occur as a result of workplace accidents. In accordance with Health & Safety Authority regulations, employers must provide employees with appropriate training, appropriate supervision, appropriate machinery and equipment, qualified co-workers, and a safe working environment. While these regulations prevent many workplace accidents, accidents can still occur even if they are followed.
The process of bringing a case usually involves filing a claim against your employer's insurance. As it is within your legal rights to pursue a claim, you should not be discouraged by your employer.
