Common work accidents & injuries

Accidents at work tend to vary from workplace to workplace. However in our extensive and professional experience, spanning over 30 years, our personal injury solicitors have found the most common works accidents include:

  • Injuries caused due to excessive manual handling
  • Injuries sustained due to defective/unsafe work equipment
  • Injuries caused due to a lack of training or supervision
  • Slipping or tripping at your place of work.

We understand you might be a bit hesitant...

Suffering an accident at work can be a very upsetting time and the idea about making a work accident claim against your employer a concern.

It is important to remember your employer has a duty of care to all their employees. If that responsibility is breached causing you to be injured in an accident at work it is essential for you to speak up in order to prevent a similar accident from reoccuring.

You are fully protected should you choose to persue a claim for an accident at work. Your employer is not allowed to discriminate about you and your contract cannot be terminated simply because you make a work accident claim.
