If you need to make a work accident claim in Ireland, please complete your work’s accident claim form.
An employer in Ireland has a particular duty towards his employee and is, by law, obliged to provide a safe place of work, a safe system of work and employees are supposed to be correctly trained. In the real world, however, work places can sometimes be unsatisfactory, but this in itself may not be sufficient for someone to succeed in a claim against one’s employer. Certain judges may take the view that an employer is only supposed to do what is reasonable in the circumstances in providing employment.
To aid you, we have put together a checklist of what to do if you have an accident at work which you can download.
There is a 2 year time limit to making a personal injury compensation claim from the date of the accident, so it’s advisable to seek expert legal advice as soon as you think you may have a valid claim for compensation. It’s often easier to investigate your accident claim if you begin proceedings quickly.
