Unfortunately, accidents at work are an all too common occurrence. Injuries due to slips and falls can cause untold distress and may very well have lasting implications for an individual. In cases where the individual injured was not at fault, or the injury was due to the carelessness or negligence of another or if the work environment was unsafe, the individual may be entitled to seek legal redress.*
Rory Quigley & Co Solicitors understands the tension associated with pursuing legal action against an employer. However, we stress to clients that their employer has insurance for this very scenario. As such it's important to remember, it is usally the insurance who will be dealing with the matter. We also remind clients that their injury could potentially cause them distress for much longer than they’re employed at their current workplace.
The first step after an accident in the workplace is to notify management of the incident. From here, management will note the accident and put the incident on record.
We advise all clients to request a copy of this report and read through it thoroughly to ensure its accuracy.
Medical attention for an injury should be sought as soon as possible.
