Accidents at Work

Accidents at Work

Many accidents occur while people are at work. The law places certain duties on employers to safeguard employees and to try and prevent accidents at work. These duties include the duties to:

  • Provide and maintain a safe workplace which uses safe plant and equipment
  • Prevent risks from the use of any article or substance and from exposure to physical agents, noise and vibration
  • Provide instruction and training to employees
  • Provide protective clothing and equipment to employees (depending on work being undertaken)
  • Prevent improper conduct or behaviour likely to put safety, health and welfare of employees at risk

If you have suffered an injury because of an accident at work, the accident may have happened as a result of your employer’s failure to comply with the duties of employers and if this is the case, you may have good grounds to seek compensation. If you have had an accident at work, telephone McGrath Mullan and we will advise you over the telephone, whether or not we think your case will be successful. We have over 40 years’ experience dealing with personal injuries cases and we will endeavour to ensure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation in respect of your injuries. We will also ensure that your case is run as efficiently as possible and keep you informed of all developments.


In contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement.
