Accident at Work 01Work Accident Claims Ireland

The following is a small list of the DOs and DON'Ts concerning a work accident in Ireland. If you would like to make a work accident claim in Ireland, please complete the work accident claim form. The employer in Ireland has a particular duty towards his employee. He 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, particularly in view of the large degree of unemployment, work places are often unsatisfactory, but this of itself may not be sufficient for one 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.

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