Accident at Work Claims*
Making a compensation claim* for an accident* at work
Accidents* at work are one of the most common reasons for compensation claims* every year, second only to road traffic accidents*. No matter what industry you work in or how ‘safe’ you think your job is the truth is that accidents* are unpredictable, they can happen anywhere and they happen to ordinary people every day.

A safe working environment
It’s the duty of your employer to ensure that your working environment is as safe as it can possibly be. Although people regard Health and Safety legislation as intrusive and sometimes overbearing, it is there to ensure that your employer maintains his or her duty of care towards your wellbeing and safety while you’re at work.
While nobody can ever predict when an accident* will happen, many of them are entirely preventable and are the result of negligence. If your employer fails in their duty of care and you are injured* at work, you may be able to claim* compensation. For this to be the case, you’ll need to show:
- You were an employee
- Your employer breached their duty of care
- This breach caused your injury
This will indicate that a lack of care or negligence by your employer is directly responsible for the accident*. If that’s the case, then it’s time to talk to the professionals at Mullins & Treacy.
What should you do?
If you have had an accident* at work, whether you work in construction or are a 9-5 office worker, you may have the right to claim* compensation. Workers often feel that putting in a claim* against their employer can jeopardise their job security, but the truth is that the vast majority of employers are more than willing to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

Accident* at work compensation
A compensation claim* can provide you with the money you need to get back on your feet or pay for long-term care and rehabilitation. It also means that you can stop worrying about financial problems and focus on recovering from your illness or injury*. It can also highlight a problem in the workplace or in your employer’s procedures that needs to be addressed to prevent others from suffering a similar injury*.
