Personal Injury at Work *

Employers have a duty of care to their employees. This means that the employer has a duty to provide a safe place of work and a safe system of work to their employees. The safe place of work includes provision of machinery and equipment which is fit for purpose. The employer also has a duty to provide the employees with training and adequate supervision.

All employers also have statutory duties which vary depending on the nature of the employment e.g. statutory duties in relation to working with electrical equipment or mechanical equipment will be specific to that particular type of work and will obviously differ from work place to work place.

If you or a family member has suffered a personal injury at work in the last 2 years as a result of employer negligence, you may be entitled to make a claim. For professional advice, call us and we will arrange a consultation to discuss your injury in confidence.

Industrial Injury/Illness *

Industrial Injury/Illness generally occurs after the employee is exposed to a dangerous substance in the workplace (such as chemicals or asbestos) or is engaged in harmful activities in the workplace. This exposure can result in injuries/illnesses such as lung disease, skin disease and occupational cancer and industrial deafness.
