As with all towns, accidents happen in Dungannon. An accident which was caused by someone else can mean you are eligible to claim compensation, and Accident Advice Helpline can help you with claiming compensation in Dungannon.
A lot of accidents happen in the workplace, and the types of injuries received can vary considerably.
Accidents in the workplace
Most employers have Health and Safety guidelines in place to try to prevent accidents. In a busy working environment, it’s so easy for things to be missed. Some common accidents that we deal with are:
- Slips, trips and falls. These can be slipping on a wet reception floor if it’s raining outside, or falling over a computer cable that has been left trailing across the floor.
- Repetitive strain injuries can occur if you carry out the same movement as part of your job for hours at a time.
- Back injuries happen if you have not been properly trained in how to lift items or are not provided with the right equipment.
If you are injured at work, always report it through the correct procedure. This provides a useful log of what happened and helps your employer to investigate the accident.

Accident Advice Helpline have a unique 30 second test which can tell you if you are eligible to make a claim. This test is on our website, or you can call and one of our friendly advisors will talk you through it.
- To be eligible to claim you must be able to show that someone else caused your accident. This can be clear cut but sometimes witness statements or photographs can help with this.
- Make sure you keep a note of when your accident happened, as you only have three years in which to get your claim started.
- Medical evidence is important, so visit a doctor to have a proper medical assessment after your accident. This can prevent further problems down the road.
