Criteria for a successful injury at work claim
You have grounds for an injury at work claim as long as the injury was not your fault: you should not have contributed to the injury through your own negligence. For example, if you asked your employer to provide you with equipment which conforms to the safety requirements for the job you perform, they have not provided you with this and an accident occurs, then clearly this is not your fault. You should have a workstation which conforms to the health and safety standards. If it does not, and you are diagnosed with an eyesight problem or RSI, you probably have grounds to pursue injury at work claims in County Clare.
If you have an accident in the workplace, then it should be recorded in the accident book immediately and witnesses’ names should be detailed. You should also seek immediate medical attention, as failure to do so could mean that your case for claiming compensation is weakened. You should also begin your claim for compensation within three years of your accident.
