Workplace Injuries in Dublin: Your Rights and How to Get Compensation

Workplace injury

If you’ve been injured at work, you need to know how to claim compensation for your injury. Workplace injuries are common, but there are steps you can take to get the compensation that you are owed.

What are the causes of workplace injuries?

  • Slips and trips: These account for a large proportion of workplace injuries. They can be caused by a number of things, such as poor lighting or inadequate flooring.
  • Falls: Falls are another common cause of workplace injuries and they’re often related to inadequate safety equipment (such as fall arrest systems) or training on how to use it properly.
  • Poor ventilation: This can lead to heat stress or carbon monoxide poisoning if you don’t have adequate ventilation in your office space or factory flooring that will let air flow freely through the building without getting trapped behind machinery or other objects that block airflow out of the room where people work every day.

What should you do if you have been injured at work?

If you have been injured at work, the first thing to do is go to a doctor and get a medical certificate. You should also take time off work and inform your employer of what has happened.

If possible, try to avoid making a claim for compensation until after you have recovered from your injury. This will make it easier for them to assess how much money they need to pay out in compensation because they can see how much time off work has been taken (and whether or not this was necessary).

If possible, try not to let things get too heated between yourself and your employer during negotiations over compensation – keep calm!

What to do after an injury

The next step is to get a medical certificate from your doctor or hospital, describing your injury and the treatment you need. Keep a record of any symptoms you have after the accident – this will help your solicitor build up a picture of what happened and how it affected you.

It’s also important to speak with someone who understands workplace injury compensation claims so that they can advise on whether or not you have a case. Your solicitor will be able to advise themself on whether or not there are grounds for pursuing compensation from either employers or third parties (for example, if another driver was at fault).

To help build up evidence for your claim, keep diaries about how long each symptom lasts for; try writing down when it started and ended so that both parties can see how much time was spent recovering from injuries sustained during work hours
