Accident at Work Solicitors
Blanchardstown, Castleknock, Dublin City Centre

Accident at Work Solicitors in Blanchardstown Dublin.

Accidents at the workplace occur in many different workplace settings including construction sites, motoring incidents, restaurant kitchens, and even in moderately low-risk environments such as offices.

When someone suffers an injury through an accident at work and if there was a ‘liable party’ other than the victim (e.g. the employer), workplace injury claims can be made against an employer (most often against the latter’s insurers) and/or against related liable parties. Read below to find out if we can help you with any type of workplace injury claims today.


Claims can be made by victims of workplace accidents for;

  • Recompense for the injury including pain and sufferring (known as general damages)
  • Other damages such as special damages
  • Loss of earnings
  • Future loss of earnings
  • Out of pocket medical and other expenses

Workplace accidents when they do occur proceed in the manner of general personal injury claims and in the first instance an application is made to the Injuries Board.

The Injuries Board reported that the types of accidents at work and their severity varied greatly and that they included construction mishaps such as;

  • Being hit by a forklift or digger
  • Being rear-ended while operating a forklift or other machinery
  • Crush injuries from falling pallets
  • Falling or being thrown from a forklift
  • Injuries involving lifting or manual handling
  • Being struck by a crane tilt
  • Accidents at work caused by not wearing safety equipment


Recently the Injuries Board highlighted the increase in certain workplace accidents that were resulting in personal injury claims in particular in relation to accidents involving lifting equipment such as forklifts and cranes. The Personal Injuries Assessment Board or PIAB is an independent state body that assesses personal injury compensation.

In 2013 40 people received compensation for accidents in the workplace involving forklifts and cranes totaling €1.3 million euro, compared to only 34 people in 2011.

The Injuries Board reported that the average compensation award for these types of accidents at work involving cranes and forklifts that resulted in fractured and broken bones and soft tissue injuries was €32,990.

Obviously, this is only an average figure which means that some compensation awards for these accidents at work were higher than this figure and some lower but it is a very real indication of the level of compensation involved.

The Injuries Board reported that one in three accidents occurred as a result of falls in the workplace. The most serious accidents at construction or factory sites remain however as a result of faulty or defective machinery.

I was looking for a family law consultation and asked Carmody Moran for one. Unfortunately, they didn't have the capacity, but at least they were nice enough to call me back and reply by email.So the very least you can expect from these specialists is the right attitude (unlike from many others out there on the market), but likely a lot more!

We recently engaged Carmody Moran Solicitors for the purchase of our home, on receiving a recommendation for Caila Ryan specifically. Caila and the team were a pleasure to deal with. Caila was incredibly responsive, efficient and diligent throughout the process. As first time buyers, Caila explained all steps clearly and concisely to us, which eased our stress. Caila and the team went above and beyond for us - and accommodated ad hoc meetings when required. We highly recommend Caila and the team at Carmody Moran.

We recently closed on a first time house purchase and we were very pleased with how the whole process was handled at Carmody Moran. They always responded clearly and promptly to the many queries I had along the way and were on the ball with following up issues with the sellers solicitors to keep the process moving.The reason I went with them originally over other options was because they gave a very clear breakdown for the charges and the quoted price we were given was transparent and easy to understand compared to other quotes I received.I will definitely use them again if the need arises and recommend them to my friends and family.

I got the keys to my new house a few weeks back. I cannot recommend Carmody Moran Solicitors highly enough. It was a bit lengthy as I was buying and selling at the same time. In such cases you need experienced and competent solicitors such as Carmody Moran Solicitors.Stephanie and Helen were a pleasure to work with. Very transparent and communicative. Also occasionally dealt with Lucy and Caila. They were brilliant as well.I would like to say Thank you to the entire Carmody Moran team.Kenneth

My partner and I recently made the acquisition of our first home and it was a lengthy and difficult process, due to the fact we were buying from a receiver.In such difficult cases, you will need a legal representation as competent and professional as Carmody Moran Solicitors on your side.We were primarily dealing with Stephanie who gave us regular updates, helped us understand what is happening and what to do. We felt our interest always came first which made every appointment with her something we looked forward to.We were also occasionally in contact with Lucy, Niamh and other brilliant members of the firm, all of whom provided an excellent level of support and knowledge in Stephanie's absence.I couldn't recommend Carmody Moran enough. I would like to give a heartfelt thank-you on behalf of myself and my partner to every one involved at the firm who helped us make our dream a reality. We will not hesitate to call upon your services again should the occasion arise.Andrew.
