Accidents At Work*

Finghín O’Driscoll Solicitors provides clients with straight-forward and experienced accidents at work solicitors* in Cork.
Accidents at work are very common. They range from death, to the ‘not so serious’. The Government established the Health and Safety Authority to try to reduce the number of injuries sustained at work every year. Accidents can happen in every type of work. Some, more obvious industries, like construction or farming, carry clear dangers. At the same time, it is just as possible for a serious accident to occur in an office or shop.
