Common Workplace Accidents

Employers owe their employees a duty of care. If you have had an accident at work because your employer failed in their duty of care you have a potential claim for workplace compensation. Common causes of employers not meeting their duty of care and paying compensation for workplace accidents include:

  • Not conducting risk assessments
  • Not following health and safety legislation
  • Not making sure equipment and machinery is in safe working order and maintained
  • Not providing employees with regular health and safety training, such as heavy lifting training
  • Not reducing risks as much as reasonably possible, such as tripping hazards
  • Not supplying sufficient personal protective equipment (PPE)

Common Workplace Injuries

The expert accident at work team has extensive experience in getting employees the compensation they deserve after sustaining injuries at work from:

  • Accidents involving machinery and vehicles
  • Accidents caused by the actions of an irresponsible work colleague
  • Construction and building site accidents
  • Defective equipment
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals and substances
  • Falls from heights
  • Farm accidents
  • Manual handling, lifting or carrying accidents
  • Trips, slips and falls
  • Unsafe working practices and procedures including dangerous machinery and defective and poorly maintained equipment

  • Building sites

Chloe Newsome dad been dealing with my family court cases and my divorce proceedings. She was a pleasure to work with and is very realistic in her advice. I was suspicious of solicitors in the lead up to my cases but Chloe went above and beyond what I could have expected, offering impartial advice and encouraging alternative ways for me to move forward. Can’t thank her enough.

Client Testimonials

Two departments one fantastic service

Frank, could I just take a moment to thank you for everything you and Jayne have done. Throughout the whole experience, I was guided by yourself and on occasions, it became quite complicated with my situation however I must express how professional you are and how well you navigated and negotiated the final outcome. Also, Jayne was always a pleasure to speak with and again professional and communicative at every stage.  Without a doubt the best Solicitors practice I have ever dealt with the results Macks Solicitors get, speak for themselves.

A positive outcome in a complex case

Rebecca Montague Dealt with my claim and right from our first conversation she made me feel confident that she would do her best for me. Rebecca was genuinely interested to find out how I actually felt about each stage of the case and I was involved from start to finish. If Rebecca was off any query I had would be dealt with by her colleague or secretary. I have had an extremely positive relationship with this firm and was lucky in that I had a positive outcome in a complex case but this is not the reason I rate this firm a 5. I can only speak from experience and so Rebecca and her team get a 5 because it was always about me and they didn’t give up when things got difficult. Thank you I would have no hesitation in using your firm again.
