Common incidents involve handling, lifting, carrying, slips, trips, falling objects, hand-tools, machinery and falls. Others are injured as a result of the repetitive nature of their work activities or the absence of appropriate training. Each year thousands of people become injured through accidents at work, causing them to be off work for a period of time. If you have been injured at work then Barry Healy & Company, Solicitors, Monaghan, can help.
