Work accidents

When serious accidents occur in the workplace, there are a number of tasks that must be taken care of, both of a practical and legal nature. Uncertainty about how the company should react can make a difficult situation even more challenging. Our emergency response team consists of an interdisciplinary group of lawyers in areas such as employment law and construction law.

Advice from our emergency response team

A work accident always comes as a surprise. However, when it does happen, both effective and structured advice is required. Our emergency response team regularly assists clients when accidents occur. We have extensive experience with crisis management and coordinated consultancy services, ensuring the implementation of adequate and risk-reducing measures. In addition, our lawyers assist with a number of preventive measures to make individual companies better equipped to handle occupational accidents.

The work of our emergency response team includes the following:

  • advice related to plans for handling incidents
  • dialogue with the Norwegian Labour Inspection Authority, the police and other public authorities
  • communication and information flow
