Some work places can be extremely dangerous if you are working for example in construction, working at height or working offshore. Your employer has a duty to ensure that you are always safe while you are at work . You must be provided with safety training and the correct equipment to do your job. If your employer has not done this and you have suffered an accident, then you may be able to claim compensation.
The amount of compensation you will be able to claim is dependent on the individual circumstances of your claim. Your lawyer will be able to advise on this subsequent to obtaining further details about your claim. You can claim for things such as loss of earnings if you are not able to work because of your injury, medical bills if you have had to seek private treatment, loss and enjoyment of life is also something else that you may be able to claim.
If your injury was due to another person’s negligence then you may be able to claim against them. If your injury was due to lack of training or not being provided with the correct safety equipment then you may be able to claim against your employer. Our lawyers will advise you once they know the details of your injury claim.
Our team of claim specialists are on hand throughout the working week to answer any questions or help you understand the claims process.
The dangers at your workplace are unique to where you work. If you work in an office for example, then the dangers are tripping on loose cables on the floor or an electric shock from your computer. If you work in a warehouse, then you might be hurt by a forklift truck or if items fall on you. If you work in a kitchen you might suffer from burns if the correct safety clothing has not been provided.
Injuries you might suffer include, broken bones, head or spinal injuries, cuts and bruises, burns or scarring and in the most serious of cases you might suffer from paralysis or death.
In Scotland you have three years from the date of the accident to make a claim. However, the best time to make a claim is as soon as you are able too.
There is no set time on how long it will take to settle your claim. The duration of your claim is usually dependent on the seriousness of your accident and your individual claim.
