Involved in an accident at work?

Health and safety regulations

Employers have a ‘duty of care’ to ensure that the working environment they run follows the correct procedures, meeting required health and safety regulations. Where appropriate, employees should be provided with the relevant safety equipment, advice and training for the tasks they are required to carry out.

Should you suffer an accident on a construction site, and your employer has neglected their obligations to provide necessary protection from the on-site risks and dangers, then you may be entitled to an accident claim. You should collect as much information and documentation as possible regarding what happened when the incident occurred, including details of any witnesses.

Speak to our Experienced Advisors

At Accident Helpline Scotland we are well aware that if you were involved in an incident at work and suffer an injury, it can be an extremely worrying time. Not only might you suffer injury, pain and discomfort, but your ability to earn a living for you and your family, can be put in jeopardy.

It is an employer's duty to ensure that a work place environment adheres to and follows the appropriate health and safety regulations and procedures. Employees should be provided with all necessary protection and safety equipment as well as any required training needed in order to perform the tasks that are required as part of the job.

Employers should not be putting their staff at any unnecessary risk, whether due to a lack of proper equipment, exposure to on-site dangers or insufficient training for the job or tasks. If you have been subjected to such dangers and suffered an accident as a result, either through the misconduct of proper safety regulations or simply down to negligence then you could be entitled to a claim for compensation.

We have advisors and personal injury solicitors who appreciate, and are experienced in work place accidents. They are available to discuss the details of your experience, and can help you potentially bring a compensation claim for your injuries, and the loss of earnings you may have, or are likely to, incur from your accident.
