    Compensation for workplace injuries in Scotland


    Figures released recently by the Health and Safety Executive revealed that the number of workplace-related injuries and deaths has actually fallen in 2013-2014, but this doesn’t mean that more can’t be done to improve workplace safety. Between 2013 and 2014, 6,871 people were injured at work in Scotland, with 20 people killed.

    Employers, contractors and self-employed professionals all take responsibility for safety in the workplace, and whilst it is your employer’s duty to keep you safe at work, employees do take some responsibility for their own safety too. Workplace injuries in Scotland don’t just happen in industry, they can happen in almost any sector, whether you work in a legal office or in a busy factory with heavy machinery.

    Workplace injuries in Scotland may have decreased this year, but your employer still has a duty to keep you safe at work, and if they fail to do so and you are injured, you could claim personal injury compensation for your pain and suffering, as well as any loss of earnings. Don’t forget that a three year time limit applies for all personal injury claims – miss this and you may be unable to claim the compensation you deserve.

    Where do workplace injuries occur?

    It’s easy to think that it’s just factory and industry workers who could be involved in a workplace accident – there is the potential for accidents to occur no matter where you work. From suffering a slip, trip or fall in an office to being affected by industrial deafness, workplace injuries can occur in any role. You could claim compensation for your injuries if it can be proven that your accident occurred as a direct result of your employer’s negligence.
