Accidents can happen anywhere but they are a particularly frequent occurrence in the workplace. They can result from a variety of hazards, including dangerous machinery, wet floors, insufficient training and supervision, and incorrect manual handling.
All workplace injuries, however minor, will have an impact on your ability to work, enjoy hobbies and look after your loved ones. In serious cases, you may even have to rely on friends, family or professional carers to help you with some of life’s most basic chores.
If you have suffered an injury as a result of your working environment, you should not accept the unacceptable – you should stand up for your rights and make a claim for your accident at work in Dundee through the team here at Accident Advice Helpline.
Receive compensation for your accident at work in Dundee
Your employer is under a duty to safeguard your physical and psychological well being while you are at work. This means they must identify and manage any risks to your health. In addition, your employer must possess employers’ liability insurance. This insurance is a legal requirement, and ensures that your employer can pay you compensation if you need to make a claim for an accident at work in Dundee caused by an unsafe working environment.

If you think you have a claim against your employer, rest assured that the solicitors here at Accident Advice Helpline are here to help you every step of the way. We want the best for you and your family, and we will work on a 100% ‘no win, no fee*’ basis so that you do not have to worry about the cost of pursuing your claim.
If you wish to make a claim through us, you have three years, starting from the date of your accident, in which to call our Freephone helpline and get the ball rolling. You could, in theory, commence your claim two years and 364 days after your accident but this is not recommended as it may take us some time to gather evidence in support of your claim.
With certain types of injuries, such as work-related disease cases, you may have longer than three years to start your claim. If you think this special clause may apply to your claim, please do not rest on your laurels – call our helpline right away on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone and let us commence your claim.
