Anyone who has an accident at work in East Dunbartonshire, and who wishes to raise a personal injury claim should go to our website at Accident Advice Helpline and browse through the web-pages to check out the likely validity of their claim.
The criteria that qualifies an accident in the workplace for compensation
The law states that if you’ve been injured and someone else is to blame, you’re entitled to financial compensation. But there are other criteria that also need to be satisfied in order to qualify any claim for compensation. These include:
- The blame for the accident, incident, or circumstances in which the accident that caused the injury took place, must be attributable to a third party.
- The accident/incident/injury must have happened within the three years immediately preceding the date of the claim.
- The injury and/or its consequences must be of a serious enough nature to warrant the raising of a claim.
- The availability of medical proof to substantiate the nature of the injury will help to underpin any claim.
The importance of appointing your own injury claim solicitor for an accident at work in East Dunbartonshire
If you’re involved in an accident at work in East Dunbartonshire that meets the necessary criteria shown above, you’re entitled to raise a claim for compensation. In order to protect your own best interests, you should consider appointing one of the leading specialist claim solicitors here in the UK, like us at Accident Advice Helpline, to represent you.
You may well find you might be approached by your employer’s insurance company directly. Just bear in mind however that their first interests will be to their client (i.e. your employer), and themselves, and they will therefore try to minimise the amount of compensation they offer you.
On the other hand, working with somebody like Accident Advice Helpline will promote your own best interests, and work towards obtaining the maximum amount of compensation payable.

Anyone can use it before launching a claim. It’s a type of “pre-claim” tool and won’t cost you a penny.
