    Accident claim in Dumfries and Galloway


    Top tips on dealing with your employer if you are making an accident claim in Dumfries and Galloway against them

    Have you suffered an injury because of an incident in the workplace that was not your fault? If so, you will rightly be thinking about making an accident claim in Dumfries and Galloway against your employer. This is something that a lot of people worry about. After all, they do not want to cause friction with their employer, but they of course want to get the money they are entitled to. So, what is the best approach to take? Read on for some top tips…

    Make sure you report the incident

    First thing is first; make sure you report the accident to your employer and/or safety representative. It is imperative to handle everything above board and this is one of the things you need to do. All employers are required to have an accident book by law. They need to report all incidents in here. That is why it is so important to tell them what has happened.

    Don’t make a big issue out of it

    Handle everything professionally. Don’t make a big issue about it or constantly bring it up. The best thing for both parties is for the situation to be handled in a quick and smooth manner.

    Have a quality law firm on your side

    Last but not least, the best thing you can do is employ the services of a top quality law company. They will make sure that the whole process is handled as professionally as possible. They will also happily provide you with advice on how to go about your accident claim  and how to deal with your employer.
