The town of Paisley lies just seven miles west of Glasgow city centre and is sometimes known as the largest town in Scotland as it has never achieved full city status, despite a population of some 76,000 people. Formerly known for its booming textile industry (which gave birth to the Paisley pattern, of course) it is now better known economically for being the administrative hub for Renfrewshire Council. If you have suffered an accident in Paisley at work or visiting the area, let Accident Advice Helpline know what happened to you so that you can claim compensation if negligence was the cause.
Injured at work in Paisley?
In past times there were a lot more factories in Paisley, not just as part of the weaving and textile industries, but also car manufacturing, food and whisky production. Nowadays, a large percentage of the town’s population works in civic employment in the headquarters of Renfrewshire Council, the Paisley campus of West College Scotland, the biggest campus of the University of the West of Scotland, and the Royal Alexandra Hospital.
Although not as dangerous as working in a factory in Victorian times, there is always the possibility of injury in any industry or workplace if health and safety procedures are not followed. An accident in Paisley can be caused in numerous different ways, but when it comes to compensation it must be possible to prove that negligence was a factor. Injuries in the workplace are sometimes caused by a lack of care by employers, and if you think this is what caused your accident, a call to Accident Advice Helpline is a great idea.
Did you suffer an accident in Paisley?
Some people get injured at work and just think it’s just part of the job. Maybe they receive sick pay or their employer ‘takes care of it’. But the truth is that people are entitled to be safe at work and if an oversight or outright negligence by an employer causes a member of staff to get injured, there should be repercussions that will not only help the injured party recover, but also perhaps prevent such an injury happening again.
