Accident Lawyer in Fife


When might you need an accident lawyer in Fife?

If you live in Fife and have been the victim of an accidental injury as a consequence of your employer not taking the right safety procedures to protect you, then an accident lawyer in Fife is there to help claim the compensation you are legally entitled to.

Injuries when employees have tripped up on an unforeseen object have become a common occurrence in recent years, and sometimes serious injuries are caused because of them. All accidents at work should be reported to the employer immediately, but serious accidents need reporting to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) as well.

If I need an accident lawyer in Fife what should I do?

The law says that an employer has a duty to protect their workers while they are at work. Employers must evaluate each job in terms of risk, and do whatever is required to keep the employees safe in their work. Failure to do so means the employee is entitled to claim compensation.

This is easier for workers than employers might realise. All they need do is get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline, and we will handle the claim for them, making sure they are paid for their injuries and any earnings they have lost as well as any extra expenses they have had to bear and anything else that the accident has led to.

Causes of accidents at work

There are many reasons accidents at work happen, and many of them could be avoided if only the right health and safety measures were in place. The accident could be caused by:

  • Spillages or obstacles in an area that should be kept clear
  • Not enough training given for machinery or equipment
  • Lack of protective clothing and safety gear such as hard hats
  • Faulty machinery or lack of safety guards
  • Faulty or improperly erected scaffolding
  • Trailing wires or lose flooring
  • Unlit stairs or missing handrails

These are just a few causes of accidents at work, there are hundreds more, all of which your employer should be aware of if they are a potential hazard in your workplace.
