One of Scotland’s 32 council areas, Aberdeenshire’s economy once depended on fishing, forestry and agriculture. However recently, the oil and gas industry has seen the local population boom – in fact, since 1975 it has grown by 50%. Most people living in Aberdeenshire commute to work in Aberdeen City or are employed offshore in the oil and gas industry. Some of these jobs could be dangerous, depending on your employer’s approach to health and safety. If you have been injured in an accident at work then you might be wondering if you can claim accident at work compensation in Aberdeenshire. The answer is probably, if you can answer yes to the following questions:
- Did your accident happen in the last three years?
- Did you seek medical attention for your injuries?
- Was somebody else to blame for your accident?
It may be that your employer could be held liable and ordered to pay you compensation, which could include compensation for your loss of earnings.
