There is nothing worse than being let down by someone you trusted. But when you suffer an accident in the workplace, this is often exactly what has happened – your employer has let you down. We all go to work expecting to be safe, but for thousands of people every year, this is a false assumption.
When you are injured at work, the cost is often greater than a physical injury. The emotional toll of being let down by those who were in charge of your health and safety can be extensive. Many people struggle to return to work after they recover from their physical injuries.
An accident at work claim in Angus can be of great benefit
An accident at work claim in Angus could help you to feel that justice has been done and give you closure. You have been wronged by an employer you trusted, but through the compensation claim process, they have been held accountable for their shortcomings.
Importantly, your compensation claim can lead your employer to make changes in respect of health and safety at work, which could help keep your colleagues safe.
Who are you making a claim against?
It may help you to know that you are unlikely to be making a claim directly against your employer.

You and your employer are not likely to need to discuss your accident and injury at all.
