The former mining village of Gorebridge lies on the River Gore in Midlothian, Scotland. Gorebridge made history as the first gunpowder mill operating in Scotland, starting operations as early as 1794. Working in ammunitions or gunpowder manufacturing in those days must have been extremely risky, and no doubt many workers would have suffered either substantial injuries or loss of life in the early days of gunpowder mills. If you were injured in any type of factory work, there was no legal course a worker could take to ask employers for compensation. Thankfully, today employers are forced to take much greater care of their employees’ lives and welfare.
Sadly, there are still employers who don’t take health and safety seriously. Cutting corners in an economic downturn or pure greed often causes accidents at work where the worker is not at fault, but the employer’s negligence is the underlying reason for the accident. If you were injured in an accident with faulty equipment and machinery that should have been repaired by an expert but wasn’t, you can make a compensation claim in Gorebridge and potentially receive compensation.
If your employer didn’t maintain their premises to a safe standard and you slipped and fell, you can claim compensation for your injuries, providing that your accident happened within the last three years.
