    Accident at Work in Dunfermline

    Some occupations are notorious for being dangerous, but even “safe” professions can result in serious injuries. It is the duty of your employer to minimise the risks of accidents in your workplace, and if you are injured on the job as a result of their failure to protect you from harm, it is likely that you will be entitled to an accident at work compensation claim.

    To improve your chances of receiving full and fair compensation for your accident at work in Dunfermline, you may wish to consider hiring one of the personal injury lawyers here at Accident Advice Helpline. Our lawyers will get you the compensation you are entitled to whilst working on a 100% no win, no fee basis.

    Common causes of accident at work injuries

    Common causes of workplace injuries that could entitle you to claim accident at work compensation through our lawyers include:

    • Falls – Whether on the same level or from a higher level, falls are a leading cause of accidents at work. They can cause disastrous injuries such as head injuries, broken bones and, in the worst cases, paralysis.
    • Being struck by an object – Falling or flying objects can cause serious head, facial, brain, back and spinal cord injuries. Typical causes of these kinds of accidents include tools and materials that have not been stored properly.
    • Repetitive tasks – Repetitive tasks such as typing and assembly line work can damage the muscles, nerves and tendons in your upper limbs, causing symptoms such as pain, stiffness, tingling or cramp. These symptoms develop over time, rather than suddenly.

    If you win your claim against your employer, your compensation settlement will cover the cost of your medical treatments and pay for any earnings you have lost as a result of taking time off work. It will also reimburse you for mileage incurred through travelling to and from your GP’s surgery, hospital or pharmacy.
