Who can claim Glasgow City accident at work compensation?
Under UK law, you can make a claim if you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence. Your employer has a legal responsibility to adhere to health and safety regulations in place to reduce the risk of accidents; if you have been involved in an accident that occurred because they neglected this responsibility, you could be within your rights to claim.
For example, if your employer knew that scaffolding in place was not safe for use and yet did nothing to rectify it, you can claim compensation if you have fallen and suffered injuries.
How long do I have to claim Glasgow city accident at work compensation?
You can claim compensation immediately following an accident, as there is no minimum amount of time required to wait. However, there is a maximum time limit, meaning you have up to three years from the date of the accident in which to make a claim.
How much can I claim in Glasgow City accident at work compensation?
You can make a claim for compensation for the injury, as well as money you have lost in income or have spent because of the injury, the emotional anguish it has caused you, and more.
The nature and seriousness of the injury itself will also be a factor in how much you receive.
