The small and scenic village of Tomatin on the River Findhorn in the Scottish Highlands is perhaps most famous for its whiskey industry in the form of Tomatin Distillery Co Ltd.
Unfortunately however, such an illustrious point of pride can also spell misfortune for someone else. Workplaces such as distilleries can be dangerous for employees and lend themselves to injury all too easily. Slips, falls and machinery accidents can all have devastating consequences for employees as well as lead to financial trouble due to loss of earnings.
All employers have a duty of care towards their workers and are obliged to provide them with a safe working environment. However, accidents often occur whether due to ineffective safety measures or downright carelessness on the part of employers and employees alike. Unlike other accidents, people can often feel guilty or frightened at the prospect of making an injury claim in Tomatin from their workplace, as people rely on their jobs for income, and do not want to have a bad relationship with their employer in the future.
However, if you suffer a workplace injury that was not your fault, you certainly should seek compensation. Injuries such as sprains, burns or even broken bones can all occur in the workplace and should not be taken lightly. If your injury is serious enough, you may find yourself out of work for a long time which can have a harsh impact on your finances, leaving you both out of work and out of pocket.
Thankfully, liability insurance makes this a bit easier as you don’t have to worry about your claim affecting your employer directly.
