    Making an injury claim in Uddingston

    Factory work is prominent in the town of Uddingston in South Lanarkshire in Scotland, which is famous for its production. Unfortunately, factories are also a prime location for work related accidents, so it is no surprise that the majority of accidents in the area are work related.

    Tripping over materials, being injured by machinery and muscle strain are just some of the injuries and ailments that can occur whilst working at a factory through no fault of the worker. If you have experienced a work related injury in the last three years that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation if you make an injury claim in Uddingston.

    Many people choose not to pursue legitimate claims due to feeling of loyalty of fear of their employer. However, employers have liability insurance to cover them in such cases and it is illegal for your employer to dismiss you for bringing a claim against you. If you have suffered an accident due to your employer or fellow employees negligence, it is crucial that you pursue a claim so you can prevent future injuries.

    Injuries that can occur in the workplace include but are not limited to the following:

    • Sprains
    • Broken bones
    • Burns
    • Back ailments

    Such injuries and others like these impact upon your ability to work and can often lead to a loss of earnings, putting you out of pocket. Aside from this, mounting expenses such as medical bills, child care costs and perhaps even home care costs all add up, putting a strain on your finances and possibly leading you into debt.
