You may or may not find any injury solicitors in Newmachar, so how would you make a personal injury compensation claim if you were injured in an accident which you can prove was no fault of your own? You could call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of the helpline numbers below, and we could probably put you in touch with an injury solicitor who is an expert in handling claims such as yours.
We are a law firm that has been in business for more than 15 years and we work with experienced injury solicitors all over Scotland. They all work on a no-win, no-fee basis, which is very good news for their clients, as there is no longer any legal aid for personal injury compensation claim cases.
Do you need injury solicitors in Newmachar?
Injury solicitors in Newmachar, as well as those based elsewhere in the UK, don’t simply deal with claims for injuries arising from accidents. They can also help you file a claim if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove, with their help, was caused by another person’s negligence. Such an illness might be a work-related one, which you could prove was the result of your employer’s negligence. You have three years after your first diagnosis in which to file a personal injury compensation claim.
You also have three years to file a claim for injuries if the accident in which you were injured occurred in Britain. However, there are some accidents and injuries for which you only have two years to claim, so you should find out from injury solicitors in Newmachar, for example, or from us at Accident Advice Helpline, just how long you have in which to make your claim.
While you are at work, your employer has a legal duty to protect your health and safety. You should have a healthy working environment in which to work. Your employer should provide you with protective clothing and equipment so that you can carry out your work safely. He or she also has a responsibility to give you adequate training so that you can do your job safely.
You also have a duty to wear any protective gear you are issued with, and to follow the Health and Safety rules and regulations. If you have been given protective clothing but choose not to wear it, and you become ill, or are injured, you would not be able to prove your employer’s negligence caused your illness or injury.
