Lawyer in Peebles


Accidents at work are, unfortunately, all too common in Peebles. Every workplace has its own set of unique health and safety hazards, which, if ignored, can lead to serious personal injuries.

Your employer’s duty of care

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act, all employers have a duty of care towards their employees. This means that they must provide:

  • Safe systems of work
  • Safe premises in which to work
  • Suitable materials and equipment
  • Sufficient training and supervision
  • Competent staff

If your employer fails to fulfil his or her legal responsibilities, and you become injured through no fault of your own, you may be eligible to receive accident at work compensation.

Actions to take following an accident at work

If you are able to do so, you should collect as much information as possible at the time of your accident. At the very least, you should aim to obtain:

  • The names and contact details of any witnesses to your accident
  • Photographs of the accident scene
  • Photographs of your injuries

This information will aid your accident lawyer in Peebles in investigating the circumstances surrounding your claim.

Remember: your employer cannot legally dismiss you for collecting evidence or pursuing a compensation claim. If your employer does dismiss you on these grounds, you may have a case for unfair dismissal, which could entitle you to make a separate compensation claim.

Returning to work after an accident

While it may be tempting for you to rush back into work following your accident, you should take the time to let your body recover from the physical and emotional trauma. If you return to work too soon after your accident, you may hamper your recovery. If you are concerned about your finances, an accident lawyer in Peebles will help you to recoup the cost of your lost earnings and expenses through your compensation claim.
