    Work injury compensation in Viewpark

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Viewpark

    Viewpark was once a leading centre of industry in the North Lanarkshire area of Scotland, with many businesses still remaining in the area today. Whilst once known for being a mining town, there are now many modern industries operating in the area.

    This means however, like most towns with thriving businesses, there are risks which can cause accidents at work. If you live in the area, it’s important to know what options are available to you following an accident at work, and what to do in order to seek work injury compensation in Viewpark.

    What counts as an accident at work?

    There are many incidents which could be classed as an accident at work. Your employer has a duty to protect its workers from these accidents through following strict health and safety guidelines and ensuring the well-being of its workers. Some common accidents which can occur in the workplace include:

    • Burns and shocks as a result of faulty electrical equipment
    • Slips, trips and falls as a result of spillages, hazardous objects, loose cabling and more
    • Hearing loss through excessive noise
    • Back injuries from manual handling
    • Injuries caused through damaged structures.

    No matter what type of accident you suffer, in order to claim work injury compensation in Viewpark, you must be able to demonstrate that you have both suffered an injury, and that your employer’s negligence was at fault.
