Accidents at work are commonplace, and those who suffer personal injury as a result of an accident at work should be compensated. Employers must ensure the work environment is safe at all times and to ensure that team members are adequately equipped and trained. Most accidents at work are caused as a result of negligence, and the injured person should be compensated accordingly.

Your employer has a legal duty to ensure you’re safe at work. In practice, this means they have a responsibility to:

  • Make sure you’re properly trained.
  • Provide you with suitable work and personal protective equipment.
  • Undertake risk assessments.
  • Manage business activities to minimise risks to your health and safety.
  • Provide safe working systems.

Although legislation requires employers to create a safe and free from hazards environment, employees still suffer from personal injury and ill health, which are often caused by hazardous work conditions within a workplace. Suffering at the hands of someone else’s negligence can impact individuals and families greatly. It is, therefore, necessary to ensure you have the appropriate guidance to get the maximum compensation you are entitled to.

Why it’s Important to Make a Claim

Many workplaces include inherent risks, and it is the employer’s responsibility to manage and reduce risk. If they haven’t done this, they could be liable for claims for any accidents suffered at work.

Reports suggest that individuals who have suffered an accident or illness within their workplace are most likely placed under financial and emotional hardship. In some circumstances, depending on the extent of the injuries suffered, people are either under pressure to make significant changes to their lifestyles and sometimes even professions or simply are unable to go back to work.

The Personal Injury Claims Process

When you claim with Jones Whyte, our team of work injury compensation specialists will support you every step of the way, providing advice and making sure you know what to expect. To begin with, one of our work injury lawyers will take your statement. This will help establish exactly what happened, whether it was a single incident or a pattern of negligence. We will then thoroughly investigate the incident. This can include gathering evidence from your side, such as:

It may also involve looking at workplace policies and training, to see if these adequately manage the risk of injury. Finally, the other side is informed of the claim, and the appropriate amount of compensation is calculated. Very few claims go to court. However, if court action is necessary, our work injury compensation lawyers are tough and experienced litigators.

Types of Workplace Injury Claims

Workplace Injury Solicitors Glasgow

Some workplaces are inherently more risky than others. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t claim for an injury suffered in a workplace seen as “safe”, especially if it wasn’t your fault.

For example, if you trip and fall in an office because the flooring is damaged, then you have every right to recover compensation for any harm incurred.

At Jones Whyte, we focus on client care and have helped workers in all sorts of industries make personal injury claims. Not only can this ensure you get the compensation you deserve, but it can also give you access to medical treatment to aid your recovery. It can also ensure that lessons are learned, workplace processes are improved and people don’t suffer injuries in the same way in the future.

We have a proven track record, so speak to us straight away if you have had an injury at work. There are time limits for making personal injury claims, so it is important to start the claims process before these expire.

No Win No Fee

We offer a ‘no win no fee service’. This means that you do not have to cover any outlays that we incur concerning the working progress of your case if your solicitor is unable to secure compensation for you. If you are however awarded damages, the legal fees are mostly covered by a percentage of your compensation.

Each claim is different and therefore determining how much it will be worth depends on individual circumstances. Generally, factors that affect the amount of compensation are the extent of your injuries, the cost you have incurred as a result of the accident as well the value of the losses occurring from your injuries.

The amount of compensation you will receive depends on the negotiations between your solicitor and the insurance companies. In circumstances where there are court proceedings, the court will exercise its discretion when establishing damages for the Pursuer.
