There are many ways in which you may have been injured in your place of work. Slipping and tripping is the most common cause of most injuries in UK workplaces, according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the UK Slip Resistance Group (UKSRG). In the period 2016/2017, over 25% of non-fatal injuries to employees were due to a slip, trip or fall on the same level. Slips at work can also lead to other accidents, such as injury from machinery, burns and falls from height.  

We regularly help clients make compensation claims for accidents at work, including for: 

What are the responsibilities of my employer? 

Whilst employees have a duty to take reasonable care of themselves and others who could be affected by their actions, an employer also has a duty under the Health and Safety at work Act 1974 to ensure the health and safety of all employees, and anyone who could be affected by their work. This act is designed to reduce the risk of any accidents or injuries occurring and requires employers to create policies for keeping the workplace clean and free from debris, maintaining floors, buildings and equipment, and providing adequate training and equipment to employees and visitors. Where employers fail to meet their health & safety duties, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.  

How can you claim against an employer for a fall at work? 

If you have been involved in an accident at work, it is important that you report the accident to your employer, ensure that an accident report form is completed, and the incident recorded in an accident book. You should contact a specialist firm such as Calio Claims who will then guide you through the process of bringing a claim.  

How long do I have to make a claim?  

In Scotland, you have three years from the date of the incident to pursue a claim for personal injury, so you should seek advice as quickly as possible to allow time for investigations. 

Our specialist solicitors can assist you to obtain compensation for injury, as well as helping with rehabilitation and aftercare, recovering the cost of care, and pursuing any loss of earnings.
