Accidents at Work

Every employer has a duty to look after the health, safety and welfare of employees whilst they are at work. Unfortunately, many accidents happen that could have been avoided, such as lack of training, faulty work equipment, lifting and carrying, or slips and trips.

Suffering an injury at work can have serious consequences, both financially and emotionally. If you have suffered an accident at work that was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation.

NewLaw Scotland's personal injury specialists are dedicated to getting the best results for their clients following an accident at work.
