You are owed a duty of care

Whether the incident occurred as a result of carelessness, recklessness or some other form of negligence, employers and site managers owe all workers and visitors a duty of care. Our solicitors have helped clients from all over Dundee and the Firth of Tay claim for a range of incidents, including those related to the following:

  • Failure to provide Personal Protective Equipment
  • Faulty equipment
  • Inadequate training
  • Unsafe working environment

Of course, employers cannot prevent every accident. However, they do have a duty to take all reasonable steps to prevent accidents from occurring. This includes meeting legal and statutory obligations, providing risk assessments, and implementing a range of protections and preventative measures.

The most common work accidents

According to the Health and Safety Executive, Scotland has some of the UK's highest rates for serious and fatal work accident injuries, with rates of minor and moderate injuries mostly comparable to the national average.

Some of the most common Dundee work accidents include the following:

  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Construction site accidents
  • Falls from height – e.g. those involving scaffolds or ladders
  • Accidents involving machinery
  • Exposure to dangerous chemicals and other substances
  • Manual handling injuries
  • Forklift accidents
  • Accidents involving inadequately maintained machinery

However, it is worth remembering that there are also a significant number of compensable accidents that occur outside of the most hazardous settings. For example, although environments like schools, hospitals and offices are not thought of as dangerous places, accidents can and do occur. Whatever your workplace or nature of your accident, if another party's negligence was a factor, you may well be entitled to compensation.
