You have 3 years to make a compensation claim in Scotland, if you have had an accident at work.

This begins from the date of the accident or discovery of an occupational medical condition.

It is important to start legal proceedings straight away following a workplace injury. We believe responding quickly is important, since it can help gather information quickly and easily if an accident happened or illness is reported as soon as possible.

Our solicitors will also give guidance on the exceptions to the 3 year limit, which include:

What Are Early Compensation Payments?

Our personal injury solicitors may be able to arrange an early compensation payment.

Also known as interim payment, the payment is part of your compensation which the responsible party agrees to pay. This advance payment is only possible if your opponent admits responsibility, for the workplace injuries you have suffered.

Early compensation is important since it will ease any difficult condition and situation you may find yourself in, following a workplace injury. The law requires employers to pay you a portion of your salary when recovering from a work related injury or illness. However, this may not be enough when considering any added expenses, after an accident at work has taken place.

Some of the expenses the interim payment can help cover include:

• Additional care and domestic services bills
• Medical treatment and rehabilitation services
• Mobility or hearing aids, or equipment
• Adaptations or home renovations due to your changed condition

Our solicitors have years of experience and will help you get an early compensation payment, that will help you through the difficult time.

Everyday We Help The People Of Scotland Claim What They Deserve

Here are just some of the people we've helped this year, using our Claims Management process.

Mike's Story...

I tripped on a piece of broken pavement in my local Borough. My injuries required surgery and although I am retired, I still wanted my local council to take responsibility for their negligence and pursued a personal injury claim with Nevis Beck. They were very professional throughout the whole process and managed to get me fair compensation without any hassle or complications due to their experience in dealing with compensation claims like mine. I would highly recommend them to anyone who has suffered an injury through no fault of their own!

Jane's Story...

I recently suffered an injury at work that was caused by my colleagues carelessness, and I was out of work for six months as a result. As soon as I hired Nevis Beck, they were incredibly helpful, contacting my employer on my behalf and keeping me up to date with the progress of my claim every step of the way. In the end, they won me an excellent settlement from my employer, which will allow me to take further time off work to fully recover, without worrying about money – something that would have been very difficult if it weren’t for their help.

Who Pays Your Compensation After An Accident At Work?

As you can guess from the information above, the insurance company of the responsible employer, will pay your workplace compensation. This is a liability insurance cover that pays damages to any employee, who is injured in the workplace.

You'll rarely be involved directly with your employer since your solicitor will negotiate with your employer's insurers. By not personally being involved with your employer, you can eliminate any fears of damaging your relationship with your employer or worry about your job security.

To protect both employees and employers in Scotland workplaces, it is a legal requirement for almost all industries, companies and businesses with employees, to hold employers' liability cover. This encourages you to seek compensation if you should ever become injured in the workplace, in Scotland.

We advise you to be cautious of early compensation offers since they tend to be lower than what you actually deserve. Our reliable personal injury solicitors can help you establish how much compensation you could be entitled too, depending on your situation.

Please see below common questions that are asked by clients, with answers provided by members of our specialist team.

I Knew The Equipment I Was Using Was Faulty But Used It Anyway. I Suffered A Personal Injury. Can I Still Claim?

It is possible to be held accountable for using equipment that you knew was faulty but continued to use anyway. If you still wish to make a workplace injury claim, you will require sound legal advice. Our experienced solicitors may be able to help you find a way to claim. Our panel of solicitors are based across Scotland, so we will try and find the best and most local Solicitor to help you with your claim.

I Haven't Been To My GP. Can I Still Claim?

If you haven't received any medical treatment for the injuries you sustained, you can still make a claim. However, without any medical evidence, the likelihood of you receiving any compensation is very low. For anyone whose injury symptoms are ongoing, it is not too late to see your GP. You can then submit your medical records as evidence.

My Employer Is Denying Responsibility For My Accident. Will This Affect My Claim?

You have the legal right to seek compensation for a workplace injury, regardless of whether your employer accepts or denies liability. Employers have liability insurance providers and most are advised not to accept responsibility for workplace injuries. Nevertheless, with the help of a competent legal expert, you can successfully claim compensation.
