Accidents when working abroad

In an increasingly global economy, many people work outside the countries they usually reside in. Our Foreign and Travel Law Department has experience of helping people claim compensation after they have been injured while working abroad.

Every year we help thousands of people injured at work. Everyone is entitled to work in a safe environment and employers have legal responsibilities and duties of care to anyone working for them. Accidents whilst working abroad are a complex area of the law but one where we can use our specific knowledge and expertise to help.

Time limit for work accident abroad claim

It is important to note that the time limit for making a work accident abroad claim following a workplace accident in another country might be different from the three year period which applies in Scotland.  If you have been injured while working abroad in another EU country, you can make a claim through the Scottish courts. However, time limits in some EU countries are shorter than in Scotland and the amount of compensation you are entitled to may be determined by the legal system of the country where the workplace accident happened.

If you are involved in an accident at work in a non-EU country, it may not be possible to pursue a work accident abroad claim throughout the Scottish courts but our specialist solicitors have experience of working across different legal jurisdictions and have access to a worldwide network of experts and personal injury lawyers who can help us help you through a claim for compensation.

We are here to help if you have been injured while working abroad. We have a specialist department and offices across Scotland. Our expertise is recognised by Chambers Guide to Legal profession and Legal 500, the leading independent guides in this area.
