Jurisdiction and Damages in Claims for Injuries Sustained while Working Abroad

If you were injured while working in an EU-country, then it might be possible to pursue your claim through the Scottish courts. However, if your accident or illness was sustained while you were in a country that is outside the EU, then it might not be possible to pursue a claim through the Scottish courts. That is why it is good to have the expert solicitors at Jones Whyte on your side. We are experienced in working across multiple jurisdictions and we can cut through the complexities to ensure that your claim can continue with minimal fuss.

While in Scotland the time limit for bringing a claim for personal injury is usually three years, it might be different abroad. That’s whys it’s important to get in contact with us as soon as possible so that we have the best chance of pursuing your claim successfully.
