Are you wondering what the most common injuries vets experience are? Being a vet can be very dangerous, and a huge amount of injuries inflicted on vets happen when they are restraining animals. Accidents can also occur when vets are treating animals and when they are lifting objects. Some of the most common injuries vets experience at work include bites, lacerations, scratches, cuts, bruises and contusions.
What are the most common injuries vets experience?
At Accident Advice Helpline, we have been helping vets get compensation for injuries that weren’t their fault since we were first founded in 2000. You do not need to give us any money to start a claim with us and we famously work on a no-win, no-fee* basis. We always try to get you the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries, so if you have lost money after being forced to take time off work recovering, you can expect this to be reflected in the amount of compensation you receive.
You can find out whether you’re likely to get a green light on claiming and how much you could be getting by taking our 30-second test online. If you would prefer to skip this step and speak to an adviser directly, you can do so by giving us a call. Though working as a vet can be a hazardous experience, this does not mean you simply have to accept absolutely everything that’s thrown at you as being part of the job.
Have you been hurt on a farm?
We have vast experience when it comes to getting compensation for vets that have been injured both in and out of their practice. Vets, in general, spend a great deal of time visiting farms and pets in their homes when they require medical assessments and treatments. Those that work in rural areas may find themselves paying regular visits to farms. There are many hazards that could cause injuries on farmers’ land. A vet may be hurt after a fall from a height or by an animal kicking them. They may be attacked by loose animals and could even contract foot and mouth disease whilst on farms. The farmer has a responsibility to keep you safe whilst you are at work and will be liable if anything does happen to you that could have been avoided.
Call 0800 689 0500 (landline) or 0333 500 0993 (mobile) to find out more.
