    Top 5 potential accident claims for a postal worker


    As a law firm with years of experience in all areas of personal injury compensation including accidents at work, we at Accident Accident Advice Helpline have become experts in when it comes to identifying potential accident claims in the workplace. Since 2000, our expert legal team of solicitors and barristers have helped pursue compensation for those who have suffered a wrong where they were not to blame. In this article, we take a look at some potential work-accident claims for postal workers.

    • Slips, trips and falls
      Slipping tripping and falling is one of the most commonly reported injuries across all sectors of employment and postal workers are no exception. A slip, trip or fall can lead to serious injuries and it is essential to take measures to reduce the number of slips, trips and falls in the workplace.
    • Road traffic accidents
      For postal workers who normally serve a rural route, road traffic collisions are the most commonly reported form of accident. The narrow, winding roads in many rural areas can be extremely dangerous.
    • Attacks
      Postal workers have the unenviable task of delivering unwanted mail such as bills. Although uncommon, it is not unheard of for a postal worker to be attacked out of frustration when delivering letters.
    • Animal attacks
      Although somewhat cliched, many postal workers are subjected to attacks by pets such as guard dogs.
    • Repetitive Strain Injury
      A Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) occurs when the same muscle groups have been subjected to a constant and excessive strain over an extended period of time. RSIs can occur when performing tasks that require repetitive movements, such as delivering letters. This causes postal workers to be exposed to the risk of suffering an RSI.
    • Neck, back and shoulder injuries
      Postal workers not only deliver letters, but also heavy packages. The strain involved in heavy lifting, causes postal workers to be exposed to the risk of suffering a neck, back or shoulder injury.
