Can I claim for an accident as an aid worker?

If you had an accident as an aid worker in the last three years which you did not cause yourself and which required medical assistance, you could potentially claim financial compensation for your personal injury.

What is the likelihood that I can claim for an accident as an aid worker?

Working as an aid worker can be very satisfying. When catastrophes, natural disasters or other large-scale incidents occur, you may be one of the first people called on to give help. Helping victims to regain a sense of normality, or at least easing their physical or psychological pain, is a worthwhile end in itself. Of course, this should not mean that you should have to accept injuries caused by other people. You may have been unfairly exposed to risks that could have been easily foreseen, for example, because of the negligence or absent-mindedness of others. The aid organisation you work for may have knowingly sent you to incidents it knew posed serious dangers to aid workers. The equipment you worked with may have been poorly maintained, or underinvestment in your aid working environment may have led to your accident. Perhaps your injuries were caused by your colleagues or others on site. Check if you have a potential claim by contacting Accident Advice Helpline.
