    Can I claim for an accident as a banker?


    Due to the misconception that accident compensation is only awarded to those holding dangerous positions or working in hazardous environments, many call us and ask ‘can I claim for an accident as a banker?’ The answer is yes, of course. Despite the common belief that they are very safe, numerous people injure themselves within office environments each year.

    As a worker in such an environment, a banker is perfectly entitled to compensation as long as they can prove that they were not responsible for the accident the injury resulted from. In fact, anyone can be held responsible – an employer, colleague or member of the public – for any given work accident and, if this can be proven, then the victim should be compensated.

    What if I had an accident as a banker?

    Banks are often fast-paced working environments with lots of people moving around each other, so it’s not difficult to see how you can experience an accident as a banker. During busy periods, pathways may become blocked and objects placed dangerously in people’s way. If the employer fails to ensure that pathways remain clear and easily navigational, they could be held responsible.

    It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that bankers are allowed frequent breaks and have a workload that does not compromise their natural endurance. If the employer has failed to do this, by forcing an employee to work for long unbroken stretches at the computer, then the employee could be entitled to compensation if an injury occurs related to this. Based on the circumstances specified, Accident Advice Helpline could be able to assist with a compensation claim.
