    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Can I claim for an accident during a meteorology project?

    If you have recently been injured whilst working on a meteorology project, you may be asking yourself ‘Can I claim for an accident during a meteorology project?’ Fortunately for anybody who has been a victim of this type of accident, it is an easy question to answer.

    You only have to pick up the phone and call the experts at Accident Advice Helpline to find out. If your accident occurred within the last three years and was not your fault, you could well be eligible to file a claim for compensation as payment for your physical and emotional injuries.

    What are the risks of working as a meteorologist?

    As you can imagine, there are some risks associated with professional meteorology, particularly if it involves extreme weather like severe storms or tornadoes. These latter activities, in particular, can be extremely dangerous if not handled correctly. If a company or organisation asks you to put yourself in a hazardous situation, they are responsible for your well-being.

    One of the most important things to remember when getting involved with extreme weather is frequency of contact. You must attempt to stay in contact with headquarters, or whomever is responsible for your operation, by any means possible. This does mean that you will need to be supplied with suitable equipment, usually at the cost of the company.

    How can injuries be avoided?

    The company or organisation that you work for has a duty of care towards you. This means that they are responsible for making sure that you get the relevant safety information, have the necessary skills to work in dangerous environments and are given the right equipment and protective clothing.

    If any of these elements are lacking, it could constitute a legal breach of this duty and you may be eligible to file a claim for compensation. You cannot claim for an accident that was the result of your own negligence, like a failure to adhere to clear safety guidelines and instructions, a failure to wear the right clothing, or an insistence on unreasonable or overly risky behaviour. You can make a claim, however, if the injuries were sustained through no fault of your own.

    Who should I talk to?

    At Accident Advice Helpline, our solicitors work on a no win, no fee’ basis. They are dedicated to making sure that you get the compensation that you deserve and will always seek the highest possible payout. If necessary, loss of earnings and costly medical bills will be taken into account as a part of your claim for financial remuneration.

    We operate a free, 24-hour helpline, so you can contact us and arrange an initial consultation at any time. You only have to pick up the phone and give us a call on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone. Or, you can text claim365 to 88010 for a call back from one of our specialist associates. It is time to take that first step on the road to recovery and you don’t have to do it without support.
