Being employed as a highway serviceman can be dangerous. It is not uncommon for our team to receive a call enquiring, “Can I claim as a highway serviceman?” If you have occasion to seek help with filing a claim as a highway serviceman, you should call Accident Advice Helpline to obtain information about your specific claim and the steps to take to ensure that you have a legitimate and, ultimately, a successful case. Our expert team will assist you in filing the appropriate paperwork and presenting all of your information in the proper and most expedient manner.
Receiving professional advice is vital if you have suffered an injury on the job. Injuries sustained by highway servicemen can be temporary or permanent and could even be fatal if the results of the injury are not immediate. Purchasing insurance in advance is a wise move. It is often offered by employers or individual agencies and should cover all aspects of the job that may cause you to have an accident. In the event of an accident that may have been caused by another party, it is important to obtain expert legal advice before you file a claim for compensation.
Accidents can happen at any time, despite the fact that the injured person may have been following proper procedures. While we are unable to undo the injury, we can assist in taking steps to right any wrongs that may have been done in a legal sense. If you have had such an injury, call our 24-hour free helpline on 0800 689 0500 to obtain access to our team of expert lawyers who are able to walk you through the necessary steps to file your claim as a highway serviceman.
There are many things that can be responsible for the injury of a highway serviceman. The job requires a great deal of physical labour in relation to site preparation, bridge and other structural construction, as well as street paving and resurfacing. Each of these jobs poses a potential hazard to the worker. As with all jobs, employers are responsible for ensuring that healthy and safety codes are implemented and followed by their employees at all times. There may be an occasion, however, when an accident occurs due to faulty equipment or negligence on behalf of another party. It is our job to appoint a legal expert trained in determining liability and to assess your situation.
