What can I claim for?
Working as a receptionist does not sound as though it is a dangerous profession, but there are a number of things that can go wrong while you are working. You may be expected to lift boxes and move things around when there are deliveries, and if you have not been shown how to do this properly, you could find that you end up with injuries. Manual handling training should be given to all members of staff regardless of their duties, and if this is missed then there could be problems. In addition, there may be things that are left in your way and you could trip over them. Somebody in the building should have been given responsibility for health and safety issues, and it could be that they have overlooked something or are simply not doing their job properly. Unfortunately, this means that innocent people are left with injuries that will have a strong impact on their life.
Why should I claim?
If you suffered an injury as a receptionist then you may find that you need to take a lot of time off work, and this could mean that you do not always receive full pay. Sick pay is not always paid in full – a great deal will depend upon the individual employer. However, when you do not get full pay, paying your bills is something that becomes very difficult indeed. In addition, why should you struggle financially when the original accident was not your fault? Financial compensation through a personal injury claim could go a long way in helping to ease any problems you are having in this area.
Accident Advice Helpline will take all the details of your injury and help you to work out if you want to make a claim. If you do decide to go ahead, your claim will be in the hands of one of our personal injury solicitors who will deal with your case on a no win, no fee basis. You will not have to deal with the third party at all during the process, and we will keep you informed of what is happening at every stage of the claim. You have nothing to lose by picking up the phone and calling our free, 24-hour helpline, 0800 689 0500 – this could be the call that gets your life back on track.
