If you have been injured at work, one of the questions that you may be asking yourself is, ‘Can I claim as a telecommunications engineer?’ The answer to this question is ‘yes’. If the injury has occurred through no fault of your own, you may be in a position to claim.
Working as a telecommunications engineer can be dangerous as you may be working at the roadside, up a telegraph pole, or even in somebody’s home. It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the working environment is safe and that you have had the correct training, have been issued with the correct PPE and have all the help that you need to do your job safely. Any lapses in this system could leave you vulnerable to accident and injury.
What should I do if I have been injured?
It is a good idea to speak to a specialist law firm if you have been injured while working as a telecommunications engineer. This is where Accident Advice Helpline comes in. We were established in the year 2000 to help those who would no longer get help to pursue a claim. The government decided to remove legal aid for personal injury claims during the late 1990s and this meant that a lot of people would not have the means to obtain legal help if they were injured. Our team of specialist personal injury solicitors and claims advisers are all experienced professionals who will guide you through the process of making a claim. Our 24-hour helpline on 0800 689 0500 is free to call, so take a few minutes to speak to one of our team and find out if you should pursue a claim for compensation for your injury.
Why is compensation important?
If you have suffered an injury as a telecommunications engineer then this could prevent you from working for a while as you recover. Not everybody has enough money in the bank to deal with the bills while this is happening and it will not always be the case that a person is paid while they are taking sick leave. For this reason it is important to make a claim for compensation as soon as you can after the accident. Financial compensation can help to bridge the gaps and cover the bills that will not stop coming through the door.
You will not need to pay us any monies upfront in order for us to deal with your claim. This is because we work on a no-win, no-fee basis. Your claim can begin immediately and this lack of a delay will only be to your benefit.
Talking to one of the team at Accident Advice Helpline will reassure you that you are in the hands of professionals, and we will do our best to put you at your ease.
If you have been injured and believe that the actions of another person were responsible for your injury, then you have nothing to lose by giving us a call on 0800 689 0500.
