    How to claim bathroom fitter injury compensation

    Bathroom fitters transform bathrooms into havens of relaxation, fitting new bathroom furniture such as toilets, sinks, baths and showers. It’s a physical job, and one which usually involves working with a range of equipment and tools. A skilled bathroom fitter is responsible for ensuring the new bathroom looks its best, and may have to remove the old bathroom suite before fitting a new one. With any physical work, there is the risk of accidents occurring, but if you have been injured at work through no fault of your own (it may be that your employer is to blame), you might find yourself eligible to claim bathroom fitter injury compensation.

    Bathroom fitter injuries

    If you’re working as a bathroom fitter, you should have qualifications, experience and training to ensure that you know how to carry out your job safely. Unfortunately, some employers don’t provide bathroom fitters with the necessary training, which could lead to injuries at work. Here are just a few of the accidents which Accident Advice Helpline has handled claims for, since we were established in 2000:

    • Crush injuries or broken bones sustained after dropping a heavy sink, toilet or pipes onto your foot or hands
    • Cuts and lacerations from using hand tools
    • Injuries suffered after a slip on a wet floor or tripping over tools or equipment left lying around
    • Cuts and bruises from a slip or trip or other accident

    Employers should ensure that they provide bathroom fitters with the protective equipment necessary to carry out their job, such as steel toe-capped boots and gloves. If your employer doesn’t protect you at work and you’re injured, you could claim bathroom fitter injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline. Even if your injuries have left you unable to work, and you’re affected by lost wages, you can still afford to claim with us thanks to our 100% no win, no fee** service.

    Unable to work

    Serious crush injuries, broken bones or strains and sprains might leave you unable to return to work for some time – how are you going to pay those household bills or cover the cost of any medical treatment you might need? A personal injury settlement could really help you to move on with your life, so call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 and find out if you’re eligible to make a claim. Our expert personal injury advisors are on hand offering confidential, no-obligation advice and answering any questions you may have about the claims process.
