    How to claim housekeeper injury compensation

    Working as a housekeeper in a hotel or domestic home can be a tough job – there are so many things that need to be done and you’re often working to tight deadlines. Many housekeepers are incredibly efficient at managing their time and ensuring that everything is completed before the end of their shift, but unfortunately accidents can and do happen that could affect productivity. Injured housekeepers may be unable to return to work, which could mean financial problems for them and their families.

    The good news is that if you’ve suffered a workplace injury and somebody else is to blame, you could claim housekeeper injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline. Since 2000 we have helped hundreds of people claim the compensation they deserve for an accident whilst working as a housekeeper.

    How have you been injured?

    Housekeeping accidents could lead to a range of different injuries, from minor to life-changing, but here are just a few of the different injuries we have handled housekeeper injury compensation for over the years:

    • Slip, trip or fall injuries – for example slipping on a wet floor your colleague is cleaning or falling down a flight of stairs after the banister breaks
    • Electric shock from faulty appliances and sockets
    • Needle stick injuries from dirty needles
    • Lacerations from sharp objects such as broken glass in the bin (when emptying it) or left lying around
    • Bitten by a domestic pet such as a dog
    • Manual handling injuries from moving heavy furniture and lifting heavy items
    • Skin conditions, allergic reactions, chemical burns or respiratory problems from chemical cleaning products such as bleach

    Working as a housekeeper may not seem like the most dangerous job, but there are a number of different things that could go wrong, particularly if your employer does not take your personal safety into account.

    Who is at fault?

    It’s up to your employer to keep you safe whilst you’re at work – if you’re employed directly by a hotel (or in a domestic household) then they could be held liable if you suffer injuries at work. If you’re an agency worker (and they supply you with cleaning equipment etc.) then it could be that they are responsible should you be injured whilst carrying out your job. At any rate, you could find you’re eligible to make a personal injury claim if you have been injured at work, so give Accident Advice Helpline a call on 0800 689 0500 to get confidential, no-obligation advice from our expert team.
