    How to claim negligent staff compensation


    Whether you are the colleague of a negligent member of staff or have been a customer in a shop who was served by a negligent staff member, it’s easy to laugh off staff negligence as simple carelessness – but it could lead to accidents which could leave members of the public and other members of staff seriously injured.

    If you’ve been injured by a staff member in a store, you could claim negligent staff compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings. Trust Accident Advice Helpline to help you – we have been helping people claim compensation since 2000 and our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, making our services affordable to everyone.

    How did your accident happen?

    Here are a few examples of situations where you could claim negligent staff compensation, either as a colleague of the staff member concerned or as a member of the public:

    • Scalded in a café or restaurant when a waitress spills a hot drink on you
    • Tripping over boxes left lying around by another staff member in an office or retail environment
    • Run over by a forklift truck driven by an inexperienced colleague
    • Food poisoning from food prepared by kitchen staff who have failed to pay attention to food hygiene
    • Slipping on a wet floor that has recently been cleaned (with no warning signs)

    These are just a few examples relating to claims we have handled in the past concerning negligent members of staff. If you’ve been injured and believe a colleague at your workplace is to blame, you could claim personal injury compensation – likewise if you have suffered injuries after eating in a restaurant or visiting a shop or other public place, the owner of the establishment could be held liable for your injuries.

    Better move fast

    There’s a three-year time limit in place to make a claim for personal injury compensation, whether you have suffered broken bones after a slip or trip or been struck down by food poisoning. So it’s a good idea to get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible after your accident, to find out if you could make a claim. Our expert personal injury advisors will listen to you and offer confidential, no-obligation advice, and because we have years of industry experience specialising in personal injury law, you know you can trust us.
