Parking attendants, also known as traffic wardens, are not exactly popular with members of the public – in fact, that’s an understatement. Enforcing parking regulations and issuing fines for parking violations isn’t going to win you any friends, but it’s an important job that helps to keep our streets safe for drivers and pedestrians alike. It might be that you’ve been injured whilst working as a parking attendant, either for the local council or a traffic control agency, and if this is the case and somebody else is to blame for your accident, there’s a good chance you could claim parking attendant injury compensation.
What if my injuries are minor?
A slip, trip or fall at work could cause either minor injuries, such as a sprained ankle or serious injuries such as a head injury or facial injuries. Even if you’ve suffered minor injuries at work, if somebody else (usually your employer) is to blame, you could claim parking attendant injury compensation.
If you work as a parking attendant in a car park, you could be hit by a vehicle reversing without checking their mirrors, or even an angry driver pulling away suddenly. Or you could be injured when a driver exits through the barrier at speed without paying for their parking. Whatever has happened, Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim the compensation you deserve not only for your pain and suffering but also for any loss of earnings that have affected you after taking time off work.
Unable to return to work?
If you’ve been hit by a car and suffered serious crush injuries or the loss of a limb, you might be unable to return to work in a physical role, such as working as a parking attendant. Or perhaps you have sustained a serious fracture after a slip or fall at work and will be unable to work the same shifts you used to? This could affect you and your family financially, making it a challenge to cover household bills and medical expenses.
