You’d be forgiven for thinking that working as a recruitment consultant is hardly likely to be the most dangerous job there is. But when you stop to think about it, accidents have the potential to happen in any workplace at any time. If you have been injured whilst working as a recruitment consultant, there’s a tendency to take the blame for your accident yourself – but what if your employer or a colleague is actually at fault? If that’s the case, you might want to think about putting in a claim for recruitment consultant injury compensation; you’d be surprised how easy it is to make a claim with Accident Advice Helpline. It won’t cost the earth either as our professional personal injury lawyers provide a 100% no win, no fee* service.
Common recruitment consultant injuries
Working as a recruitment consultant usually means working in an office, although you may be expected to visit clients at their place of work. Here are a few examples of the types of accidents which could lead to a claim for recruitment consultant injury compensation:
- Car accident – for example being hit by another car whilst driving to visit a client
- Injured at a client’s place of work
- Slip, trip or fall at the office, such as tripping over trailing cables or slipping on a wet floor
- Scalded by hot liquid such as tea or coffee
- Electric shock from a faulty computer or printer
- Lacerations from damaged equipment/furniture in the office
- Repetitive strain injury from carrying out repetitive tasks such as typing
- Back or neck strain from a poorly set up workstation
If you’ve been injured whilst working as a recruitment consultant, what should you do? Well, seeking medical attention, if you need it, should be your priority.
