You need to be very skilled if you want to become an IT technician. You will usually work for a particular company or be self-employed depending on your preferences. You will probably have an office from which you work, but you will usually be called upon to service and maintain various computers and similar equipment for the company you work for. This means visiting various offices and you might even have to go off-site.
Being injured in this role is a rarity, but there are situations that might crop up in which injuries could occur. For example you may visit an office that is so untidy it is potentially dangerous in terms of the hazards it presents to anyone who goes there. Tripping hazards such as computer cables and even a poorly-maintained carpet could present you with a problem.
How might IT technician injury compensation be paid?
In order to have a chance at claiming IT technician injury compensation for an accident you have experienced while at work, you should make sure you have the chance to speak with a professional lawyer. They will have experience in handling all kinds of compensation claims of this nature. Speaking to someone specialised in this area therefore makes a lot of sense.
You should be able to confirm your injuries occurred within the last three years. You also need evidence that proves someone else was the cause of your injury. This could be through their actions or even through inaction, if there is something they did not do that should have been done.
Is this type of work safe?
Yes it is – the vast majority of IT technicians work throughout each day without being injured at all. However, electric shocks, trips, falls and slips and other accidents may have the potential to happen depending on the individual circumstances.
This is why it makes sense to call the people working at Accident Advice Helpline. The number you can call free of charge is 0800 689 0500.
