Being employed as a travel agent is hardly the most dangerous job around, but it may be that you’re unlucky enough to have been injured in an accident at work. From slips, trips and falls to scalds from hot cups of coffee, any injury has the potential to be serious enough that you may need to take time off to recover – and that means your finances could be affected. If you’re struggling to cover your household bills or simply feel that the person responsible for your accident should be held liable, get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to see if you could claim travel agent injury compensation.
Oops – I’ve spilt my drink
There are several different types of accidents which are common amongst travel agents – perhaps unsurprisingly, one of the most common types of accidents is a scald, from hot drinks such as tea and coffee being spilt. Here are just a few other examples of accidents which could lead to a claim for travel agent injury compensation:
- Car accident – for example whilst travelling to visit a new hotel or resort for work purposes
- Slip, trip or fall in the work car park, tripping over cables in the office or slipping on a wet floor
- Electric shock from sockets or faulty equipment such as a PC
- Cuts and lacerations from damaged furniture or equipment
Maybe you’ve tripped on a loose floor tile when arriving at work? Or perhaps you’ve suffered scalds to your arms and hands after a colleague has spilt tea or coffee on you? Whatever has happened, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline.
