    How to claim valet injury compensation


    Ever eaten at a fine-dining restaurant or stayed at a five-star hotel? Then chances are you’ll have come across a valet – you know, the person who parks your car for you and then brings it back round for you when it’s time to head out? If you work as a valet, you’ll know that it can sometimes be a dangerous job. You might not think it, but there are all kinds of hazards lurking that could leave you injured at work, and if you’ve been involved in an accident that was somebody else’s fault, you could find yourself eligible to claim valet injury compensation.

    How could valets be injured?

    It sounds like a pretty straightforward job, but there are actually a number of causes for valet accidents, such as:

    • Driving a faulty car – for example if the brakes fail or the windscreen mists up, impairing visibility
    • Assaulted by an angry customer after you have damaged their vehicle
    • Struck by a reversing or speeding car either in the parking lot or in front of the hotel or restaurant
    • Injured by sharp or broken objects in the vehicle you are parking
    • Slip, trip or fall as you are entering/exiting the vehicle or the hotel/restaurant

    If you’re injured at work, what if you’re unable to return to your job until your injuries have healed? You may have broken your ankle or wrist or suffered back injuries that have left you unable to drive – how will you provide for your family? Claiming valet injury compensation could ensure you have the money you need to cover any household bills and medical expenses until you are able to return to work.
