Working in a tattoo studio is a cool job, right? You’ll get to meet some really interesting people from all walks of life and if you’re employed as a tattoo artist, you’ll be paid to create amazing body art that helps people to feel unique and beautiful in their own skin – sounds pretty amazing to us. Of course, it might just be that you’re hired as a receptionist, in which case that’s probably pretty cool too.
Whatever your role in the studio, there might come the day when you’re involved in an accident at work. We hope not, but these things can and do happen. Injured tattoo studio staff have contacted Accident Advice Helpline in the past to make a claim for personal injury compensation, and we pride ourselves on our excellent customer service and 15 years’ industry experience.
Can you carry on working?
For many tattoo artists, their hands are their life – literally. A hand, wrist, arm or even a shoulder injury could mean they’re unable to continue working either temporarily or permanently. Injured tattoo studio staff who find themselves unable to return to work could be entitled to claim compensation for their loss of earnings, which could make life easier financially for you both now and in the future.
Imagine you have broken your wrist after a fall on a wet floor – the cleaner didn’t put the warning sign up – and now you’ve learned it’s a complex fracture that could take months to heal, and it may affect your work. Or maybe you’ve tripped on damaged flooring at the studio and broken your arm or fingers. It could be months before you’re back in the studio doing your best work – how will you pay your mortgage in the meantime?
Making your life easier
We know that the aftermath of an accident can be a difficult time physically, emotionally and financially. When you claim personal injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline, we’ll consider how your injuries affect your ability to work.
So if you’re unlikely to get back behind the tattoo gun any time soon, you could be looking at a substantial personal injury settlement if your claim is successful. If somebody else is to blame for your accident at work, call us on 0800 689 0500 today and see how we can help you – it’s free to call and get confidential, no-obligation advice from our expert personal injury advisors.
