Council worker accident advice

It is not inconceivable that you may one day need council worker accident advice. When you work for the council there are any number of jobs that could result in an injury, but the responsibility for health and safety rests with your employers.

Council workers need to be given the correct personal protective equipment in order to make sure that they are able to do their jobs safely. If this is not provided then it could leave a worker vulnerable to injury.

There are also plenty of policies and procedures that should be adhered to in order to ensure that safety in the workplace is paramount. Road sweepers are at risk from the traffic, so measures should be taken to protect them from it. Those who work in parks will be using equipment such as mowers and strimmers, and could be injured as a result.

Even office workers are not immune to accidents. Councils generally have an entire department that is devoted to health and safety, but unfortunately mistakes do happen and things are overlooked. This means that people could become hurt through no fault of their own.

What should I do if I am hurt at work?

If you need to get council worker accident advice you should contact Accident Advice Helpline, providing you have received medical treatment first. We have a 24-hour free helpline available to you so that you can contact us at the most convenient time for you.

In order to determine if you have valid grounds to make a claim, one of our experienced advisors will take the necessary details from you. This is a good opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have about the claims process.

Do I really need compensation?

The simple answer is yes, you do need compensation. When you have been injured, you may have to take a considerable amount of time off work. A serious injury can take a long time to recover from and, during that time, you will still find that the bills come through the door. How will you manage?

If the accident that caused your injury could have been prevented, it is very important that you pursue financial compensation as this could make life much easier for you and your family. Do not forget that your injury has an impact on every other person in your house, as well as your friends.

Accident Advice Helpline ensures that you will not have to pay out any more than you have to by offering a no win, no fee* system that can ease the pressure even further. You will not have to pay anything upfront to begin your claim – making justice within reach for everyone, no matter what the state of his or her bank balance.
