    Council worker accident claim


    It is not uncommon for us to deal with a council worker accident claim. If you think about it carefully, there are plenty of different situations that could lead to a council worker becoming injured.

    Do you work in council offices? Has somebody dealt with all the potential trip hazards? Is all the equipment in good working order? If you think something has gone awry, call Accident Advice Helpline.

    The same applies to other types of council jobs. You may find that you are in a position where you have to deal with members of the public. Not all of them are friendly, so what measures have been taken to make sure that you are not in danger of assault? Maybe you are one of the council’s manual workers.

    You might be using equipment that has not been maintained properly or that you have not been properly trained to use. You might have to work in a dangerous situation. If this is the case, then you should be aware that your employer has a duty of care towards you. The council’s health and safety department should have measures in place designed to protect workers.

    So why will I need to make a claim?

    Unfortunately, it is not always the case that the people that you work with take health and safety seriously. You may find that you have been injured as the result of somebody else’s oversight. If this is the case, you should take action – starting a claim could help prevent this from happening to one of your colleagues in the future.
