If you are a delivery driver and have been injured while working, it is in your best interest to seek delivery driver injury advice. By contacting Accident Advice Helpline you will be taking the first steps in determining if you have a viable case for making a personal injury claim.
There are many types of injury you can suffer while working as a delivery driver. If you are involved in a road traffic accident, for example, you may suffer injuries such as whiplash. Your job is also likely to include lifting and carrying, which can result in back injuries. It is worth bearing in mind that your employer has a duty of care towards your health and safety and should provide you with the proper training and equipment.
Remember, thanks to Accident Advice Helpline’s no win, no fee* policy, one of our skilled advisers will be able to let you know if you have grounds for making a personal injury claim without you having to pay an upfront fee. In order to be able to make a claim, you should not have been responsible for the incident leading to your injuries and you should be able to identify the person or persons who were to blame.
Who should I contact Accident Advice Helpline for delivery driver injury advice?
Making a personal injury claim is an often complex legal process; you are therefore advised to contact a qualified solicitor. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have a team of legal experts with the experience to give you the best possible delivery driver injury advice. Contacting us could not be easier; all you have to do is pick up the phone and call our free 24-hour helpline.
What information will I need to provide?
In order for us to give you the best delivery driver injury advice you will be asked to provide as much information as possible about the accident. Not only will we need your own recollections, though they are very important, we will also need information from third parties. This will include the names and address of any witnesses, as well as the name and force number of the officer leading the investigation if the police were involved.
Perhaps most importantly of all you will need to ask your doctor to release their medical report detailing the extent of your injuries and the treatment you received. If you have not already had your injuries examined we will advise you to see your doctor as soon as possible.
If you have been forced to take time off work to recuperate you will have lost wages and there may also be the cost of prescription charges, travel to and from hospital appointments, and therapies to be considered. You should keep receipts for any expenses incurred, along with a note of wages lost, as all of these costs will be included in your compensation claim.
Will making a claim be costly?
Having ascertained that you do have grounds for making a compensation claim you can be reassured that we will represent you on a no win, no fee* basis. This means you will not be asked to pay an upfront fee.
When should I seek advice?
There are tight deadlines for making compensation claims, so you should seek delivery driver injury advice as soon after the accident as possible.
