Being a flight attendant may draw envy from friends and family, but mishaps can happen and if you have been injured during your work, it is in your best interest to seek flight attendant injury advice. One reason why people seek advice following an accident is to learn the options available to them. Here at Accident Advice Helpline we have been offering legal advice to people who have suffered accidents at work and elsewhere since 2000. So give us a call on our free, 24-hour helpline.
Why seek legal advice?
Your injury could well have led to pain and suffering as well as financial loss. If you have had to take time off work to recover, you will have lost wages during this time. You may also have to pay prescription charges as well as expenses for travel to and from treatment. By seeking flight attendant injury advice, you will learn whether you can make a claim for compensation.
Our Accident Advice Helpline lawyers have the expertise to deal with such claims. They also work on a no win, no fee* basis and that means you will not have to pay anything upfront if you want them to pursue a claim on your behalf.
What kind of accidents can flight attendants suffer?
Flight attendants work in confined spaces and as the aeroplane can sometimes be buffeted in flight, this can lead to trips and falls resulting in cuts and bruising. Air turbulence can also lead to scalding and burns if the attendant is serving hot drinks and food. If as a flight attendant you come up against a drunk or obnoxious passenger, you may be unfortunate enough to suffer an assault, resulting in cuts, bruises or even serious injury.
If you were injured while working as a flight attendant, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible.
What advice can you give me?
You should contact Accident Advice Helpline as soon as practically possible because if we find you do have grounds for a claim, there are deadlines that need to be met. Normally, you have to file a claim within three years of an incident. You should know that if you were responsible for the incident that led to your injury, according to compensation regulations, you would not be able to make a claim.
In order for us to give you proper advice, we will need to know as much about the incident that led to you being injured as possible. This information will allow our legal team to decide if you do have grounds for a claim and whom it should be made against.
If a claim is to be made, a medical report will be necessary, as it will provide evidence of the extent of your injuries. Our advice is if you have not already done so, make an appointment to visit your doctor and have them examine your injuries and document them in your medical report.
Anyone who suffers an injury while performing his or her job duties deserves the best possible advice, which is why you should contact us for flight attendant injury advice.
