Working for other people as a house cleaner, you are likely to have a number of different properties to work at while you earn your living. This can mean you are regularly exposed to different working environments, over which you have no control yourself. If you had an accident whilst working, your doctor may have recommended psychological counselling as part of your long-term mental healing process. Although counselling is available through the NHS, you may find the waiting list daunting; private counselling is usually available much more quickly. Accident Advice Helpline could help you raise a financial claim for compensation for your accident as a house cleaner. Your claim could then help you recover the cost of your house cleaner accident counselling.
When you work for other people, you have a legal right to expect a safe working environment. There are numerous health and safety regulations in Britain, which are designed to minimise the dangers that could crop up at any time.
When you work in someone else’s house, you may not realise the risks you run. The property owner or tenants may not be maintaining the property. For example, there could be exposed electrical wiring, faulty floorboards, loose roof tiling or dangerous stairs. You have a right to refuse to work at such a property, but you may simply not have been told about the dangers.
If you suffered a house cleaner accident because of another person’s negligence, or other kind of culpability, you could be able to claim financial compensation for your injury. This is where Accident Advice Helpline could be of assistance.
How can Accident Advice Helpline help me?
Accident Advice Helpline specialises in representing people who suffered an accident they did not cause themselves. Our experienced solicitors work on a no-win, no-fee basis and have years of experience. We were established in 2000 and have helped thousands of people every year gain the accident compensation that is rightfully theirs.
An accident claim can be substantial. We always aim to ensure you receive the highest possible compensation as possible. Even though Accident Advice Helpline does not pay for your private counselling costs directly, nor provide you with the counselling itself, you can use a successful claim to pay towards it.
The benefit of private counselling is that you can often receive it much faster than on the NHS where restricted health budgets and high demand often lead to significant waiting lists. If your house cleaner accident left you with significant mental trauma, you may need to seek help sooner rather than later. Private counselling can be costly, but if you raise a successful claim for compensation, you may find your costs will be recovered.
