Can I make a claim?
At Accident Advice Helpline, we can assist you in finding out whether or not you have a legitimate claim for compensation. Our advisors will listen to your account and will be able to tell you whether or not you have a claim worth pursuing after asking a few simple questions. It is still entirely up to you if you want to go ahead with this claim – and if you decide to go ahead, our expert lawyers will do their very best to get you the full compensation to which you are entitled. Remember – there is no initial charge and our team works on a no win, no fee basis.
What you need to do
It is important to prove that not only was your mail depot injury not your fault, but that it was also caused by the negligence of a third party – such as your supervisor or the management. For instance, if you were injured due to being supplied with faulty equipment, it would be necessary to show that the mail depot management was aware of the fault but had neglected to replace or repair the equipment. If you suffered a back injury while lifting a heavy package, it would be necessary to establish that you had not been given proper training or equipment, or that your line manager had knowingly put you at risk by insisting that you lift above the legally maximum safe weight.
One of the most helpful things that you can do is to obtain the names and contact details of witnesses to the mail depot injury. They will be able to confirm that you were injured in the course of doing your job, and that a third party was at fault. Details of any medical treatment you received as a result of the injury are also useful. Keep a note too of any time off work or loss of earnings incurred as a result of your mail depot injury, as this will be factored into your claim. The more evidence we have, the better Accident Advice Helpline can build a strong case in order to secure the compensation to which you are entitled.
