Mechanic injury advice

If a mechanic suffers from an injury while at work, they may be entitled to receive accident compensation. Accident Advice Helpline will be more than happy to offer mechanic injury advice to anyone who feels they might have a claim for compensation. Making a compensation claim can appear daunting so having the best available professional advice can be a source of considerable reassurance.

An important piece of advice for a mechanic, or any other worker, seeking accident compensation is that they should retain as much documentation as they can in respect of the accident. In terms of medical treatment compensation, if applicable, it could include prescriptions for any medications taken, medical appointment or doctors letters. Retaining proper paperwork means that an accident compensation claim can be dealt with more effectively and efficiently.

The solicitors employed by Accident Advice Helpline use a ‘no-win, no-fee*’ system, so clients in a difficult financial position following their accident have the security of knowing that an unsuccessful claim will not result in them having to pay out solicitors’ fees or paying any upfront costs either.

If a mechanic suffers injuries in the workplace, they need to remember that their employer has a legal obligation in terms of health and safety regulations and will typically cooperate with any investigation undertaken that may lead to compensation being rewarded. It is in an employer’s interest to have a safe workplace and employers do tend to appreciate this. Even if the injury suffered by a mechanic in the workplace is not deemed to be serious, they may still be entitled to seek compensation. For instance, a broken finger might, in relative terms, not be that serious but it may result in time off work, thus incurring a financial cost, as well as considerable pain for the employee in question. As the law implies, if someone has been hurt and it is the fault of another person, then the injured party is entitled to seek compensation.

If a mechanic suffers an injury away from their actual place of work but while still working – if they are using a recovery vehicle, for instance, or working on a vehicle on the side of a road on behalf of their employer – they would still be entitled to seek compensation. The solicitors employed by Accident Advice Helpline will be delighted to advise anyone who has suffered an accident about any concerns they may have regarding the compensation process.

The types of injuries a mechanic might suffer that they may be entitled to compensation for would include repetitive strain injuries, industrial deafness injuries and vibration white finger injuries from using vibrating hand-held machinery.
