    Painting and decorating accident advice


    Painting and decorating accident advice

    If you were working as a painter and decorator and were injured in an accident, you may now be looking for a good place to find painting and decorating accident advice. Ever since we were established in 2000, Accident Advice Helpline has helped thousands of people make claims for accidents they did not cause themselves.

    When you contact us, one of our friendly advisers will go through the details of your painting and decorating injury with you to see if we can help you make an accident claim. If we think you have a valid case, one of our expert personal injury solicitors will be matched to your case.

    Painting and decorating: Risks in the workplace

    Work as a painter and decorator can be very fulfilling and stimulating. You may have trained as an apprentice and worked on many different projects during your career without any accidents occurring. Generally speaking, the profession is low-risk, although this is unlikely to be much comfort to you if you were recently involved in an accident.

    To make a claim through Accident Advice Helpline, your accident must have been caused by someone else. You may have been forced to work in an unsafe environment by an employer who knew the risks this posed to your well-being. You may have used equipment maintained by other people, which was faulty or unsafe to use.

    Even if your employer or your colleagues did not intend to cause you any personal harm, or if your painting and decorating accident was the result of their negligence, you may have a potentially strong claim for financial compensation.
