    Postman Accident Advice

    If you are a postman and you have recently been involved in an accident through a third party’s actions, you may be in a position to make a compensation claim. In order to maximise your claim’s success, you should seek postman accident advice from a law firm specialising in personal injury cases.

    Postmen and postal workers are regularly injured as they carry out their duties. The accidents might happen in the depot, offices or out on the streets as they go on their rounds. Injuries can be sustained when lifting parcels and packages or while in transit (driving, cycling or walking). There are also numerous reports of postmen being attacked by aggressive pets, especially dogs.

    As a postman who has suffered injuries thanks to one or more of these accidents, you can make a claim for compensation from the guilty party. Depending on the unique circumstances surrounding your claim, the responsible person could be your employer, a pet owner or a member of the public.

    Proving liability in such a case might be a difficult and lengthy affair. That is why you need to engage the services of personal injury specialists. Accident Advice Helpline has some of the most experienced and skilled personal injury solicitors in the UK.  We know what it takes to make a successful claim and we would be glad to help you with your postman accident claim.

    When to claim

    There are strict deadlines for bringing compensation claims. In the UK, you have to make a claim within three years after the accident occurred. We therefore, advise all our clients to start the claim process as soon as possible after the accident. We understand that making claims and talking to solicitors might be the last thing on your mind after a traumatic injury.

    You should remember that you need to start building your case early enough. Making a compensation claim soon after an accident gives your solicitor time to collect evidence while it is still fresh. They will also have enough time to build up a strong case where you will stand a better chance of winning.
