    Postman counselling

    Postman counselling is an important service for any postal worker injured on the job. Accident Advice Helpline exists to help people just like you to make claims following an injury at work. We have the best team of solicitors who will help you with your claim.

    You may have wondered when the time is right to contact someone after you’ve been injured whilst completing your mail deliveries. It’s always better to contact us straight away when something happens. You can enjoy even better results by giving our team enough time to prepare everything.

    What are some common postman injuries?

    Strains from lifting bulky packages over a period of time are possible. Compensation might be sought if strains prevent you from working for any length of time. Such an injury could become severe enough to require a career change.

    An unsafe work environment at a post office could lead to a slip and fall, or possibly other injuries. All workers must remember that their employers have a legal obligation to provide safe working spaces. Failure to do so is a good reason to seek legal remedy, as it also impacts other workers.

    Traffic accidents, especially in poor weather conditions, may result in serious injury. Some postmen have also been hit by careless drivers whilst on foot. These sorts of accidents often cause very expensive injuries.

    Homes with icy pavements are responsible for many slip and fall injuries. Compensation is often sought on the grounds that the home-owners had an obligation to get rid of the ice. No postal worker should have to fear performing their job.

    Dog bites are a common threat for many postmen. Negligent owners who fail to keep their dogs confined often have legal action taken because of the medical expenses caused by dog bites. Legal action is often what it takes to make some dog owners be more cautious.

    What you should do

    Accident Advice Helpline encourages anyone facing a workplace injury claim to learn as much as possible about the process. Be prepared to give our staff as many details about your accident as you can remember or document. Witnesses to the event are very important, especially when it comes to proving that the other party was at fault.

    Immediate medical attention will help rule out serious injury, as well as give you further evidence that compensation of some sort is needed. Even the best personal injury lawyers may not be able to help with a claim when you never saw a doctor. You should keep copies of all of your bills that document medical expenses, as well as prescription medications, as these can be included in your claim.

    We’re ready to help

    You can contact our 24-hour helpline with any questions you have, or contact us through our website. No matter what sort of accident you’ve had, you can rest assured that we know just how to handle things, from slip and fall accidents to dog bites. Our solicitors work exclusively on a no win no fee basis, which benefits our clients more in the long run.
