Working as a traffic warden can be relatively risky. You may find yourself in risky situations frequently, with other road users driving, cycling or running in such a way that others can be easily hurt. If you would like to check your ability to make an accident claim, you should contact Accident Advice Helpline for expert traffic warden injury advice. Give us a call on our free, 24-hour helpline to go through what happened to you and get an estimate of what your claim could be worth.
The risks of working as a traffic warden
The risks of working as a traffic warden can be frequent and serious. You could be at risk of sustaining serious physical or psychological injuries every time another road user acts without proper care, or because they suddenly lose control of their vehicle. Your traffic warden accident may have happened even when everything seemed to be fine, as a road user might have suddenly fainted or suffered a momentary lapse of attention. Even if there may have been other victims in your accident, you owe it to yourself to check your entitlement to financial compensation.
Why make an accident claim?
The main benefit of making a successful accident claim is financial. The financial recompense you receive after being injured can be of significant help to you. After all, you may have been badly injured, leaving you unable to work. Even if your private or public sector employer continues to pay you for a determinate time, you could still start to suffer from your loss of income. A successful claim is not simply a good way for your accident to be legally recognised by the party at fault – it can have a practical use in your life.
The other main benefit is that an accident claim can boost your mental well-being. Simply knowing that the party who caused your injury has formally admitted their culpability can provide you with a significant mental boost. If your injury left you with psychological side effects, a successful claim can be even more important to you.
