The window cleaner accident claim process may involve more than you realise. Many people take the fact that their job has risks associated with it for granted. However, if an accident happens that is no fault of your own, you might have a valid claim. Such workplace accidents are fairly common in risky professions, such as window cleaner jobs that involve working at great heights. A sad but true fact is that many employers cut corners when it comes to conforming to safety regulations. This is why, if you’ve had a workplace accident in the last 3 years, you need to contact the Accident Advice Helpline.
What are some examples of accidents common for window cleaners?
If you’re a window cleaner, you understand how vitally important a safe working environment is. Proper safety equipment must be provided to protect against falls and also against conditions that may occur because of high winds. Accidents can occur when safety harnesses and other equipment are worn or ill-fitting. Improperly used platforms can also pose a risk.
Window cleaners are susceptible to falls that result in serious injury, impact with the side of a building or a window, and injuries from broken or falling glass. Our 24-hour free hotline helps you every step of the way if you think you may be eligible to receive a claim.
You don’t want to delay if you’ve been injured and have missed or might miss work because of it. Very serious injuries may make it very difficult to ever go back to work again. You and your family want to make sure there is still money available for all your needs while you can’t work.
Why you need help throughout the claim process
Our expert lawyers know just how to help each injured worker who is looking for assistance. There is an eligibility test you can take online to start with. It only takes seconds, and you also have the option of speaking with an advisor on the phone. You are not obliged to start the claims process after talking with an advisor.
If you do decide to proceed with a claim, one of the solicitors we work with will help determine a settlement amount. Expect the amount that you are eligible for to be based upon the amounts given to similar claimants. You’ll be relieved to know that our lawyers don’t collect a fee unless a settlement is reached. When you’ve been injured at work, you don’t want to have to worry about big legal bills you can’t pay.
There are many other advantages that come with getting help through the Accident Advice Helpline. Our experts may be able to help you claim other expenses that came up because of your injury. For example, if you had to use a taxi or other form of transportation due to being unable to drive, this is an expense you might be compensated for.
You will also be relieved to know that a solicitor can attend court on your behalf. This will save you a lot of time and anxiety. Don’t hesitate to contact us today to learn how we can help.
