    County Durham accident at work compensation

    Drive a vehicle that is not your own for a living? Then you might well be entitled to some form of 100% no win no fee* County Durham accident at work compensation if your employer did not make sure that whatever you were driving was roadworthy and you were injured as a consequence.

    If you do drive a vehicle that is not your own for a living, it will be important for you to realise that your employer will have a responsibility to make sure that it is safe to drive. If it fails in this duty and you are injured in an accident that was not your fault as a consequence, you might be able to take action.

    Road traffic accidents and County Durham accident at work compensation claims

    Perhaps you were working as a delivery driver when the brakes failed on your van, causing you to smash into the vehicle in front of you at speed at a junction. If it could be proved that this defect came about as a result of your employer failing to carry out regular maintenance checks on your vehicle, you could be in line for a County Durham accident at work compensation pay-out.

    Maybe you were driving a bus when you were injured by an angry passenger assaulting you. If the cross passenger in question was able to get at you as result of the protective screening around your cab not being up to scratch, you could have a case against your employer.

    Perchance you were earning a crust as a bicycle courier when you were asked to deliver a parcel that was far too large for you to carry. If you were to be injured in an accident that was not your fault as a consequence of this, there will be a possibility that a decent 100% no win no fee* County Durham accident at work compensation solicitor might be able to secure you the recompense you deserve.
