Have you been injured moving furniture? Need accident at work compensation in Poole?
If your job is to help people move from home to home or office to office, or simply from one location to another, then you may well be entitled to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Poole if you sustain injuries during the execution of that job especially if the accident was something that was (a) out of your control and (b) could have been avoided. There are hundred of thousands of people in the United Kingdom today who make a living from helping homeowners and business owners move their furniture, office equipment and such like to new addresses and in doing so expose themselves to physical wear and tear daily. This can be exacerbated however if an accident occurs during the course of carrying out these duties which could have been avoided by taking a little more care of ensuring flooring surfaces were flat, spill free and obstacle free.
Injured whilst moving equipment for others?
