Have you suffered a Cefn-Mawr accident whilst delivering items?
If your job involves making collections or deliveries, you may be required to enter other people’s properties or to walk on their land. Most delivery drivers visit various premises so you could find yourself collecting from and delivering to commercial properties as well as residential properties.
Although the internet has been blamed for making some job roles redundant, the rise of online shopping has certainly created business for delivery companies and couriers. With more and more people purchasing items online, many courier firms and delivery companies are continuing to advertise for new recruits.
Whilst most people assume that working as a delivery driver is a relatively safe job, it can have its dangers. If for example, you spend a lot of time on the road, you could be at risk of being hurt in a road traffic Cefn-Mawr accident or a collision of some sort.
Accident Advice Helpline
If a road traffic accident occurs whilst you’re performing your job role, you may be able to make a claim for compensation, even though you were working at the time. If for example, another driver causes a Cefn-Mawr accident, you could make a claim against them for the injuries you experienced as a result. In addition to this, if the accident meant that you were unable to carry out your job role and that you lost money, you could claim this lost income back when you make a claim for compensation.
As well as being injured whilst on the road, you could suffer an accident whilst on someone else’s property. If, for example, people fail to maintain their homes or gardens, you could be likely to suffer a Cefn-Mawr accident whilst trying to deliver an item to them. Cracked paving stones or broken fencing could all result in a trip or fall which could leave you with serious injuries.
If you’ve been hurt or suffered a Cefn-Mawr accident whilst carrying out your job, it’s important to ascertain who was responsible. If your employer could be said to have contributed to the incident, you may be able to make a claim against them but if it was a third party that caused the accident, you may need to use a personal injury lawyer in order to obtain compensation from them.
