Do you work as a delivery driver?
The rise in online shopping has meant that more and more people now rely on postal deliveries to receive their goods. Due to this, more and more courier companies have been set up and the industry has created a significant number of jobs for people.
With people having everything from furniture, clothes and food to household goods delivered on a regular basis, you may find that you’re continually busy if you work as a delivery driver. Whilst some couriers do work on motorbikes or mopeds, most delivery drivers use a car or van to ensure that they are able to move all the parcels that need delivering.
Due to the amount of time that drivers spend on the road, they may be at an increased risk of being involved in a road traffic accident but this isn’t the only way that delivery personnel can be hurt whilst they are carrying out their duties.
As the nature of the job means that drivers are delivering to people, they often need to obtain a signature so that they can verify that the goods have been received. In most cases, this will involve walking on someone’s property to get to their front door or entering their work premises.
Whilst most people keep their driveways and gardens in good order, not everyone does. If there are loose paving stones or debris in the driveway, you may find that you trip or fall as a result. If you are hurt whilst on someone else’s land or property, there may be action that you can take to obtain compensation for the harm that you suffered.
