    Employers to blame for accidents

    No matter where you work, or the industry in which you work, your employer has a legal responsibility to try to ensure your safety at every available opportunity. If they fail in this duty and you are injured as a result of an accident that is not your fault then an Accident Advice Helpline expert solicitor in Helmdon may be able to help you win compensation for your injuries.

    Bike Couriers use an expert solicitor in Helmdon to make claim against employers

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline we have a long history of helping employees make claims against their employers after they have been injured in accidents which were not their fault.

    Our expert solicitor in Helmdon has helped countless bike couriers for example make claims after they have been involved in various accidents and incidents.

    While a large number of couriers are injured as a result of accidents on the road (often caused by the negligence of other road users or problems with dangerous road surfaces), more still are injured as a result of failings from their employers. Such incidents can include:

    • Faulty equipment
    • Lack of training
    • Lack of safety equipment

    A solicitor in Helmdon could help you make a claim if you have been injured in an accident as a result of faulty equipment. If it is your employer’s responsibility to provide the equipment you are using to perform your duties and tasks associated with your job, then it is their responsibility to ensure that it is properly maintained and essentially fit for purpose.

    If they provide you with equipment, for example a bicycle or motorcycle, that is faulty in some way and you are injured as a result, then your solicitor in Helmdon will be able to argue that it is the fault of the employer and not yourself. As such they will then be held as being liable for the accident and you will be able to make a claim against them for compensation.

    You could also make a claim if you do not feel you have been given the necessary training to perform your job safely. In the case of bike couriers this usually relates to handling training for the manual lifting of parcels and packages. Some packages can be quite large and it is important that your employers makes you aware of not only what is a safe weight for you to manage, but the most appropriate way for you to manage it. This will also ensure that you know how to load your bike properly to ensure equal weight distribution.

    It might also be the responsibility of your employer to ensure you have the right personal protection equipment (knee pads, helmet, hi-vis wear) to ensure your safety. This should be regularly checked and monitored to ensure it is fit for purpose.
