Are you making a no win no fee* Glasgow City compensation claim because you have been injured by delivery workers?
As many companies deliver goods to customers, they often rely on the services of delivery companies or couriers. Individual customers, for example, may order shopping online and expect it delivered to their home. Similarly, business customers may order office materials or goods and need them to be delivered to their workplace. Often, these parcels are relatively small and can be delivered by one or two individuals.

Although this isn’t a particularly dangerous type of job role, often delivery workers can try to rush to get from one delivery to another. As many employers are paid according to the number of deliveries they make in a day, this can lead to them trying to rush. In their haste, there is a chance that they could cause someone to suffer an injury. If, for example, they are running from their delivery van into a commercial building to make a drop-off, they could collide with pedestrians or other workers. If so, they could be held responsible for any injuries they’ve caused and they could face a no win no fee* Glasgow City compensation claim.
Similarly, if they are rushing whilst on the road, they could potentially cause a road traffic accident to occur. In such instances, those harmed in the accident could go on to make a no win no fee* Glasgow City compensation claim against them and, if they are successful, they could be awarded a significant amount of compensation.
Have you been injured?
Another type of company which often rely on delivery firms are building and construction companies. In most cases, they can require materials to be delivered to their sites. However, these types of deliveries are often carried out by specialist companies. Due to the size and weight of building materials, special vehicles are often required to deliver them safely. Of course, this must be done by qualified and experienced technicians. If, for example, pallets of bricks are to be delivered, an adapted vehicle with mechanical equipment may need to be used. If a mistake was made during their delivery or if the materials were to fall or land on someone, they could cause extremely serious injuries to occur.
