Have you been injured visiting a patient? Claim accident at work compensation in Pontrhydyfen
If you are a doctor, district nurse, community nurse or medical practitioner then you will have to spend a lot of your time travelling to and from your patient’s properties and visiting them in unfamiliar surroundings. If you have sustained injuries as a result of an accident that has occurred in these unfamiliar surroundings then you may be eligible to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Pontrhydyfen. Especially if the accident was one that could have been avoided.
Every year many thousands of health practitioners are injured in the workplace or whilst visiting other people’s home because of hazards that were unknown to them such as spillages, obstacles left in corridors and pathways or uneven flooring or walking surfaces where slips, trips and falls occurred. It is with this in mind that Accident Advice Helpline are on hand to help if you have sustained such injuries in the workplace or client’s property through no fault of your own. We can offer friendly advice and support and also determine if you are entitled to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Pontrhydyfen.
Visiting unfamiliar locations as part of your work
As a medical or health practitioner it will be part of your job to visit unfamiliar locations probably on a daily basis but that is not to say that accidents should be happening here, there and everywhere. Generally, most people will take into consideration the arrival of a stranger and make sure that anything that could cause a problem has been cleared up. But for those who might not do so and risk leaving you injured they also have to risk being liable for accident at work compensation in Pontrhydyfen. If you are a patient that is unable to do a great deal for yourself then obviously it is expected that someone acts on your behalf and makes sure that all obstacles are cleared before the arrival of any health practitioners.
