Workplace claims in Rochdale


Do you need to make workplace claims in Rochdale for personal injury compensation? There are few people who haven’t heard the old adage “never work with children or animals”. However, there are just as many people who love animals to the extent that they turn their passion into their career.

They may work in veterinary surgeries, zoos, animal parks or pet stores, and all for the love of animals.

Animals are, as many people know, an unknown quantity and although many are highly trained or supposedly gentle by their nature, it is not uncommon for an animal to turn on a trainer or care giver. In many cases, the person injured could seek workplace claims in Rochdale with our ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline.

Once Bitten

Compensation which can be claimed through ‘no win, no fee*’ practitioners exists as part of health and safety regulations. Whenever you go to work, these regulations ensure that your employee takes all reasonable steps to ensure you are safe as you do so. If you worked as a crossing warden, it would be up to your employer to ensure you had high-visibility clothing and a stop sign and so when you work with animals, it is the responsibility of your employer to ensure you are safe as you do so.

As has already been stated, animals are an unknown quantity and for the most part as you work with animals, you have taken something of a risk in knowing this.

However, your employer has equal responsibility to ensure that he ensures you have sufficient equipment to ensure your safety as you perform your duties. For example, if your job involved you entering the habitat of a wild animal, your employer should provide protective clothing, adequate training and supervision as you do so.

You are entitled to seek compensation for workplace claims if it can be shown that your employer failed to take steps to ensure your safety. They should, as part of their duties, be providing you with the equipment, safe circumstances and training you need to perform your duties safely and should they fail then a claim can be sought.

Seeking compensation for workplace claims in Rochdale

A 30 second test could quickly establish the circumstances and the validity of your claim and thereafter Accident Advice Helpline can pursue a claim on your behalf.

In some situations, compensation may not be appropriate. For example, if you were scratched by an animal whilst performing an examination as a vet then it might be considered that this was a necessary risk to do your job which nobody could have prevented. However, if you were mauled by an animal because your employer failed to protect you adequately in the course of your duties, then you have a right to claim compensation which our ‘no win, no fee*’ practitioners can claim on your behalf.
