For most of us what constitutes the work place in reasonably straight forward, for example it is the office, the shop or the factory that we go to carry out our job. For others however the definition of the work place is far less clear cut and this can lead to disputes as to what does or does not constitute an accident in the work place.
The following are examples of the difficulties we sometimes encounter
Example 1 – A delivery driver.
A delivery driver visits a home address in order to drop off goods but whilst there he trips and falls on a damaged step when entering the house and suffers serious injuries. Who is to blame? Is this an accident in the workplace as his employer told him to go there or is it the homeowners fault for not alerting the driver to the damage and/or fixing it in the first place?
Example 2 – A postman.
What would happen if when delivering mail a postman gets bitten by a dog whilst putting the items through the letterbox, is this an accident at work or is it the homeowners responsibility?
As the above two examples illustrate just exactly what is and what is not an accident at work isn’t always as straight forward as you might imagine and this is precisely why you need to ensure that you have the right solicitor acting for you. Unsurprisingly insurance companies do not like paying out compensation if they believe they can transfer the blame onto someone else and so what may seem like a straight forward case can rapidly became complex and drawn out unless your solicitor can identify the issues and the guilty party from the outset.
From 1st April 2013 when you contact us you will not be asked to pay any money whatsoever up front, and even if your claim is unsuccessful through no fault of your own you will never be asked to pay anything to anyone.
