Responsibilities of your employers

Your employers are responsible for ensuring that your work environment is safe and free from any hazards, as well as ensuring you have undergone any necessary health and safety training required for your position. If they have neglected in their duty of care and you are injured at work as a result, you are able to claim compensation.

Possible causes of injury

Because delivery workers work in a range of different environments, they can be involved in many different types of accidents. Just a few examples are listed below:

These situations can lead to a wide range of injuries, any of which can restrict your ability to work in the short term, possibly longer. This in turn, can lead to potential loss of income and financial strain. Making a personal injury claim can help you to ease this burden by addressing the financial losses an injury can cause.  

FAQs

How much could I claim?

There is a number of different factors that could affect the amount of compensation you are likely to receive, including:

  • What type of injury you have sustained and how serious it is
  • How you’ve recovered from it over the time period since it occurred
  • The effects the injury has had on your life, particularly your ability to work
  • Whether or not the injury has caused you any financial problems

Although each individual case is different, to get an idea of how much you might be entitled to claim for your injury you can check our Compensation Calculator. It’s important to note that these estimated compensation amounts are based on the average guidelines, and do not take into account any financial losses you may have experienced as a result of your injury. To get a more accurate idea of exactly how much you could claim, get in contact with us to discuss your case with one of our expert solicitors.

Are there any time limits on making a claim?

Under English and Welsh law, a person can make an injury claim within 3 years of the incident occurring. There are very select circumstances under which you may be able to claim after this period, such as if you were injured in an industrial accident. If you think you may fall into this bracket, get in touch with us for some clear advice on whether or not you are able to make a claim.

Why do I need a solicitor?

Personal injury law can be extremely complex, and every individual case is unique. If you choose to make a claim without the services of a solicitor, you will most likely be making a claim against an insurance company who not only has experience in defending themselves against this type of claim, but also has the resources necessary to build a strong legal defence. You will also need to cover all the costs involved in the claim, such as police reports, medical examinations and possibly hiring a barrister.

To ensure you get the best possible representation, we will appoint a solicitor who specialises in the particular area of law that is most relevant to your case. We guarantee to do our utmost to get you the compensation you deserve.
