Compensation for an injury as a delivery driver

With the parcel trade playing an important role right around the UK, there are thousands of delivery drivers working around the country each day. Although in general delivery drivers will mainly be responsible for delivering post, letters and various other generally non-dangerous items, there will from time to time be large packages which require delivery and if these aren't dealt with appropriately then injuries could be sustained.

If you have been injured as a delivery driver through no fault of your own, either through an accident on the road or perhaps through poor training at your job, you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. 

What are my rights as a delivery driver?

As a delivery driver you have the same rights as anyone else who performs this type of job and that means that you are entitled to receive the right training and skills that you need to adequately perform your task. Any delivery driver needs adequate training on how to safely deliver parcels, this includes being taught how to lift and carry heavy parcels, and where to use equipment to help with this task if it is required. 

What are some examples of situations where a claim could be made?

If you are a delivery driver then you could claim in any situation where you feel you have been the victim of negligence. Some examples of where you might claim in this situation include:

  • Claims for accidents in a delivery vehicle
  • Claims for injuries caused by a faulty delivery vehicle
  • Claims for injuries sustained when carrying heavy packages
  • Claims for failure to adequately train staff
  • Claims for dangerous packages.
