    Top 5 potential accident claims for a lumberjack

    Due to the nature of the role, working as a lumberjack can lead to many different accidents at work. Even the most skilled of lumberjacks, with years of experience and training, cannot be guaranteed full safety when carrying out their role.

    The role of a lumberjack, with its heavy lifting, strenuous and repetitive motions, and sometimes dangerous and unpredictable surroundings could lead to a work related accident.

    Being a lumberjack is often considered to be in the top 10 of most dangerous occupations.

    The top five potential work-related incident claims for a lumberjack include:

    1. Repetitive straining injuries
    2. Dangling branches which have been caught in other trees and fall without warning
