Who caused your accident?
Your accident as a gardener may have been caused by faulty gardening equipment, a dangerous site, other gardeners, your employer, or other people. Working outdoors to transform or upkeep gardens can be very satisfying work. You may have been working for a long time without any incidents occurring, either to you or to your colleagues. When your accident did happen, it may have been the result of your employer’s negligence; the site you are working on may have been left unsafe or your equipment inexpertly handled by others. Your employer is legally bound to safeguard your health and safety, meaning any incident that occurred as a result of a lapse in this care could mean you can claim financial compensation. Other people could also be liable to pay your claim, if they caused your accident.
