If you were injured working on a building site or while at home, you may now be wondering, can I claim for a plastering accident? You may have been plastering yourself, or have been injured as the result of plastering work carried out by others. In both cases, you may be able to claim financial compensation for your injuries. Check with Accident Advice Helpline today on 0800 689 0500 to see what your claim could be worth.
Your plastering accident
If you were working as a plasterer at the time of your accident, you may be covered by a number of health and safety regulations regarding the workplace. If you were using equipment owned or maintained by your employer, any faults or malfunctions in this equipment could strengthen your case for compensation. You may have been exposed instead to a dangerous working environment: the area you were plastering at the time of your accident may have been fundamentally unsafe. The site owner, which could be a company or an individual, is legally obliged to ensure your safety while you work.
You may also have been injured by plastering carried out by someone else. Perhaps some part of the plastering carried out by others fell on you or made the space you were working or living in fundamentally unsafe. Whatever the precise circumstances, if your plastering accident was caused by someone else and happened in the last three years, you could make a potentially substantial claim for compensation.
How much could I claim?
The amount of compensation you could be able to receive depends on the circumstances and effects of your plastering accident. Establishing who caused your accident is of key importance. You can start doing this by writing down everything you remember about your accident, including times and dates, who else was there at the time, who caused the accident and how, and what effect it had on you. You may have had to seek medical assistance, with potentially significant medical fees linked to this. The effect of the accident on your life may include having to travel to and from hospitals, psychological counselling, time off work and significant stress.
