Chimney sweeping is a profession with some risks. Today it should be safer than ever as better equipment and stricter health and safety rules minimise those risks. If you work as a chimney sweep your employer should do everything they can to prevent accidents at work. If they fail in this responsibility they may be considered negligent if you have an accident.
What you should do in the event of an accident
Most importantly, you should seek medical attention. Even if your injury does not appear serious at first, it is still worth getting it checked. Sometimes injuries are more serious than they first appear. If you do need to make a personal injury claim your solicitor will need medical documentation of your injuries as evidence.
The more information you can give to your lawyer, the better the chances of a successful claim. Record as much detail as you can as soon as possible after the accident. Also find out if anyone witnessed the chimney sweeping accident. If so, find out their names and contact details.
It is also important to record all the details of the expenses and financial losses you experience as a result of your chimney sweeping accident. Chimney sweeping is a physical job so any injury may hinder your ability to work, resulting in dire financial consequences for you and your family. Record all your lost earnings as well as expenses. These will form the basis of your compensation package.
