    How to claim archaeologist injury compensation


    When most people think of archaeologists, a combination of the characters from the films “The Mummy” and “Indiana Jones” probably come to mind. The reality is a little bit more dusty, a little bit less glamorous – but no less dangerous than the heroes of our favourite films portray! Archaeologists work to uncover remains and artefacts at historical sites, but may also be involved in large-scale excavations in the UK and abroad, on land and at sea. For those who have been injured on the job, archaeologist injury compensation is available which could cover your lost earnings, helping you get back on your feet to return to the job you love. Just contact Accident Advice Helpline to find out more.

    How did your injuries happen?

    When you’re working on an excavation or dig, your employer takes responsibility for your safety, so if anything goes wrong and you’re injured (with the exception of a Mummy’s curse), you could claim archaeologist injury compensation from your employer. But what’s the worst that could happen?

    • Trapped or crushed due to a building or dig collapse
    • Respiratory illness from inhaling toxic dust and materials
    • Eye and facial injuries
    • Broken bones, back and head injuries after a fall from height
    • Injuries caused by sharp excavation tools, such as minor cuts and serious lacerations which could lead to infection
    • Head injuries caused by objects falling from height
    • Slip, trip or fall leading to minor or serious injuries

    If you’ve been injured as an archaeologist – and we do mean real injuries that were caused by another person, not Indiana Jones style escapades which you yourself are to blame for – then you could claim compensation, whether it’s your employer or a colleague who is at fault.

    Why should you claim?

    Injuries at work could be reported to the HSE if you are concerned that other archaeologists in your team could be affected. If your workplace is unsafe, you’re perfectly entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation if you’ve been left suffering and in pain after an accident. Your injuries can affect your family too – emotionally and financially, so take steps to make things right by calling Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 today.

    It’s free to call and get confidential advice from our team of personal injury advisors, and there is no obligation to proceed with a claim. Plus, our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee** basis, so you could make a claim without having to worry about legal fees.
