    How to claim garden blower injury compensation


    There are plenty of electric garden tools that can make light work of various jobs in the garden. While individuals are likely to have one or two of these – a lawn mower being the most popular in most cases – gardeners will likely have access to them all. If you work for a landscaping company you will probably be provided with the tools by your boss.

    Garden blowers are sometimes referred to as leaf blowers. They are used in gardens where the surrounding trees and bushes regularly drop their leaves as autumn approaches. If these leaves are not regularly tidied up and taken away, it can leave the garden looking rather untidy. That’s why landscapers will regularly use garden blowers at that time of year.

    Wearing safety equipment

    If you use this type of tool in your work, you should be given proper safety equipment to ensure you are not in any danger while using it. For example, goggles and a face mask are particularly worthwhile, as they can prevent leaves or leaf parts flying up into your eyes and scratching them. You’ll also be able to avoid breathing in the dust while you do the job. Your employer should provide this equipment for you so you can stay safe while working.

    Garden blower injury compensation may be a possibility if you work for a landscaping company and your boss did not provide this equipment before you started work. However, there might also be occasions when you are injured in other ways, perhaps because the garden blower was not in good condition or worthy of being used in the first place.

    Considering a potential garden blower injury compensation claim

    When you suffer an injury of this nature with this type of garden equipment, your first thought will be to assess that injury to determine whether medical advice is required. Often it is best to get an injury assessed, particularly as it will provide proof that might be used if you do make a claim later on.
