Gardener injury compensation can be issued to people who suffer injuries to some degree while out gardening. This could happen to professional gardeners if they find themselves in situations that are potentially dangerous and that do cause them injury.
For example, if you are gardening for someone in a self-employed capacity, you would not expect to be hurt while doing so. Yet it could happen. Perhaps their dog is not properly secured and comes out into the garden and attacks you. Perhaps you are clearing a garden and there is asbestos present that later causes you illness, and you were not warned about it even though the owner knew it was there. Perhaps they let you use their lawnmower even though they were aware it was dangerous to use with a faulty cord.
What about gardener injury compensation in other situations?
Some gardeners are employed by landscaping companies and similar outfits to keep gardens in good order. In other cases stately homes and other venues of a similar nature will employ gardeners to make sure the grounds are always looking their best.
In these cases the employers have a clear duty to ensure the gardeners are issued with all the right equipment for the tasks they have to do. They will need to make sure their gardeners receive appropriate training for operating specialist gardening equipment if it is advisable to do so. If none of this happens and someone is injured, compensation might become a distinct possibility.
