    How to claim labourer injury compensation


    If you work as a labourer you will know how intense and physical the work can be. You might be required to take on a wide variety of jobs depending on what is required of you from your employers. You might fetch and carry things for bricklayers, electricians and builders, depending on what type of labourer you are and who you work for.

    It is perhaps not surprising then to learn that labourers can potentially be in danger of suffering a variety of injuries. Injuries to the hands, fingers and knees are quite common, although back injuries are perhaps most common of all. These can potentially occur through using incorrect lifting procedures – something that can be resolved simply by attending manual handling training provided by your employer.

    The role of your employer

    It is very important to recognise that your employer has a duty to make sure you are safe at work and can tackle your required tasks very easily. You should never be put into situations where the risk of injury is significant, because there has been no risk assessment undertaken before you started work. While most employers do take every care in protecting every single one of their employees, this is not always the case. This is why some people look to win labourer injury compensation.

    Slips, trips and falls can be more likely to occur when the workplace has not been properly assessed for all the likely risks. The employer must assess the tasks to be done and provide solutions to potential risk areas. When this occurs the odds of anyone being injured should drop dramatically, thanks to the health and safety rules followed by the employer.

    Accident Advice Helpline has already been able to win compensation for people who have been injured while doing a labourer job. Labourer injury compensation can range from small sums to significant ones, depending on a number of factors. For example, in the most serious of cases where someone is paralysed, perhaps due to a fall, the compensation is likely to be much higher.
