What do I need to do?
Typically, you will be able to start a claim for compensation if you can show that somebody else caused your gardening accident. You may have been using faulty equipment that was damaged by other people, the terrain in which you were working may have been unsafe and known to be such by your employer, or somebody else, who was working with you, may have injured you. Whether you were working for a private landlord or on public land, if you suffered a personal injury that required medical attention and which was caused by somebody else, you can enquire about the possibility of claiming for financial compensation.
Can I improve my chances of claiming for injury compensation?
You can improve your chances of successfully making a claim by documenting everything you know about your gardening accident. Write down as many details as you can remember, taking photographs if necessary and keep everything clearly filed and ready to show your personal injury lawyer.
Should I try and settle a claim early?
After your personal injury lawyer has contacted the other party or parties involved in your accident and they have admitted they are at fault, he or she will be typically in a position to tell you how much your compensation claim is worth. In many cases, if you are happy with the claim amount, you will be advised to settle.
