    Plastering accident injury advice

    Plastering accident injury advice

    If you recently had an accident as a plasterer, or were injured by faulty plastering carried out by someone else, you may be looking for the best plastering accident injury advice you can find. Working as a plasterer, you are likely to have had solid training. The work is highly skilled and your expertise can very marketable. Plasterers are often in high demand and have to travel to different building sites or homes to perform their skill. Your work can be highly satisfying and well-paid, although of course there can also be competition for the best work. Accidents can happen and you may have sustained physical or psychological injuries.

    Your plastering accident may instead have been due to work carried out by others. You may have been injured by faulty plastering either at home or visiting somewhere else, with the plastering falling on you or indirectly causing your accident.

    Despite the circumstances of your accident, Accident Advice Helpline can give you highly skilled plastering accident injury advice. We have been helping people who have had personal injuries they did not cause themselves since 2000, giving us wide-ranging and years of experience.

    Health and safety regulations at work

    Working as a plasterer, you are covered by a number of health and safety regulations. If you were working for someone else, that employer is legally bound to ensure your working environment and your equipment is safe and well maintained. If this was not the case, and your plastering accident was caused by a risky workplace or faulty tools, you could potentially raise a claim for financial compensation against your employer.

    Your accident

    If your plastering accident was caused by plastering falling on you, or exposing you to unexpected risks, you could also contact Accident Advice Helpline to check if you have a potential claim for compensation. The plastering done in your home or in the residence or workplace you were visiting should be at an acceptable standard. If the plastering was carried out to an inadequate standard, meaning it fell down or injured you in another way, you could raise a claim against the people who worked on it.

    Document what you remember about your accident

    One of the best things you can do to start your claim for financial compensation is to write down as much as you can remember about your plastering accident. Note down the time, date and location of your accident, how your injuries were sustained, who else was involved or witnessed the event and take photographic evidence if you can. Keep your medical records, including any receipts for prescriptions or treatment, and receipts for any travel relating to your accident and medical treatment.
