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.
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.
