If you need expert tiler injury advice, look no further than the personal injury specialists at Accident Advice Helpline. If you were injured in an accident that was not your fault, we can help you claim the compensation you deserve.
As a tiler, there are a number of risks in the job. One is a laceration from the tools involved in cutting the tiles. This may not always be anyone’s fault, but if the tools were defective in any way, your employer may be considered negligent.
Another risk is a back injury from carrying heavy loads. Your employer should have safety guidelines as to how many tiles one person can reasonably carry without the risk of injury. If you are expected to carry too many and are injured as a result, your employer may be considered negligent.
As a tiler, you will need to use adhesives and grout. You should be provided with overalls and gloves to prevent these from coming into contact with your skin and causing irritations and allergic reactions.

If you suffer a tiler injury, you should always seek medical advice. With the correct treatment, you should soon be on the mend. If you are making a personal injury claim, it will be important to have medical records that document your injury.
Record as much detail as you can about the accident and make a note of the names and contact details of any witnesses. Your lawyer may need to speak to them. If possible, take a photograph of the hazard that caused your injury. This is usually easy to do now that most mobile phones have cameras.
Keep records and receipts of all the costs caused by your accident. Even small ones – like prescription charges or transport to medical appointments – can soon add up. If you are unable to work you may have lost a considerable amount of income. This should also be recorded. All these records will help form the basis of your compensation package.
