Do you need to claim compensation in Southampton for a gardening related injury?
With warm temperatures spreading across most of the United Kingdom, many people are taking the opportunity to get out into their gardens. As bad weather and cold temperatures can prevent you from gardening in the winter, and even the spring months, you may find that there are lots of jobs you want to catch up on.
For example, you may want to cut the grass or plant flowers on your property. If you’re undertaking a more adventurous project you may even be planning to lay a new patio or to install decking in your garden.
Whatever type of job you’re planning on doing, it’s likely that you will use electrical tools at some point. Even straightforward jobs, like lawnmowing, often require the use of electrical mowers and strimmers.
Although these types of tools are used in gardens across the country, they can be very dangerous and they can cause serious injuries. If your machinery doesn’t work properly or the safety guards don’t protect you effectively, you could be seriously hurt and the manufacturers may be at fault. If you’ve suffered these type of injuries and it wasn’t your fault, why not consider making a claim for compensation in Southampton?
Of course, it isn’t only electrical tools that could cause an injury. If a more traditional gardening tool isn’t manufactured properly or comes apart due to poor construction, you could also be hurt. Fortunately, you may still be able to make a claim for compensation in Southampton, providing you can show that you weren’t at fault.
If you work for a gardening or landscaping company, you may be able to make a claim if you were hurt or suffered an injury at work. Although you will need to prove that your employers were responsible for your injuries, a personal injury lawyer will be able to help you to collect all the evidence you need to support your claim for compensation in Southampton.
