    Injuries can occur at work no matter what you do for a living.  You do not even have to work in a particularly dangerous environment as the vast majority of accidents in the workplace occur as a result of poor training, lack of personal protection equipment, or lack of health and safety policies.

    We have helped gardeners with accidents involving:

    • Dangerous machinery – gardeners are often required to operate machinery that contains sharp, and fast moving blades.  Generally speaking these machines and pieces of equipment have safety guards to try to ensure that the people operating them will not be injured.  However, if the machinery you are using is defective in some way then you could be put at risk.  Equally, you will be in danger if you have not been trained properly to ensure you know how to use the equipment safely, or if you have not been provided with suitable personal protection equipment which could help protect you against serious injury should something go wrong.  In all of these instances an injury solicitor in Scraptoft would be able to help you make a claim against your employer if you had been injured in some way.  All employers have a duty of care to their staff to ensure their safety as far as is practicable, this includes checking equipment on a regular basis to ensure it is operating properly, providing training to all staff so they know how to perform their jobs safely and operate the tools they need in a safe manner, and providing equipment to keep staff safe, for example, goggles, protective head gear, and gloves.
    • Falls from height – as a gardener it is possible that you will need to work from height at times.  This could be to remove leaves from a gutter, or trim back a tree or particularly large bush.  If you are working at height you should be provided with the correct equipment to do this, if you are not, and are injured as a result, an injury solicitor in Scraptoft may be able to help you make a claim.

    Time limits

    There are strict deadlines in place for making a personal injury claim so do not delay in speaking to an injury solicitor in Scraptoft about your claim.
