Sutton Coldfield claims


Sutton Coldfield claims for injuries suffered while doing gardening chores are something that we here at Accident Advice Helpline are often called upon to help people with when they are seeking compensation. We English do love our gardens, and we are renowned for it across the world, but this love of gardens and gardening can come at a price.

Accident statistics in the garden

Each and every year, somewhere around 300,000 people are injured in their gardens, seriously enough for them to have to attend an A&E department at their local hospital. This figure includes a large number of injuries that are brought about through recreational activities, and not actual gardening, an example being that the figure includes 110,000 children who are injured through play. In terms of injuries sustained through actual gardening itself, the figures are still quite high, totalling some 87,000 or so.

The most common types of garden accidents

The type of accidents that most people (both adults and children) suffer in their gardens are what are referred to in the injury claim industry as slips, trips and falls. This type of accident accounts for approximately 115,000 injuries per year. Injuries by way of cuts, sustained while using sharp implements such as garden shears or sickles, account for another 19,000 incidents per year, while injuries from being struck by falling objects account for another 12,600.

Gardening accidents that qualify for compensation

The vast majority of gardening injuries are, unfortunately, self-inflicted, often coming about through overzealousness or carelessness. We say “unfortunately” because this means that it is not possible to claim compensation for such an injury. The blame has to lie with a third party, rather than the victim, in order to qualify for financial reparation.

The vast majority of gardening injuries in which the blame can be attributed to someone other than the injury victim relate to faulty products — products which have malfunctioned. This type of claim is usually allied with a product liability suit. Of course, it’s important to ensure that any such products are properly maintained to keep them in good, safe, working order.
