    Whiplash Injury in Coventry

    If you’ve got green fingers, gardening can be a great way to make a living. What could be better than spending your working life out in the elements doing something you enjoy? However, it can be a hazardous business, especially if you haven’t been given the right safety equipment by your employers. It can also be a little on the dicey side if you’re doing your gardening in an area where there are lots of slip, trip or fall hazards around. This could result in you suffering some form of whiplash injury.

    You may find it interesting to know that you might be able to take some form pf personal injury action against your employer if you could prove that your whiplash injury in Coventry came about as a consequence of your employer’s negligent behaviour. You’ll typically have three years in which to take personal injury action, so it will be worth getting your skates on if this is something you’d like to pursue.

    Gardening mishaps and a whiplash injury in Coventry

    Imagine that you were working as a gardener for the council and were sent to a piece of land to plant some new flowers. Firstly you set about clearing a bunch of bracken and weeds. It’s hard work, but you have no worries whatsoever about doing yourself a whiplash injury in Coventry. Once you’ve gotten rid of everything you need to clear, you set about digging the land over. You’ve barely made a start, when you plough your spade into the ground, only for it to snap when you turn the earth over. This causes you to fall to the ground and suffer what appears to be a very nasty whiplash injury indeed.

    After going to your doctor, who confirms that you have in fact sustained a whiplash injury, your thoughts turn to personal injury compensation; and why shouldn’t they? Under the circumstances outlined above, you might be able to take action against your employer if they had not taken steps to ensure that the equipment you were using was 100% safe. Alternatively, the manufacturer of the spade might have a case to answer. This will not be for you to worry about though. That will be the job of your 100% no win no fee personal injury solicitor.
