What are the Most Common Causes of Refuse Collector Injuries?
Refuse collectors are forced to deal with all kinds of waste in a dangerous environment, involving moving vehicles, half-awake motorists and a great deal of manual handling.

Some of the most common causes of refuse collector injuries include miscommunication or negligence, a lack of safety equipment or people and businesses disposing of unsafe materials.

Sharp Object & Needlestick Injury Compensation Amounts
Needlestick injuries or lacerations caused by sharp objects are some of the most common kinds of refuse collector injuries. Broken glass, needles and other sharp objects can all cause cuts or puncture wounds. In many cases, these injuries can quickly become infected and require hospital treatment to prevent long-term injury. Even those injuries without the risk of infection can often cause a great deal of pain and lead to scarring. If you’ve suffered any kind of laceration or needlestick injury, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Manual Handling & Loading Injuries Compensation Amounts
Being forced to move heavy objects, including refuse bags, every day can lead to manual handling injuries. These can often take the form of serious back injuries, muscle strain and much more. Manual handling injuries, or injuries caused by loading a refuse truck, can develop into chronic issues with long-term problems. Whether you’ve suffered a short-term or long-term manual handling injury, you may still be entitled to claim compensation.
£9,500 to £122,350
Trips, Slips & Falls Compensation Amounts
Trips, slips and falls are another common kind of accident which can cause serious health concerns for refuse collectors. The presence of waste on the floor, high curbs and loose surfaces can all cause even the most diligent of refuse collector to slip, trip or fall. In the worst circumstances, slips, trips and falls can lead to serious head injuries or back injuries which can have a major impact on your life. The more serious your injury, the more compensation you could be entitled to.
Up to £307,000
Struck by Moving Vehicles Compensation Amounts
If you’ve been struck by a moving vehicle while working as a refuse collector, you may be entitled to claim for compensation. As most garbage collectors work early in the morning, motorists are often still half-asleep or rushing to get to work. As such, you could suffer all kinds of injuries due to a motorist’s negligence. In some cases, you could even be struck by the refuse trust or bin lorry driver’s negligence. Either way, if you’re struck by any kind of vehicle while working as a refuse collector, Tylers Solicitors is here for you.
