Falls from Height Injury Claims

Home » Falls from Height Injury Claims

We are specialists in handling compensation claims in virtually every type of workplace.

Falls from height are particularly dangerous and usually lead to very serious injuries being suffered, sometimes even deaths.

Because of the potentially very serious consequences of a fall, this is an area that has been given special attention by the lawmakers.

Work at height is vigorously regulated and the Health and Safety Executive frequently prosecute employers found to have exposed employees to risks of falls in contravention of the many regulations.

If you suffer a fall from height at work, it is very likely that you will be able to make an injury claim for compensation. See our case study of a fall from height claim we have run.

Fall from height accident claims we have run successfully include:

  • Falls involving scaffolding which is often defective or incomplete
  • Falls from ladders and platforms like “cherry pickers”
  • Falls from poorly planned work at height or from untidy workplaces at height
  • Falls suffered in the construction industry
  • Falls where no harnesses or nets have been used

There are many more types of accidents caused by falls or by inadequately planned work at height where we have won claims.

Remember; employers are under enhanced duties to try to ensure that you are able to carry out work at height in the safest way possible.

Employers must ensure that your work at height complies with the many specific regulations and they have to carry insurance.

Some people fear that their employer might sack them if they claim, but the law affords you some protection, so ask us about that.

We can help you with your fall from height compensation claim and we can assist you with advice on employment issues and with welfare benefits advice.
