About Falling from Height Claims

Falls from height are one of the most common causes of death or serious injury in the workplace. Accidents of this kind usually take place by falling off platforms or falling down a hole. For instance, you might fall from:

  • Scaffolding
  • Ladders
  • Roofing
  • High-sided vehicles
  • Machinery
  • Loading bays

If you have fallen from height at work and, as a result, been left with an injury, no matter how serious, you will be able to make a claim for compensation.

An Employer’s Responsibility

Your employer has a legal duty to keep you safe while you are at work. They must take certain steps to ensure the risk of an accident is reduced as much as possible. If your employer has done any or all of the following, and you have been injured following a fall from height, then you will be entitled to make a claim for compensation:

  • Failed to carry out an adequate risk assessment
  • Provided little to no supervision
  • Provided either no training, or insufficient training
  • Failed to provide suitable equipment
  • Failed to make sure a safe system of work was provided and followed

Our solicitors will gather evidence to prove that your injury was caused by the negligence of your employer so you are able to make a successful claim for compensation.
