The solicitors at JMW have, for many years been the legal experts who victims and their families turn to when they need to get their lives back on track following an accident. No matter what your circumstances, we can help and provide you with the expertise you need to get you the compensation you deserve.
What Our Clients Say
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:
- High-sided vehicles
- 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.
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.
We handle all claims with the care and sensitivity they deserve, and with the determination required to ensure you get the maximum amount of compensation for the pain and suffering caused by your employer’s negligence.
The personal injury team at JMW believes in full transparency when it comes to handling claims for compensation, meaning you will be updated on the progress of your case and told what your options are in language you understand.
