Fall at work
A fall can happen whether you work in an office, factory or building site but working at height, is particularly dangerous.
Your employer has a duty of care to provide safe working conditions and reduce the risk of an employee falling. When this protection is not in place and a worker falls, they can be left with serious injuries or even killed.
Employers should consider whether certain tasks could be carried out from ground level if the right equipment is provided. If there is no alternative to working from height, protective measures should be in place to reduce the risk of serious injury
There are certain jobs which mean some workers are more at risk of a fall from height, particularly those that use:
- Cherry pickers or cranes
If you or a loved one have been injured by a fall from height, our solicitors could help you claim compensation.
We’ll investigate whether your employer failed to meet their obligations to keep you safe in the workplace and work with you to build a case for compensation.
We help clients who have suffered sprains, broken bones and head injuries as well as supporting victims of more serious incidents such as multiple bodily injuries, traumatic brain injury and death.
