Common causes of accidents
Even though they are used on a daily basis within many industries, statistics have shown that there are an estimated 1,200 serious injuries in the UK every year due to an accident involving ladders.
Failing to follow basic safety precautions will often result in a work-related injury. Most work accidents involve the victim falling from a considerable height, and can often cause serious damage, including broken bones and head injuries. Other common causes of injuries include:
- Lifting heavy loads up and down
- Being struck by falling loads and equipment
- Slips, trips and falls
- Lack of grip or footing
- Attempting to move the ladder while on it
Employers have the responsibility under the Work at Height Regulations Act to make sure their employees are as safe as possible at all times. Ladders should only be used for periods of short duration, and in circumstances where there is low risk or no alternative.
At Grieves Solicitors, our experienced team have the skills and knowledge to provide impartial legal advice. If you have suffered from an injury in the past three years which wasn't your fault, we advise you get in touch as soon as possible.
Making a claim
A fall from height can leave you in serious pain, and may cause permanent damage. Financial compensation is intended to support victims to cover:
