Fall from Height at Work

If you have suffered an injury in a fall from height at your workplace Aly & Hulme Associates can help you get the compensation you deserve. Our personal injury solicitors have claimed hundreds of thousands of pounds in compensation for people just like you.

Ladder Accident Compensation Claims

There are certain things you must be able to establish before you can claim compensation for a fall from height at work:

  • You suffered the injury in the last 3 years
  • That your employer was in some way to blame
  • That the accident and your injuries are the fault of your employer or a fellow employee
  • Falls from height are one of the most common types of injury suffered at work and the injuries which result are often among the most serious. These include:

  • Broken Bones
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Leg & Knee injuries
  • Arm & Shoulder injuries
  • Obviously, there are certain professions which are more at risk than others. For example, construction workers, roofers, warehouse operatives and window cleaners are all required to operate at height. As well as falls from ladders, these employees are also at risk of falling from scaffolding, racking, stairs, ledges or through windows, skylights or fragile surfaces.

    If you, or a family member, are facing a serious injury with potential life-changing impact, managing everything becomes even more challenging. Aly Hulme & Associates will help.

    The Working at Height regulations protect workers who are required to work in elevated areas. The regulations impose obligations on employers which are designed to protect your safety. These regulations protect any employees working above ground level. This includes workers using machinery or scaffolding and even workers who are required to change a lightbulb.

    Employers are obliged to provide the right tools and materials which are in good working order. In addition, dangerous areas should be appropriately signposted and guarded.
