Experiencing a fall in the workplace
You have the right to safety within your workplace and with many health and safety laws and regulations in place in the UK, workplace accidents should be a rare occurrence. If you have suffered a fall at work it is important that you seek professional legal advice as soon as possible.
Falls at work are most common in job roles which involve working at a height, such as on roofs and ladders, or in situations where there are holes in the floor or ground. People who work in these roles should be provided with the correct personal protective equipment (PPE), such as harnesses and hardhats.
A fall at work can cause serious injuries such as brain trauma, spinal injuries and sadly can sometimes be fatal. These accidents can occur as a result of negligence from a colleague or employer, faulty or incorrect equipment or because full training has not been given.
Our personal injury lawyers will make sure that your fall at work injuries are fully assessed by a trained medical professional so you can claim the full amount of compensation that you are entitled to.
