The main injuries that arise from falling off scaffolding include broken bones, head injuries and neck injuries. If you have been hurt whilst working on scaffolding and it wasn’t your fault, we may well be able to assist you. The accident must have happened in the last three years and the blame must lie with someone else, for instance, an employer who failed to give you the right equipment you needed to do the job. We have vast experience when it comes to dealing with scaffolding-related claims and always do everything in our power to deliver the outcome you require.
Can you claim after falling off scaffolding?
Many people have had accidents such as falling off scaffolding because the scaffolding wasn’t constructed correctly. Missing handrails and loose bolts can cause accidents, as can incorrect construction training. You should be able to grip onto handrails without imbalance occurring. You could become injured around scaffolding when objects fall onto you from above. Objects can be dropped as a result of insufficient lifting training. If you believe you were hurt because your co-workers didn’t receive sufficient training and were still permitted to work on or around the scaffolding, there’s a big chance we will be able to help you.
Please don’t destroy, dispose of or delete any evidence associated with your accident as this could be exactly what we need to get compensation for you. File everything away securely so you can easily hand it over to us when we need it. We have been working on claims related to scaffolding since we were first formed in 2000, and you don’t need any money to start a claim with us. What’s more, we work on a no-win, no-fee* basis.
The time to act is now
As you only have three years from the date of the accident, it’s wise to act sooner rather than later to avoid missing the deadline. Compensation can help you cover all sorts related to the accident and your injuries including lost earnings arising from the time taken off work recovering, medical expenses and much more. You can take our 30-second test online to see if you are eligible to claim and get a compensation estimate. If you’d rather skip this step, just call 0800 689 0500 (landline) or 0333 500 0993 (mobile) to get the information you require about claiming.
