Most of us don’t give a second thought to our safety when we’re near windows, either on the ground floor or higher up – but when you think about, there’s the potential for accidents involving windows to occur at any time. Children are particularly at risk of falling from windows, and if you or your child have been injured as a result of somebody else’s negligence, you could claim window fall compensation within three years of your accident.
You’ll need the services of a trusted personal injury lawyer, and with 15 years’ experience, Accident Advice Helpline’s team of lawyers can help make sure you get the compensation you deserve; our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis.
How did your accident happen?
You could fall from a window at work or whilst on holiday staying in a hotel. You could even fall from a window at school, university or in a public place, such as the local library. Falls from height can lead to life-changing injuries and you may suffer spinal injuries, broken bones or even a serious head injury which could affect your future. Head injuries can lead to behavioural changes and mood swings which could make it impossible for you to return to work or live independently, and why should you be the one to suffer if somebody else is liable for your accident?
It might be that you’ve fallen through a window whilst working on a construction site or tumbled through a skylight whilst working on a roof. Or perhaps your child has fallen from a window at school whilst unsupervised. However your accident happened, ask yourself if more could have been done to prevent it from occurring. If your employer or your child’s school could have taken steps to keep you safe, they could be held liable for your accident.
Claiming compensation for minor injuries
Even minor injuries such as broken bones, cuts and bruises could lead to a claim for window fall compensation.
