    Compensation for a fall during building work


    Building work often involves operating dangerous machinery, working at height or other tasks which could be dangerous, if proper precautions are not taken. Did you know that falls from height account for the most workplace fatalities? Luckily, most accidents can be avoided if the Work at Height Regulations 2005 are followed.

    If you have suffered a fall during building work, you may be wondering who is responsible for your accident. Whilst it’s not always clear who is to blame, your employer does have responsibilities to meet when it comes to keeping you safe at work, and if they have breached regulations, you may be able to make a claim for compensation. A fall during building work could occur in a variety of different situations, and you could be left with life-changing injuries. This may mean you’re unable to return to work, which can have a serious financial impact on your family.

    The best way to find out if you could make a claim for compensation is to get in touch with a reputable personal injury lawyer – ideally one who offers a 100% no win, no fee service, giving you one less thing to worry about.

    Injuries suffered in a fall

    Falling from height could leave you seriously injured. Here are a few examples of the types of injury you could suffer:

    • Facial or head injuries – such as concussion or brain injury
    • Spinal injuries which could leave you paralysed
    • Muscle or tendon injuries
    • Broken bones
    • Cuts and bruises
    • Neck/shoulder injuries

    No matter how you have been injured, if someone else is to blame you deserve to be compensated. So it’s a good idea to contact a personal injury lawyer and find out whether you are eligible to make a claim.
