    Compensation for workplace fall injuries


    Where do you work? Maybe you’re a construction worker, have a job in the agricultural industry or are employed in retail – or perhaps you work in an office? Wherever your place of work, it’s common for us to think that accidents won’t happen to us. But workplace fall injuries are surprisingly common and can be life-changing.

    A fall from height can leave you paralysed or suffering from serious back, spinal or head injuries, whilst even a trip and fall over cables in the office has the potential to cause serious injury.

    However you’ve been injured, it could be that somebody else (usually your employer) has been negligent, and if this is the case, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline. Don’t worry about expensive legal fees as our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis.

    Have you fallen from height?

    Did you know that falls from height are the leading cause of workplace fatalities in the UK? You don’t need to fall from a great height to sustain serious injuries – you could even fall from a stool or stepladder at the office whilst trying to reach files. Workplace fall injuries could be sustained in a range of accidents from a simple slip or trip on a wet floor or loose carpet tile to a fall from scaffolding or a roof.

    There have been cases of workers sustaining life-changing back injuries after slipping and falling on a wet floor or being left with serious head injuries after tripping and falling on trailing cables in an office. So you don’t need to be a construction worker to suffer serious injuries after a fall at work.

    Is your employer to blame?

    Your employer’s duties include ensuring that you are safe at work. This includes providing you with any training and equipment necessary for you to carry out your job safely. So if you’re working at height on scaffolding, guardrails and safety harnesses should be provided.

    If you’re asked to get files down from a high office shelf, a stepladder should be provided – and it should be well-maintained and safe to use.

    If you’ve been injured and your employer hasn’t taken steps to keep you safe at work, or if you feel more could have been done to prevent your accident, you can make a claim for personal injury compensation by calling Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500.
