If you ever reach the point where you need ladder fall injury advice, it could be to your advantage to call Accident Advice Helpline. Apart from the fact that it will not cost you anything to call our free, 24-hour helpline, we really do have the expertise that you need at a time like this.
A fall from a ladder can be potentially life changing. You could easily suffer head injuries or broken bones. A broken back, for example, could see your mobility being affected for the rest of your life.
If you have been injured in this way, you may find that you are not only out of work for a couple of months or so, but that you are unable to return to the same job. A lack of work, no matter how long this lasts, means that your income could drop dramatically. This is just one of the reasons why you should make a claim for compensation.
Can I really make a claim?
When you seek ladder fall injury advice, our team will explain to you that it is the responsibility of your employer to make sure that you are safe when you are using equipment such as a ladder. They should have arranged training so when you have to work at height you know what you are doing and are able to do so safely.
They should also have a number of other safety measures in place, and that includes ensuring that you do not have to work alone at such a time. If this is not then case then they could be held responsible for any accidents that occur.
You can make a claim if you have suffered a loss of earnings as a result of your accident, and this will be true for most people, even if the injury is only minor. Time will be needed for your recovery and there are many employers that do not provide full sick pay at a time like this.
You need to know that there is a financial solution to this problem and compensation is part of that. The compensation will cover your loss of earnings as well as any other expenses that you may have incurred as a direct result of the injury. This could include travel expenses and additional healthcare costs such as counselling.
What should I do?
Gather all the information that you have on your accident and call Accident Advice Helpline. A member of our team will work out if you are in a good position to make a claim and then you can rely on our personal injury solicitors to see your claim through to the end.
