The potential dangers associated with working in the roofing trade are numerous and there is a steady stream of roofing worker accident claims in the UK. A personal injury claim of this type can be filed if you have suffered an accident at work and are able to prove that it was not your fault.
Personal injury claims are designed to recover the cost of medical treatment and the additional financial outgoings the accident has caused. Our team of expert lawyers will assist you in identifying who is to blame for the accident and do their utmost to ensure you are awarded the maximum amount of compensation possible.
Working on roofs is inherently hazardous and there are many factors that can result in an accident occurring. A very windy day could cause you to lose your balance and fall; the scaffolding may have rotting or unstable floor boards or the components used to assemble it may be worn, damaged or fitted incorrectly. It might also be that the person who is to blame for causing the accident is another tradesman or company.
Accident Advice Helpline will first help you identify who is liable and then begin the process of putting together a claim for compensation on your behalf. Our specialist solicitors have many years of experience in various areas of personal injury law and will endeavour to complete the entire legal process in as short a time as possible.
The immediate effects of the injuries you have sustained as a result of your accident are not the only things that need to be taken into account when putting a claim together.Open Claim Calculator
Our lawyers will look at factors such as how long your recovery period is likely to be, when you might expect to return to work and how much and what type of treatment will be required in order to make a full recovery.
It could be that you will never be in a position to return to work and steps must then be taken to estimate what level of compensation will be required to cover the loss of earnings such a prolonged period of incapacity will bring.
If you are in any doubt about whether you have grounds for making a valid claim for compensation you should contact Accident Advice Helpline on our free 24-hour helpline. By making a simple phone call you will be gaining access to a member of our staff who will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding your accident.
Should you subsequently decide to appoint us to act on your behalf, the solicitor allocated to you will first ask you to provide a detailed account of the accident. He or she will also require you to give permission for your medical report to be released and explain your rights during the compensation claim process.
If you would like an estimate of approximately how much your personal injury claim is likely to be worth our website features a short questionnaire, which takes around 30 seconds to complete.
