If you have been injured while working as a steeplejack then you should contact Accident Advice Helpline to learn if you can make a steeplejack accident claim. The dangers involved with working at height are obvious. Steeplejacks do this every day while carrying out repairs and maintenance on buildings such as clock towers, industrial chimneys and other high structures.
Steeplejack injuries are usually very serious. Life-threatening injuries and even fatalities have occurred in the past due to falls from structures that are hundreds of feet tall. We can claim if you or a loved one was injured due to a steeplejack accident at work. Safety equipment is of paramount importance during a working day and harnesses will protect employees from a fall. Possible causes of accidents can include unsafe scaffolding and weak brickwork. If you were standing on a platform and it gave way then someone might be at fault. We make steeplejack accident claims against those at fault, which is a process known as a personal injury compensation claim.

Thousands of people across the UK are suffering in silence when they could be making a claim to secure money that will improve their financial situation. Even a small sum could allow you to pay for medical bills and other costs incurred by a steeplejack accident. It could be the most important call you make. Let our legal experts work for you.
Steeplejack accident claim regulations
Steeplejack injuries are filed under work accident and illness compensation claims. Work accidents can be caused by faulty equipment or a lack of training. It is your employer’s duty to minimise steeplejack hazards and risks. Assessments must be carried out before you work to ensure it is safe situation. The building owner could also be liable if stonework in disrepair went unnoticed. Making a steeplejack accident claim is the only way of bringing those at fault to justice.
Compensation will help you if you have taken time off work due to your injuries, which can range from spinal injuries to broken bones. Life can change following an accident and you might be wheelchair bound or be classed as disabled. A steeplejack accident claim will compensate you for these life changes. It could also pay for the cost of travel appointments at a private hospital and any medical treatment you require.
