Receiving window cleaner accident advice from a professional is vital if you have recently had an accident on the job that has resulted in an injury. Injuries sustained by window cleaners are more common than one might imagine and range from minor and temporary to permanent or fatal. While no-one sets out to have an accident, particularly a severe one, it does happen all too frequently. Planning ahead for a potential accident is certainly a wise move, as is gaining expert advice should the time come to file a compensation claim if there is liability on behalf of another party that caused your injury.
Accidents can happen to anyone at any time, regardless of how cautious you are in such a dangerous profession. There is always the possibility of equipment failure, lack of maintenance of equipment or simple negligence. While we cannot reverse your injury and ease your pain and suffering, Accident Advice Helpline can assist in obtaining professional legal advice from a team of expert lawyers so you can take the steps necessary to put things in order.
Falling from a height of one or more storeys whilst cleaning windows is a common hazard related to a window cleaner’s job. As with any job, employers are charged with ensuring that healthy and safety codes are put into place and followed by all employees at all times. There still may be occasions, however, when an accident does occur due to negligence or faulty equipment. An accident of this magnitude could cause serious injuries resulting in pain and suffering, loss of wages, and quickly mounting medical bills.
