Compensation for a Ladder Accident


How to find out if you are entitled to compensation for a ladder accident

Mention ladders and people of a certain age will immediately think of George Formby cleaning windows. Unfortunately, working with ladders can be dangerous and it only takes one person not to follow Health and Safety procedure and a serious accident can occur. Many have died from falling off ladders, others have broken various bones and some have ended up in a coma and never fully recovered from their fall.

Superstition tells us that it is unlucky to walk underneath ladders. There is actually a great deal of common sense in that message as people who walk underneath ladders have had the person on the ladder falling on top of them. Another danger from walking underneath ladders is from workmen’s tools falling on your head and causing you damage.

A 30 second test

If you have been unlucky enough for one of these things to happen to you, you should find out if you are entitled to compensation for a ladder accident. After you have received medical attention, you should telephone Accident Advice Helpline, a compensation provider and law firm for personal injury compensation. A trained adviser will guide you through a 30 second test which will establish whether you are likely to get compensation for a ladder accident.

After that, an online calculator will estimate how much compensation for a ladder accident you may get if an accident solicitor represents you and wins. This would be on a no win no fee* basis. All solicitors who work with Accident Advice Helpline operate in this manner.

Established in 2000

Having a ladder accident has probably shaken you up badly and you feel nervous about making a claim. However, you do not need to worry as Accident Advice Helpline has been established since 2000 and has helped thousands of people win compensation for their injuries. The trained advisers are aware that you might be feeling ill or jittery if you’ve fallen off a high ladder; you can rest assured that your call will be treated sympathetically.

Most claims can be processed by telephone although you may have to attend one additional medical assessment. Most claimants do not need to attend court. Obviously, money will not take away how you feel if you are ill and finding it hard to walk but it will help ease the financial worry if you find that you can no longer work.

If you want to find out if you are entitled to compensation for a ladder accident, you should ring Accident Advice Helpline without delay. It is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The number is 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993.
