    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Compensation solicitor in Brae

    Workplace injuries can happen in the most safe of environments but when a job involves working at elevated heights, the risk of an accident increases tenfold. Just watching construction workers operating many feet above the ground can bring on a touch of vertigo for those who prefer to have their feet planted firmly on the ground.

    Whilst some falls are just pure accidents, others are caused by a lapse in health and safety. When these regulations are not taken seriously employees are placed in a vulnerable environment.

    Compensation Solicitor in Brae: When there is a lapse in Health & Safety

    For example, a stepladder should not be used when a task requires a stronger form of apparatus. Cutting corners and using inappropriate tools could cause a nasty injury. The same applies to using a ladder which has not been properly secured or footed. When a task requires a certain way of doing things or the right tools for the job, nothing else will do.

    Cutting corners to speed things up or using the wrong equipment out of sheer convenience could leave an employer with a lot of time off work to think about the error of his ways.

    Compensation Solicitor in Brae: Never learn bad habits

    Injuries caused through carelessness could range from spinal trauma, concussion, lacerations broken bones. In some instances it could even prove fatal. If someone falls from a great height, the consequences are going to be devastating.
