Have you had a fall from a height in Ealing?
If you work at heights, your employer should provide you with protective gear and equipment. A safety harness could save your life. If you are doing repairs to your home, you also need safety gear to ensure you can work safely.
A fall from a height in Ealing may not be life-threatening. Perhaps you were using a ladder and one of the rungs gave way, causing you to fall. Equipment should be checked regularly and if you were given a ladder that was not in a good condition by your boss, you may be able to make a claim for your injuries if you can prove negligence caused your accident and injury.
What must I prove to make a claim?
In order to be able to make a claim for personal injury you have to prove three things.
- You were not to blame for the accident in which you were injured.
- Someone else caused the accident because of their negligence or reckless behaviour.
- You had medical treatment as soon as was possible after the accident.
If the police were at your accident scene they will have investigated the causes of it. When they have completed their investigations, they will write up an accident report. This should prove that you were not to blame for it. Their report can be used as supporting evidence for your claim.
Your medical records can show when you received medical treatment and can also be used as evidence.
If you think you have a claim to make contact us at Accident Advice Helpline now.
