Have you suffered a fall from height in Staffordshire?
Although any type of slip, trip or fall can cause someone to sustain serious injuries, any fall from height could have catastrophic consequences. If you attempt to clean your gutters or windows, for example, you may use a ladder to access your property. However, you should only do this if you feel safe and if you’ve made sure that the ladder is stable.
Unfortunately, many people can fall or stumble whilst completing these types of jobs and they can end up with serious injuries. However, if something or someone else has caused your fall, you may be able to take action against them.
If you purchased a new ladder and it was faulty, for example, the manufacturers could be held responsible for your injuries. Similarly, if you had scaffolding put around your property so that you could access the top floor and it wasn’t put up safely, you may be able to make a claim against the company responsible.
Should you make a compensation claim?
If you’ve suffered a fall from height in Staffordshire, you should seriously consider taking legal action. Providing you can show that you weren’t responsible for the incident and that you obtained medical help, it’s likely that you’ll receive compensation for the harm you’ve suffered.
Although a fall from height in Staffordshire could result in you suffering life-threatening injuries, you could make a claim for more minor injuries too, providing you sought medical help for them.

If your accident didn’t occur recently but you’ve yet to make a claim, we may still be able to assist you. We’re often able to help claimants who have been injured in the last three years so there could still be time for you to obtain compensation.
