Have you suffered a fall from height in Stratford-on-Avon?
Although people can suffer slips, trips and falls anywhere, if you’ve been affected by a fall from height in Stratford-on-Avon, there’s a chance that you will have been injured at work. If you work in the building or construction industry, you may be used to working at height. Although experience can help you to avoid certain risks, you’ll also need the proper equipment to ensure that you don’t sustain an injury at work.
For example, you may need to wear a safety harness when working at height or in an unsafe building. In addition to this, you may need to use specialist safety wear if there is a chance you could get hurt. If you’ve suffered a fall from height in Stratford-on-Avon and you weren’t responsible, you may want to consider making a claim for compensation.
If you were hurt at work and your employer was responsible for the incident, you should feel confident about making a claim against them.
Can you obtain compensation from an employer?
Certainly! Providing you can show that they caused your injury to occur, they should be held legally responsible and you could be able to obtain compensation from them. If you’re worried about losing your job by making a claim, you needn’t be. Your employer won’t be able to punish you for taking legal action following an accident or injury.
In fact, most companies and businesses are required to have insurance in place in case of accidents in the workplace, so your compensation isn’t likely to come directly from company funds.
