Entitled to claim compensation for a fall from height in Neath?
Working off the ground is always dangerous, and a fall from height in Neath can result in all kinds of injuries from minor bumps to broken bones or even serious internal injuries or brain damage.
The type of injuries sustained will depend on the equipment and support that you are provided with, along with the height from which you fall. The higher you are the greater the impact will be. It is usually areas such as the head, back and torso that take the majority of that impact.
At Accident Advice Helpline we handle hundreds of claims from people who have had a fall from height in Neath. They may have fallen whilst performing routine tasks in the workplace. Tasks that could have been avoided if they had been given adequate support and equipment in order to do their jobs.
It is the responsibility of the employer to reduce the risk of accidents and injuries. Negligence can leave them open to legal action, and the victim potentially eligible to make a claim for compensation.
