Each year, hundreds of accidents happen in the workplace and, the startling fact is, that many of these accidents could have been prevented. If you have suffered because your employer has not adhered to health and safety procedures, an injury claims solicitor in Auldgirth can help you make a claim against them.
One health and safety regulation looks at the safety of working at height and our specialist injury solicitors have worked with many people to claim compensation for injuries sustained in falls.
Height regulations are not about ‘how high?’ but how to prevent falling from height. Hence, a fall from height can be anything above 2 feet, although for those people who fall from high places can be severely injured – some with life-changing injuries.
How a specialist injury claims solicitor in Auldgirth can help
As with all other compensation claims for all injuries, there are factors and criteria that need to be satisfied before you can make a claim for compensation.
If you’ve suffered an accident at work, make sure you complete (if you can!) an accident form, documenting the fall from height. Clearly, depending on the depth of your injuries this might not be possible for you to do at the time. However, all significant accidents at work will merit the involvement of the Health & Safety Executive and, depending on the findings of their investigation, you may have the first factor addressed and that is who is responsible for your fall?Open Claim Calculator
- Liability – in order to have a successful claim, your injury claims solicitor in Auldgirth will need to be satisfied that the fall from height was not your fault. In other words, you must have followed all procedures but, if the equipment was faulty and the company should have had it serviced or repaired, then liability could very well lie at their door.
- Within the last 3 years – you must be attempting to make a claim for compensation with Accident Advice Helpline within three years of the date of your accident.
- Medical treatment – and finally, all possible claimants for compensation must have received treatment for their injuries from a recognised medical professional. This way, your injuries will be correctly assessed and the award can be set accordingly.
