Window cleaner accidents
If you are a window cleaner that has had an accident in the last three years, Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you make a claim for compensation.
Each year numerous window cleaners are injured in accidents that ultimately were not their fault. If you were one of them then it is important you seek the financial compensation you could be entitled to before the time runs out. You have up to three years from the date of your accident to initiate a claim. After this our North Norfolk personal injury claims solicitor will not be able to help you.
When it comes to making North Norfolk personal injury claims one of the most important things to establish is who is liable for the accident and therefore the injury itself. Without someone else being liable it will not be possible to make a claim for compensation.
For window cleaners, the individual liable for their accidents varies, and is all dependent on the precise situation of their claim.
For example, if you work for a firm and have been injured as a result of faulty equipment or lack of training, then there is a good chance that your employer is going to be liable. This is especially true if it is their equipment you are working with.
For example, one window cleaner we helped recently made a successful claim after the ladders he was working with proved to be faulty. The fault with the ladders caused him to fall from a significant height and break his leg.
Another client who was self employed was injured after being attacked by a client’s dog. In this situation the client had failed to ensure that their property was safe for the cleaner, who they were expecting to enter the property.
Some window cleaners are injured after they have been involved in road traffic accidents. In this situation their occupation has no bearing on the accident, but purely on their ability to earn depending on the injuries suffered. In such situations, our North Norfolk personal injury claims solicitors can help recover any lost earnings as part of the settlement process.
