Roofing accident at work
If your line of work requires you to be on a roof, your employer has a responsibility and a duty of care to keep you safe. You should feel safe at work, regardless of what industry you work in and if you suffered an accident which resulted in an injury you may want to find out what your rights are.
Falling from a roof could leave you with serious injuries due to the height and impact involved. You may have broken a bone or several bones and needed urgent medical attention. You may have experienced other injuries while working on a roof, and if it has happened recently, in the last three years, we would like to speak to you about compensation.
Why make a claim?
Being injured is bad enough but if you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence then that can be incredibly frustrating. Making a claim for compensation for injuries sustained at work is your right and your employer will most likely have insurance to cover these situations. A solicitor in Thornton Cleveleys can help make a claim on your behalf on a no win, no fee basis.
Making a claim can make the working environment a safer place for other employees too as it forces your employer to take the lapse in safety seriously. If proper Health and Safety had been followed on the day of your injury, it is likely that your accident could have been avoided.
