Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we are sometimes asked for specialist solicitors in Abergele to handle personal injury claims for people who have been injured while carrying out roofing repairs. These injuries come under the category of falls from height, and are some of the most dangerous injuries that people can sustain.
The dangers of working at height
Working at height is a very hazardous occupation. For those whose profession it is, they must undergo specific training to ensure that they are totally familiar with correct procedure and that appropriate equipment and personal protective equipment are used at all times. It is not recommended that non-professionals try to undertake their own roofing repairs, but that they should employ a professional company to carry out the work.
Do you need specialist solicitors in Abergele?
If you’ve suffered a fall, there’s a chance that you might be able to make a claim for compensation, even if you were working at the time of the incident.
If you weren’t responsible for the accident, you should feel able to take legal action. If, for example, the scaffolding you were on was defective and you were hurt as a result, you could make a claim against the manufacturers or the company who installed it.
You’ll also need to prove that you obtained medical treatment following the incident but this should be relatively easy to do as your treatment should be noted in your medical records.
Whilst you may not want to rush into making a compensation claim straight after the accident, you should be aware that most claimants are required to abide by a 3 year deadline. If you fail to take action within this time, you could miss out on the compensation you deserve.
