Have you been involved in a workplace accident in Tendring? Well, we here at Accident Advice Helpline want to help you out. On this page, we are going to walk you through the process of making a claim should you have been injured working from a height.
However, for the most part, much of this information should be the same regardless of your injury.
Can you make a claim after a workplace accident in Tendring?
Just because you have fallen from height at work does not necessarily mean that you are able to make a claim for compensation. Before we can deal with your workplace accident in Tendring claim, we will need to take a look at a few different things:
- You must have been injured in your fall, severely enough to need medical attention
- You must have been involved in the incident within the last three years.
The most important thing that needs to be determined, however, is negligence. You will be able to make a claim with Accident Advice Helpline if you can prove that your injury was down to the negligence of your employer, or someone else you worked with.
As you may well know, your employer has a duty of care towards you in the workplace. It is their responsibility to ensure that you stay safe. If they breach this duty of care, perhaps by not supplying you with the right safety equipment, or by, perhaps, asking you to work from a height that you are not trained to work from, you will be able to make a claim.
What can Accident Advice do to help?
If you believe that you have grounds to make a claim for compensation or, perhaps, wish to discuss your case in a bit more depth, all you need to do is pick up that phone and give us a call. Our team of friendly advisors will walk you through the various options that you have available to you.
If you wish to proceed with your claim, our advisors will ask for a few different pieces of evidence from you. The evidence required will be dependent on what caused your fall from height. After this, the rest is in our hands. We will work incredibly hard to ensure that you are able to claim as much compensation as possible for the injuries you suffered due to the negligence of your employer.
