Falls From a Height

The consequences of a fall from a height at work can be life-changing. People who are victims of a workplace fall from a height are often absent from work as a result of their injuries and suffer loss of earnings as a result. Furthermore, in some cases, a person may be unable to return to work due to the circumstances surrounding the fall or severity of the injuries they have sustained, meaning they lose earnings for the rest of their life.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are my employer’s obligations?

Your employer is legally obliged to provide a safe working environment for you so that the possibility of an accident at work is kept to a minimum. They’re also responsible for providing appropriate training for handling goods and machinery, as well as supplying suitable safety equipment. If these rules aren’t followed they could be liable for negligence.

What types of injuries could I make a claim for?

Although not exhaustive, these are the type of claims we regularly deal with: 

  • Falls and trips 
  • Back injury
  • Neck injuries 
  • Head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries 
  • Falls from height 
  • Falling objects 
  • Soft tissue injury
  • Tendon Injuries 
  • Burns and scars 
  • Inadequate protective equipment 
  • Inadequate training 
  • Noise induced hearing loss 
  • Illness and disease 
  • Dermatitis
What's a risk assessment?

Upon receipt of your instructions, in relation to your accident claim, we’ll advise what, if any, documentation/information is required from you to enable us to complete the risk assessment.

Assessing the risks involved in litigation is a key element of a Conditional Fee Agreement. It’s a crucial step when trying to determine the likelihood of success in any particular case and will involve consideration of all the available evidence. We’ll complete a risk assessment within two working days of receiving the required documentation/information and advise you of the outcome.

You won’t be charged for us to carry out a risk assessment, but if your claim is successful, we’ll look to recover the costs incurred on your behalf from the negligent third party.

How long will it take?

Every case is unique so it’s difficult to give a precise time frame as it depends on a number of factors. If liability is admitted during our investigation into the cause of your injury, the case will be settled significantly quicker than if it’s disputed. Another factor that can speed up a claim is if you return any documentation we send you as soon as possible and respond quickly to any questions we may have.

The extent of your injury also has a huge bearing on your case. Generally, the more serious the injury and the long-term implications of it, the longer it may take to fully calculate your claim’s value. We’re also bound by Civil Procedure rules, which allow the defendant’s solicitors time to investigate the circumstances around your injury before they have to respond to us.

Will I have to go to court?

We can never say a case won’t go to trial or final hearing, but it’s unlikely. It’s often better if your case doesn’t go to trial as the issue of court proceedings, and the amount of work that goes into preparing and arguing your case, can considerably extend the time it takes to settle your claim. Whether it goes to trial or final hearing depends on your case’s prospects and the stance that the defendant takes.

How long do I have to make a claim?

Generally, you can make a claim for compensation up to three years from the date of your injury. This is what we call the limitation period. There are, however, some circumstances where the limitation period is two years. To find out more, call us.
