If you have suffered a ladder fall at work that was not your fault, you may be entitled to claim for compensation.
Croftons Solicitors can assist you with all areas of your case, providing legal guidance and support as we work to secure a successful conclusion.
Ladder falls can occur anywhere, from factories to construction sites, and if your employer could have done more to prevent the accident, Croftons Solicitors can help you to claim.
Ladder Fall Claims
The most important factor to establish when looking to make a claim for a ladder fall at work is who is to blame for the accident.
If the incident was not your fault, there is a strong chance you will be able to make a successful claim.
Employers have a duty to create a working environment that is as safe as possible, and this is particularly important when an employee is expected to work with high risk equipment such as ladders.
Full safety training should be provided to all new staff, and all the necessary protective equipment must be provided.
All equipment used, including the ladder itself, must be in good condition. Any tools that are to be used whilst on the ladder must be well maintained and have undergone all the legally required safety checks.
It is also vital to note the date of the accident, with claims only able to proceed if an incident occurred within the last three years.
