Falling From Ladders
Injuries involving ladders including step ladders are among the most common matters that result in compensation claims arising against an employer. If a ladder breaks then it is almost certain that liability will attach to the employer.
Almost 15% of all major injuries sustained at work arise as a result of a fall from height in the workplace and there are now many regulations that employers have to comply with to satisfy Health & Safety requirements.
If you have sustained injury whilst working at height and/or using ladders at work it is essential that you seek legal advice as there will be a need to ascertain whether your employer has been in breach of any of the Health & Safety Regulations and which particularly in this field must be strictly complied with.
Please call and speak with Bernard Clayton who has extensive knowledge of the Regulations and hence will be able to advise whether a compensation claim would have good prospects of success.
