Falls from Height and Scaffolding Accidents

Your employers have a duty of care to ensure your safety is maintained when you are at work on their premises or at an off-site location. They have a legal responsibility for your well-being and should ensure health and safety regulations and guidelines are adhered to. If you feel you have suffered injury due to negligence you can make a personal injury claim. Many people suffer in silence after experiencing an accident which should have been preventable and consequently, have to fund themselves when injuries lead to their lives being disrupted. Professional solicitors at can guide you swiftly through the process on a no win-no fee basis.

Scaffolding accidents in the UK

Health and Safety Executive (HSE) statistics show that for 2014 the construction industry, where there are more likely to be falls from height, is very easily the most dangerous industry for fatal accidents and personal injury. 5% of the UK workforce works within the construction industry but it accounts for 31% of fatal accidents and 10% of reported personal injuries.

Within scaffolding work many combined variables cause a high rate of accidents: using power tools and moving heavy objects above ground level; the increased possibility of slipping, tripping and falling due to temporary walkways and thoroughfares; a higher exposure to the weather and greater problems of communication within the workgroup.

However your employer must ensure all precautions are taken so that your work environment is as risk – free as possible. If you suffer an injury at work and you believe it was someone else’s fault you can make a claim for compensation

Falls from height: Making a claim

The more information you can provide about the incident the greater chance you will have of winning your case. You will need to demonstrate two main factors:

  • Your employer has not fulfilled his duty of care  Make sure that the accident was recorded at work and gather the names of any witnesses. In complex working environments, photographs or diagrams are useful to help clarify how the incident occurred. Our solicitors who specialise in accidents at work will be able to pinpoint any areas of legal negligence.
  • You have been injured or an incident led to a fatality  Access any on-site records that detail how the incident was handled and how your injury was dealt with. Access your GP and hospital records for the courts. Keep all receipts and documents that evidence how your life has changed since the accident. This may include costs for transport or care, medical appointments and costs for treatment.
