The top 3 causes of work accidents are slips, trips and falls. It is therefore unsurprising that every year there are thousands of ladder accidents reported throughout Scotland and the UK.
If your job requires that you use a ladder, then it is your employer’s duty to make sure that you have received adequate ladder training. Failure to do so can result in serious injury cause by a ladder accident. If you have suffered an injury due to an accident at work then you may be entitled to a personal injury compensation claim.
If you have been injured at work and are able to show that your accident occurred due to the negligence of another party, then you can claim for compensation. Being injured can also mean taking time off work, which would result in a loss of earnings. Personal injury claims can help secure financial backing to help during this period.
As with any injury claim it is important to gather all the information you can in order to build a solid case.
This includes anything from notes of injuries, witnesses, injury treatments you went through, to photos of the scene if possible. These are all best done at the time of your ladder accident, so as to be as accurate as possible.
