    Ladder accidents

    Ladder accident claims

    Thousands of ladder accidents are reported throughout the UK and Scotland each year. 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 caused 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. As a result of your injuries, you may also have to take time off work, which would result in a loss of earnings. Personal injury claims can help secure financial backing to help during this period.

    Ladder accidents can occur as a result of employees not being correctly trained in how to use a ladder, or if the stepladder or ladder you are using is broken or in a state of disrepair.

    Falls from a ladder can result in serious injury, and have a devastating impact on you and your family. Now is the time to contact our expert team at Watermans, who can help you to begin the compensation claim process.

    Making a claim

    How do I make a ladder accident claim?

    Accidents involving ladders can result in serious injury, and if you or someone you know has been injured within the last three years, you may be entitled to compensation.

    Your employer has a duty of care towards their employees, and if they have been negligent and not provided correct ladder training, they may be liable for your injuries.

    If you have suffered a personal injury from a ladder accident in the workplace there are necessary steps you must take for your claim to be successful. It is important to make sure any injuries sustained from the accident receive immediate medical attention. Not only for health reasons, but also because medical records and receipts are crucial evidence in the claims process further down the line.

    You should also report the accident to your employer as soon as possible. By making a health and safety record of the event, you’re providing yourself with additional proof, making your claim process easier.

    To determine if you are eligible to make a claim for compensation, contact one of our expert personal injury solicitors today.

    Compensation could cover loss of earnings, help pay for any treatment required and cover other costs incurred as a result of your injuries. It can also compensate for the impact on you and your families – particularly in the case of accidents that involve serious injury or death.

    At Watermans, we offer straightforward legal advice to guide you through the claims process in a friendly and professional way. We take the hassle out of the legal stuff, plus we work on a no win no fee basis, meaning that if we don’t win your case, you don’t pay any solicitors fees.
