Falling from height can be a real life-changing experience. The few seconds for which a person falls can feel like a lifetime and can have far-reaching consequences both physically and mentally. The physical injuries resulting from falls from height can be really serious ones. Falling from height accidents can cause injuries like fractures, broken bones, injuries to the back and head. Height from fall can even cause death depending on the angle of body impact and height of fall.
There may be many reasons for falling from height depending on industry types:
If your employer fails to provide safety equipment and a comparatively safer environment, then you can compensation claim for falling from a height.
Aside from medical attention needed after getting seriously injured, there is other stuff you should do after falling from a height, which will help in your compensation claim.
You can get compensation for falling from height when you can prove the fault or mistake of somebody else. If it’s your own mistake, then you are not liable to file and get a claim. The claim must be filed within three years of an accident.
You should consult an expert personal injury solicitor as it can help you collect the necessary evidence, the procedure of filing, and estimating the compensation after assessing your injury. Personal injury solicitors who specialize in accidents at work know exactly what your rights are to claim the injury compensation and most are experienced in managing all types of workplace accidents. The personal injury lawyer will also check your eligibility and also help in negotiations in case of an out of court settlement. We offer you a No Win No Fee agreement which means you pay us only if you win and the fees will be charged from the compensation amount only.
The amount of compensation is dependent on various factors like physical injuries, their psychological impact on you. There can be special damages that can be claimed for loss of earning or other financial losses due to on-going and future rehabilitation and medical treatments.
