Falls from Height Compensation Claims

We handle claims ranging in severity from minor injury falls to catastrophic injury cases and have represented workers from a range of sectors but most frequently construction or logistics.  According to The Health and Safety Executive in 2018/19, 40 fatal injuries to workers were recorded due to falls from a height. 

 

Employer's Liability

The Work at Height Regulations (2005)  attempt to prevent death and injury by requiring duty holders to properly plan and organise work at height. The Regulations also require that  work should not be carried out at height where a fall would be liable to cause injury if it can be avoided with reasonable practicability, that the risks from unavoidable work at height are adequately assessed, that suitable equipment is provided and regularly inspected and maintained and that all staff working at height are given appropriate training and supervision.

The Work at Height Regulations represent a basic criminal law safety standard and injury caused either by falling or by a falling object in circumstances where they have not been complied with can give rise to a claim for  compensation on the basis of the duty holder's negligence.
