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.
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.
Carrs Solicitors act for clients throughout England and Wales and have the considerable experience in successfully recovering damages for clients who have sustained injuries caused by work at height. We can act on a no win - no fee basis so there are no up-front payments and only a capped contribution to our fees to be made from the damages won if the claim succeeds.
We offer free initial legal advice and expert solicitor representation based upon years of experience in successfully bringing falls from height compensation claims.
At Carrs Solicitors, you will always have a senior solicitor who will personally handle every aspect of your personal injury claim and who will always be available to answer your questions. We are ready to listen and to offer free impartial advice in strict confidence.
