Ladder Accident Claims
Injured Whilst Using A Ladder At Work?
Over £90 million compensation recovered for our UK clients – Russell Worth Solicitors
Ladders are an important way of helping you do your job, but sadly they are also involved in many hundreds of accidents each year, causing injury and loss and even death.
Employers have a duty to ensure that using a ladder at work is safe – they should assess the risk, draw up a safe plan, and supervise their use. Ladders are safe if the correct well maintained ladder is used, and proper training is made available, but each year we handle many ladder accident claims.
If you have been injured in a ladder fall at work and want to find out more about making a ladder accident claim, please call us now on 0800 028 2060 or complete an online Ladder Accident Claim Assessment and let us help you.
“Brilliant. Contacted solicitor following a fall at work. Someone visited me at home went through paperwork. Explained everything and what would happen. You are given your own account manager who you can liaise with for updates etc. They worked very hard to get the final outcome and paid my money directly into my account. Would recommend to anyone.”
Types Of Ladder Accident Claims
Each year we still see many injuries arising from the use of ladders or step ladders, such as:
- Using the wrong type of ladder
- Using a ladder instead of a platform or scaffolding
- Using a ladder which is too small, causing over reaching
- Using a ladder placed at the wrong angle
- Using a ladder with insufficient or no support
- Using a ladder which hasn’t been properly checked for safety
- Using a ladder without proper training or regular refresher training
- Using a ladder which is not properly secured at the top or bottom
- Using a ladder without proper safety equipment
