Ladder Falls at Work

Working at height is obviously an extremely dangerous task. Unsurprisingly, the use of ladders can result in falls and subsequent injury. Mercury Legal Solicitors deal with a range of accidents resulting from improper use of ladders such as slipping down walls, unsecured ladders and over reaching.

If correct procedures are not adhered to then serious injury can be sustained. Anything from spinal to head injuries can occur but tragically the result of this is sometimes death.

Your employers will be aware that they should avoid asking you to work from height unless absolutely necessary. If the tasks require you to work from a ladder, equipment and other measures should be taken to eliminate the risk of falling. Your employers will also know about their duty of care to ensure proper training has been given on how to work from height safely.

If you have suffered such an injury at work then get in touch with Mercury Legal about making a claim. We specialise in ladder falls and pride ourselves on our level of customer service and integrity. No matter how trivial you think your case is, we are here to help.

As with all Mercury Legal compensation claims, we will pursue your claim at no upfront cost to you and you will not have to pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful through no fault of your own.
