How we work
Ladder accidents can occur in a variety of workplace settings. Whether you are working on-site, in a warehouse or completing a job off-site, such as roofing or window cleaning, your employer has a duty of care to ensure your safety. However, ladder falls and related incidents often take place when employers are in a rush to complete jobs.
Employers may skip over necessary training, fail to deploy a suitable number of workers to conduct the tasks required or decide to use a ladder for a job to avoid the cost of scaffolding.
Our solicitors have a great deal of experience in handling claims involving:
- Defective ladders
- Improperly inspected and maintained ladders
- Using a ladder where scaffolding should have been used
- Using a ladder on uneven ground
- Lack of training for employees on how to use ladders
- Improper use of equipment while using a ladder
- Falls from ladders
- Incorrect size or type of ladder used
- Slippery ladder rungs
- Improper assessment of the work area
- Objects falling while using a ladder
- Lack of proper handhold on ladders
No matter how your injury was sustained, we will work tirelessly to ensure we can secure the highest possible compensation amount following this incident. Any compensation secured will help to cover lost earnings for time you may have required off work, costly medical bills and any other costs incurred as a result of your injury.
Your employer’s duty of care
Employers have a legal duty to ensure that working environments are safe and free from hazards that could put the health and wellbeing of staff at risk. Risk assessments should be carried out regularly to identify any areas where changes should be made.
In order to maintain workplace safety, employers should carry out the following tasks:
- Adequate health and safety training
- Providing safe and undamaged equipment
- Using safety signs where hazards have been detected
When employers fail to fulfil these legal obligations, accidents can occur, which can lead to the individual being entitled to compensation.
