Fallen through a skylight at work? Claiming compensation

workplace accidents

If you’ve fallen through a skylight during the course of your employment, you may be able to make a claim for workers’ personal injury compensation.

Health and safety at work regulations are numerous and they’re many. There can be a number of regulations that apply for employees working at height, and these should ensure that an accident never occurs.

However, as we know from many years of representing injured workers, the law isn’t always followed. When that happens, people are injured, and we can help them.

Can you claim if you’ve fallen through a skylight?

You can be eligible to claim compensation if you’re injured having fallen through a skylight at work. In these kinds of scenarios, it seems likely that the law hasn’t been followed, as employees should never be exposed to such a danger.

There are plenty of ways this kind of accident can be avoided, such as:

  • Protective edging around the skylight or in the area of the skylight;
  • Warning signs and instructions;
  • Training and awareness;
  • Personal protective equipment (like harnesses) to prevent a fall where someone is required to work around an unguarded skylight.

Ultimately, these kinds of dangers should be identified and therefore easily prevented through the use of appropriate risk assessments. It’s that simple.

Serious injuries

We can tell you from experience that many victims who have fallen through a skylight at work have suffered serious and multiple injuries.

Fractures and serious head injuries can be common, leaving victims with long-term, injuries and long-term treatment and rehabilitation. This can also lead to substantial lost earnings claims as well, and these are factors we account for when it comes to valuing a claim for personal injury compensation.

The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) will typically investigate fall from height incidents and can issue substantial fines for breaches of legislation. Fatal injuries can easily occur, which is why these incidents are taken so seriously.

Our Serious Injury Claims Team are available to fight for the rights of anyone who suffers catastrophic injury from employer negligence.
