Work injury compensation claims
There can be many ways in which an employee can be injured in a roof accident which may mean they’re eligible to make a claim for compensation.
Examples of times when a legal case could be pursued may include:
- Falling through a roof on a construction site;
- Falling through a roof when accessing part of the employer’s premises;
- A collapsed roof falling in on you.
Workplace health and safety regulations are incredibly stringent. The regulations in place should mean that there are little to no circumstances when an employee can be injured in the workplace in this way. When it comes to construction sites, risk assessments should mean that no employee is put in danger. There should be safe access ways and equipment in use where falls could occur, like harnesses or scaffolding.
What we need to do is establish that there has been some form of negligence for you to be able to make a claim. As long as we can show that at least one workplace regulation has been broken, and that this contributed to your accident and injuries, you may have a case.
It may be that you’re injured in a roof accident as a visitor to a premises or perhaps when living in rented accommodation.
If you’re legitimately accessing somewhere and you fall through a collapsed roof or a roof collapses on you, you may have a valid case. If this happens in premises you’re renting, you should be able to pursue a claim against your landlord.
Where there has been a case of negligence, you could be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation. You can normally pursue the case and obtain compensation from insurance that’s in place. It’s there to claim from when it’s needed.
