Defective scaffold accident work injury claims

roof falls

As experienced personal injury lawyers, we know how difficult it can be in the aftermath of an accident at work. Many victims can be reluctant to make a compensation claim, due to the friction that they worry that this may cause with their employer. But it is your legal right, and you should not be treated differently for claiming, and we aim to make the process stress-free and worthwhile. In a recent successful case, we obtained thousands of pounds in damages to compensate our client for a defective scaffold accident that they were involved in at their workplace, and we may be able to help you too.

We take on all kinds of workplace accident claims for clients from all sorts of professions. So, whether you are a builder or a roofer, you could be eligible to claim compensation for an injury if your employer failed to sufficiently prevent workplace hazards.

Defective scaffold accident – a successful compensation claim

With its combination of physical work, heavy materials and heights, construction can be a dangerous profession as it is. As such, it can become even more hazardous if the employer is not adhering to workplace safety regulations.

One of our clients unfortunately fell prey to dangerous working conditions whilst at work in their construction job in a defective scaffold accident. It was found that management had failed to ensure that regulations were followed in the erection and maintenance of the scaffolding, causing our client to fall and sustain severe injuries.

In the end, the Defendant was held liable for breaching construction regulations and endangering our client, for whom we were able to recover thousands of pounds in compensation.

Making a workplace compensation claim

The defective scaffold accident claim detailed above shows how we can successfully hold employers accountable for breaches of workplace safety regulations. If an accident arises, and it can be proven that the employer failed to take sufficient safety precautions, the injured employee may be eligible to claim compensation.

To give you a better idea of what you can claim for, a workplace injury compensation pay-out could cover:

  • compensation for the pain, suffering, and loss of amenity caused;
  • money for lost earnings due to time off work;
  • medical expenses covering appointment costs, medication costs, and the cost of travel to and from appointments.

It is also important to note that we can make sure that you receive private medical treatment even before the conclusion of your case in some cases. We could then recover the costs from your employer’s insurer as part of your claim. You should not have to suffer further pain and inconvenience waiting for NHS treatment if your injury occurred through no fault of your own.

Claim with The Injury Lawyers

If you have been the victim of a defective scaffold accident, or have suffered any other workplace injury, you may be eligible to claim compensation. We understand that it can feel difficult to launch a claim against your employer, which is why we take all the stress off your hands, dealing with all the tricky details and potentially difficult conversations.

Your employer should have insurance for a reason, and you have every right to claim from it if you have been unfairly put at risk and have suffered the consequences. Contact us today for a free, no-obligation discussion about your potential injury claim.
