Claiming compensation for falling from a platform

You could be entitled to claim compensation for incidents involving falling from a platform in the workplace if the event was preventable. Health and Safety regulations in respect of working at height are incredibly strict, as they are across the workplace generally. However, given the obvious increased risks of working at height, there are specific regulations to manage risk assessments and make sure that employers take appropriate steps to protect employees if they could be at risk of a fall.

If you have been involved in an incident caused by falling from a platform because your employer has been negligent in the duty of care that they have for you, that is when you could be eligible to claim compensation. If we believe that you have a legitimate case to make, we should be able to represent you for a case on a No Win, No Fee basis, which means that we can write off our legal fees if the claim does not succeed, subject to the agreed terms and conditions in place.

A recent HSE prosecution

There was a recent prosecution from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) that involved a worker falling from a platform. The HSE publication confirmed that a fine of £234,000 had been issued after an employee suffered injuries due to falling from a 10-foot-high platform that collapsed. Unfortunately, the injuries suffered were serious to both legs, and the employee was left with long-term problems as a result of what happened.

In its publication, the HSE said that the company in question failed to take appropriate steps to ensure that the employee was safely working at height. The HSE said that the incident was completely preventable, which is why a fine of £234,000 was issued in addition to a cost order in excess of £12,300 being issued.
