If you are unfortunate enough to sustain injury as a result of a fall from height at work, you may be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation. You may also be able to make a compensation claim if you are the relative of a person who has died as a result of a fall from height at work.
As with all personal injury compensation claims, you would need to prove that your injury was caused as a result of the negligence of another party (in this case your employer or the main contractors on site). Your appointed solicitor will assist you in compiling your evidence and presenting it to your employer's liability insurers.
You should ensure that you report your accident to your employers directly and immediately and record your accident in the accident book at work. You should also take the names and addresses of anyone who witnessed your accident.
Your employer is also obliged to report any accidents to the HSE which result in serious injuries such as broken bones or any injury leaving you unable to work for more than 3 days.
