Claiming compensation for a fall from a second storey window

If you have been injured as a result of falling out of a second storey window then this could result in you having a prolonged stay in hospital and even face life-changing consequences.  If the accident happened at work then it should be recorded in the accident book, so that if it comes to making a claim for compensation you will have it documented – for this reason it can be brought to the attention of your employer and can help your chances of seeking compensation. Falling from a second storey window is a very severe incident and as such it is not one you should take likely, so if you feel that you have suffered when the incident could have been avoided then a claim could be the best option for you.

Where might I be able to make a claim?

A fall from a second storey window can be extremely dangerous and if you suspect negligence has taken place you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Some examples of where a claim might be made include:

·         Claims if you have broken a bone

·         Claims if you have been left paralysed

·         Claims if you have been left brain damaged

·         Claims against a lack of safety equipment

·         Claims if you have lost a limb as a result of falling/broken sheet glass.

Who could I make a claim against?

If you have fallen out of a second storey window and have been left with serious injuries as a result, then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation if you can prove that negligence has occurred. An injury such as this will require a lot of medical attention and could result in you missing out on work, meaning you could be left out of pocket financially, so a claim could be your best option to recoup any losses you have incurred. There are a number of people who could be at fault in this instance, including the building owner for failing to apply correct health and safety measures. You shouldn’t have to suffer the consequences in silence and making a claim could be a huge benefit to you and it could help you with any financial issues you have incurred as a result.
