Claiming compensation for injuries caused by a falling ladder

Regardless of whether you work in an industry which uses ladders or you are simply in contact with them in your daily life, being struck or injured by a falling ladder can be very serious and could result in you needing hospital treatment.

Because of the severity that is involved, it is important that the correct health and safety measures are in place to prevent this can of thing from happening, but if you feel this has not been the case then you shouldn’t have to suffer the consequences alone.

What instances might I look to make a claim?

If you have been left with injuries as a result of a falling ladder then you could be entitled to seek compensation. There are several instances where you may look to claim, including:

·         Claims against a lack of safety equipment

·         Claims if you have been left brain damaged

·         Claims if you have been left paralysed

·         Claims if you have been hit by falling debris

Who could I make a claim against?

In general, if you have been left with an injury as a result of a falling ladder you would normally expect it to happen in the workplace. In this case you would either make a claim against the company or the manager for failing to uphold safety regulations, but if you are a member of the public and it has happened in private then you may make a claim against the manufacturer. An incident of this nature is very serious and as such you could receive a substantial figure if your claim is successful, so if you can prove that your injury has been caused as a result of someone else’s negligence then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence.
