Although most modern ladders are incredibly stable, this doesn’t meant that from time to time they can’t be potentially hazardous, especially if they are knocked or set up on an uneven surface. It’s also important to check that your ladder is kept in a good state of repair. If you are injured after falling from a ladder, then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation if you believe negligence led to this situation.  

What injuries could I receive from a fall from a ladder?

If you are the victim of a fall from a ladder there are a number of potentially serious injuries that you could be left with and as a result you could consider a compensation claim. Some of these injuries include:

  • Head and neck injuries sustained during a fall
  • Broken bones and fractured limbs
  • Cuts, abrasions and grazes
  • Potential death. 

Who could I make a claim against for a fall from a ladder?

If you have sustained an injury from a fall from a ladder then there are a number of people who you could consider making a compensation claim against. If your injury was caused in the workplace through either the negligence of another person or through the provision of unsafe equipment, then you could consider making a compensation claim against your manager.
