Fall Injury Claims

'Slips, trips and falls' has become a common phrase associated with personal injury claims. However, it doesn't do justice to the broad range of different falls from height that occur in public places throughout the UK, or to the severity of injuries they can cause.

You could be entitled to compensation if you have suffered an injury due to a fall from height in any of the following circumstances:

  • On public or commercial premises where you had a legal right to be
  • In the workplace, where the risks of working at height should be properly assessed
  • Anywhere you believe guardrails should have been fitted, but where they failed or were missing

Falls from height don't only occur because the victim wasn't paying attention, they are often caused because of somebody else’s negligence.

Edges that are not clearly marked, and are not protected by guardrails, pose a significant risk that should be protected against. Similarly, exposed edges can be more dangerous in certain weather conditions, such as strong winds, or if rain has made the surface slippery.

If you have suffered a personal injury due to a fall - even from a low height, or on a flat surface - you may be able to bring a compensation claim. Talk to our expert personal injury team and we will advise you if you could make a fall injury claim.
