The Law On Claims For A Fall From Height
All employers have a legal duty to take care for the safety of their workers.
And there are strict regulations covering a claim for a fall from a roof.
The Work at Height Regulations 2005 are intended to protect the safety of workers when working at any height above two metres.
It seemed clear to us that Matt’s employers were in breach of the regulations.
So we took on the claim against his employers.
We sent a detailed Letter of Claim to the insurers.
The insurers quickly admitted that the employers were responsible for the accident.
We then obtained detailed expert medical evidence about Matt’s injuries.
Detailed calculations were also prepared setting out details of Matt’s loss of earnings and other financial losses.
We then issued court proceedings on Matt’s behalf.
As the case was approaching a trial the insurers entered into negotiations with us.
Following those negotiations Matt accepted an of around £500000 in settlement of his claim.
