The Health and Safety Executive indicates that, in some industries, falling from height is the third highest cause of fatal injury and in other cases, resulted in 80 major injuries and a further 230 minor injuries. Falling injuries can be sustained as a result of both falling from a height and falling objects.
Falling accidents and injuries caused by falling objects, or falling from a height in the workplace can have life-changing implications for victims and their families. The level of injury sustained can have long-term implications which include financial loss, loss of earnings, prolonged ill health, disability or even death. Individuals may also suffer psychological problems from the stress, concern and angst caused. If the injury was caused by employer liability, you may be entitled to claim compensation.
