Falls From Height

If you have had a fall from a height due to the negligence of somebody else then you may be entitled to claim compensation. A fall from a height could happen in a public place such as a shopping centre or in work from falling off a ladder for example.

The Owner of a Property has a Duty of Care to Minimise Risk of a Fall from Height Accident

If your fall from height took place on another person’s property and they acted negligently then they will be liable to pay you compensation as they have a duty of care to ensure your safety whilst on their premises.

However the extent of their duty of care will depend on the circumstances as the owner’s legal responsibilities may change depending on the nature of the potential risk of a fall from height and if it is an obvious risk.

If you have a fall from height at work then your employer may be liable if they failed to follow health and safety guidelines.
