Get your compensation with our Work Injury Solicitors in Manchester

Our Work Injury Solicitors are able to support you if you have suffered because of negligence. Also, there is no financial risk to you as our work injury claims are funded by a No Win, No Fee agreement.

If you have been injured in an accident at work involving a fall from a ladder or height, you may be able to make a claim.

Whenever you are using a ladder at work, the Work at Height Regulations applies. This means that your employer/s have a legal duty to make sure that all work at height is properly planned.

Employers must also ensure that those working at height are either competent or supervised; that the risks of working on fragile surfaces (such as faulty roofs) are properly controlled; and that all items of equipment (such as ladders and harnesses) are properly inspected and maintained.

Moreover, employers should seek to avoid work at height for their employees if possible, and look for safer alternatives.

No matter where you work, your employer has a duty of care to provide a safe workplace and to ensure the potential for accidents is low. If you have suffered from an accident at work, you may be eligible to claim compensation.

Aside from personal injury, suffering from an accident at work can also mean the stresses of financial losses, such as loss of earnings due to you not being able to work.

    What types of Fall Injuries can I claim for?

    Workplace ladders are obviously taller than domestic ladders meaning the risk of you suffering an injury is much higher.

    When instructing you to work at height, your employer is under a duty to ensure that the ladder and any safety equipment are fit for purpose.

    Ladders and stepladders, as well as scaffolding equipment, are tools that are frequently used when working at height. Unfortunately, these are often misused or used incorrectly.

    Statistically, the great majority of ladder accidents at work result from using ladders that are broken, incorrectly maintained, or are in a state of disrepair.

    Falls from a ladder can, and do, result in serious injuries.

    The most common work-related accidents are:

    • Broken bones
    • Internal organ injuries
    • Head injuries
    • Back injuries
    • Leg & Knee injuries
    • Arm & Shoulder Injuries

    What is the Working at Height Regulations for Workplace Accidents?

    The Working at Height Regulations exists to protect you and your colleagues who regularly work on ladders, scaffolding, or who are otherwise at risk of falling from height while at work.

    The regulations require, among other things, that employees who are expected to work at height are properly trained in the use of ladders and all appropriate safety equipment.

    Employers are legally bound to ensure that employees are trained. The employees also need to make sure that the ladder is fit for purpose – including ensuring that the ladder is not damaged, bent or warped, and that the ladder’s feet are intact.

    Ladder accidents resulting in falls can still occur even if the ladder is in good condition because you can slip or skid. So, employers are also legally bound to ensure that the environment in which ladders are to be used are kept free of spills or debris which may result in a ladder falling.

    “I was inundated by phone calls from dodgy companies telling me to put a claim in, but a colleague recommended Treadstone Law. I gave them a call and was astonished that, nine months later, I got a cheque for £4,700. Brilliant result!”

    Mr S / Wythenshawe

    “My son was injured at a holiday club. Treadstone Law came out to see me the same day I contacted them, and the solicitor who showed a real interest in the case. He explained it all well and was really nice to my son who was a bit frightened as he thought he was in trouble . We went to the scene of the accident and he did a full report taking loads of photos . This was really important as the play scheme moved all the incriminating evidence the next day.”

    Miss C / Cheshire

    “I had a simple road traffic accident and I was astonished when my solicitor called me and said she has settled my case for £13,000. I was very happy with the customer service that I received from Treadstone Law. They were always happy to help me with any questions I had and made me feel so welcome when I visited their offices. I will recommend my friends and family to use them if they require legal services.”

    Mrs O / Manchester

    “I was treated as a real human being by Treadstone Law. I was asked how I was, and the Solicitor did more than I had come in for, as I asked his advice about several other things. He answered all my questions and advised me what I should do, or what he would do if it were him. He made up for a lack of sensitivity shown by another solicitor’s firm, who treated me like a cash cow, were mercenary and lacked empathy. Unfortunately, I still have to deal with these solicitors, but not for long hopefully. Thank you again, and I will recommend you. Treadstone Law have restored my faith in solicitors!”

    Mrs D / Manchester

    “I was very impressed with the service I received, from the start of my claim to completion.”

    Mr S / Bolton
