Pages On: Falls from Heights

Workplaces hold a duty of care to their staff to prevent accidents. Falls from heights are some of the most dangerous and preventable forms of accident at work. If your employer has failed in their duty of care to you, and you have suffered a fall from a height, it may be lucky if you walk away with your life. They are the top cause of fatal injury at work, and are a blight in construction and agriculture industries. If you or a loved one has suffered a workplace injury and are not at fault, you may be entitled to claim personal injury compensation for the employer negligence.

I am very happy with the service that I got from Personal Injury Claims Glasgow. My Insurer referred me to them when I had an accident, as I had no legal cover with my car insurance. I was kept informed at all times, even though the claim took some time to complete due to no fault of theirs. They persevered, and my son got compensated for his injuries when we had a crash that wasn't my fault, and he was a passenger. They were very professional and covered all basis. I will recommend the firm to anyone needing representation in this situation.
