Working at height can be extremely dangerous and a task that should be kept short and sweet, preferably under 30 minutes. While construction workers account for the largest proportion of fatal fall injuries, many more are at risk – electricians, roofers, window cleaners, gardeners and factory workers – they all at some point step onto a pair of ladders.
Claims for falls from unsecured ladders are usually made when the injury has occurred because of employer negligence. A fall that causes a significant injury to the spine or head can sadly be fatal, while some victims may be left with injuries that cause chronic pain or force them to retire from the job they love.
