No Win No Fee Claims for Roofers injured at Work

 

Duncan Lewis is a leading firm of personal injury and Legal Aid solicitors and can advise on how to make a no win no fee personal injury claim for roofers injured at work if an employer or other party is liable for the accident.

 

Accidents and injuries Roofers injured at Work can claim for

 

Construction is one of the riskiest professions and roofers face the risk of accidents and injury as part of their job. Working at height, fragile buildings and the physical toll of the job can all result in accident or injury.

 

Roofers injured at work as a result of their employer not properly assessing risks – or because of faulty equipment like safety harnesses or scaffolding – can claim for injuries such as:

 

  • Amputation
  • Brain injury
  • Concussion
  • Crush injuries
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Fractures
  • Head injury
  • Muscle damage
  • Neck and shoulder injury
  • Spinal and back injuries.

 

How long do Roofers injured at Work have to make a claim?

 

Claims for accidents and injury at work compensation fall under the area of law known as personal injury.

 

Personal injury claimants usually have three years from the date of the injury to make a claim for accident and injury at work compensation.

 

Claims can sometimes be made outside the three-year limitation period, however.

 

Because of the limitation period for personal injury claims, it is important to seek legal advice from Duncan Lewis personal injury solicitors as soon as possible if you are a roofer and have been injured in a work accident.

 

Family members can call Duncan Lewis for advice on making a claim if a loved one working as a roofer has been injured and is still recovering in hospital.

 

How much compensation can roofers injured at work claim?

 

Compensation for Roofers injured at Work includes:

 

  • General Damages for pain, suffering and loss of amenity
    The exact amount will be assessed according to the extent of injury, estimated recovery time and rehabilitation needed – and whether further medical treatment or even lifelong care is needed.
  • Special Damages to cover medical fees and out-of-pocket expenses
    Expenses might include physiotherapy, loss of earnings, travel expenses to hospital or damage to personal items. In more serious cases, ongoing care, loss of future salary and pension or adaptations to your home would be included.

 

Who pays compensation to roofers injured at work?

 

Employers have a legal duty to ensure safe working practices – and should carry out regular health and safety checks to make sure work premises or sites are properly managed and maintained, equipment is fit for purpose – and staff are properly trained and supervised.

 

Employees must also follow good working practices and report any lapses in health and safety to employers or line managers.

 

However, it is your employer’s insurer who will settle any claim for accident or injury at work as a roofer – or the insurer of whoever is liable for the injury.

 

Will I have to go to court to claim compensation?

 

Your Duncan Lewis personal injury solicitor will keep you fully informed at all stages of the case.

 

Most claims for roofers injured at work are settled out-of-court – Duncan Lewis personal injury lawyers negotiate hard to get the best settlement for you.

 

But if a court hearing is necessary, Duncan Lewis instructs leading barristers who specialise in personal injury and construction industry claims, to make sure you have the best legal representation possible.
