Vehicle Fall Claims

Vehicle Fall Claims

Whilst the Government has set specific targets for the reduction of work accidents involving falls from vehicles, this type of injury still accounts for a significant percentage of work related accidents and injuries.

If you have suffered an injury as the result of a fall from a vehicle, and the fall itself was the result of the negligence of a superior or fellow employee, it is highly likely you will be able to make a claim.

Am I Eligible to Claim Compensation?

There are a series of strict health and safety rules governing the use of vehicles at work. By not adhering to these rules, your employer may be liable. Health and safety rules regarding the use of vehicles in the workplace state that:

  • Work vehicles should have good visibility, and should also have external side mirrors, reversing alarms or other vision aids such as CCTV.
  • Vehicles should be provided with horns, lights, reflectors and all other necessary safety features.
  • Vehicles must be regularly serviced and repaired.
  • Work vehicles should have seats and seatbelts wherever possible.
  • Any surfaces on which people walk whilst on the vehicle should be slip resistant.
  • Drivers should be protected from injury, in the event of the vehicle overturning.

If you are unsure whether your employer violated health and safety legislation, contact the work accident solicitors at Farleys to discuss the details of your vehicle fall accident.
