Falling object claims arise from a variety of different scenarios and in my different environments. Many happen as a result of activity in the workplace, although this type of accident can commonly occur in other environments as well.

Types of Falling object Accidents

Some of the most common falling object accident types include:

  • Luggage falling from a holdall
  • Products falling from shelves in a warehouse
  • Unstable signs falling down
  • Guttering falling 
  • Light fixtures becoming loose
  • Falling equipment e.g. tools
  • Falling debris like concrete, glass or bricks

No matter how you were injured, if you were injured as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault then you may very well be able to claim compensation. 

Employer Responsibility

Some sectors are more at risk than others of an accident in the workplace happening. For example, construction, building and factory environments are all industries which pose great risk for this type of accident happening. Still, no matter your job role, your employer should take any and all necessary steps to ensure your safety on the job. This includes ensuring that any and all shelves are safe to place items on, as well as ensuring that the general infrastructure of the building is safe and secure. Similarly, all staff should receive training so that they know how to reduce the risk of an object falling due to improper placement. Personal protective equipment like hardhats should also be provided where necessary. 

Compensation will be calculated on an individual basis by assessing the severity of your injuries, the pain and suffering they have caused you, as well as the impact that they have had upon your life. To see how much compensation you might be owed for your injuries, visit our compensation calculator.

Compensation will also take into account any financial losses that have occurred due to your injuries. For example, if you have been unable to work which has caused a loss of income, then this could be covered through compensation. The best way to determine how much compensation you are likely to be owed is to speak directly with a personal injury solicitor.
