Construction Accident at Work victim claims compensation
We were instructed by our client to pursue a personal injury claim
on his behalf following an accident at work
Our client was working on a building site
alongside his colleague. As he ascended the stairs to the 1st floor of a new build house via a ladder, and proceeded to walk across the 1st floor, the floor suddenly gave way and he fell through the floor
to the ground floor together with the debris.
Our client sustained a laceration to his thigh
, which required sutures and also resulted in him experiencing strange sensations in his leg
, together with scarring.
We helped our client issue a personal injury claim
under the Health and Safety at work regulations, workplace regulations and working at height regulations
, as all employers have a duty of care to keep their employees safe at all times and provide a safe environment to work in.Alison Mills, Personal Injury Claims Executive
said: "Accidents at work can be extremely serious especially those in the construction sector. Falls from height remain the most common and can be the most serious."
Our client received nearly £4,000 in compensation
for his injuries and losses sustained during his accident at work.
