Our client was injured when working as a maintenance fitter. He was standing on stepladders removing a motor from a machine when he fell sustaining a fractured wrist. A claim was pursued against his employers who admitted liability for the claimant to injury on the basis that the ladders being used were defective.
The claim was settled prior to court proceedings and our client received £11,000 in compensation.
"The claimant here suffered a nasty fall which affected him for quite some time. It is important that firms have suitable work equipment that is well maintained to prevent accidents like this one happening."
