Compensation for Broken Ankle at Work

Injury at work

One of our clients recovered £35,000 in an out of court settlement following an accident at work resulting in a broken ankle.

He had been painting a barn which had recently been converted into houses and was using an A Frame aluminium ladder (site ladder) to stand on whilst painting. The frame of the ladder seemed to move underneath him and he fell to the ground later realising the ladder had snapped, resulting in a broken ankle.

His injury meant he had to attend hospital, was absent from work and 2 years later still has a slight limp. He was unable to continue with his hobbies of weight training and gardening as a result of his injuries.
