Irwin Mitchell recently assisted a man to claim compensation after he fell on stones from a broken wall.
The client was working as a communications worker at the time of the incident. The wall that the stones had come from was at his place of work. His employers knew that the wall was in a state of disrepair and that stones had fallen onto the ground but did nothing to clear the hazard away. Our client tripped on stones and sustained a back injury.
Lawyers at Irwin Mitchell represented the man in a claim against his employer and were able to secure an out of court settlement in the sum of £1200.
If you or a loved one has suffered a back injury while at work and it wasn't your fault, our specialist accident at work claims team could help you to claim compensation. Read our Back Injury at Work Compensation page for more information.
