Sheffield Man Receives Compensation Following Fall Through Roof At Work

Irwin Mitchell has assisted Simon from Sheffield to obtain £60,000 in compensation after he was injured at work falling through a false ceiling.

Simon was working for a plumbing company, subcontracting in supermarkets and was injured when he feel through a false ceiling and broke his foot.

Simon suffered a long recovery period and the chronic pain and financial stress of being out of work due to his injury led to quite severe depression.

Lisa Fairclough, of Irwin Mitchell Serious Injury Team, assisted Simon to obtain £60,000 in compensation for his injuries and lost earnings, Lisa said: "The work that Simon was doing at the time was very much on an ad hoc basis and there was very little information conveyed to workers out and about on site and even less training for new workers.

"Following an admission of liability we were able to help Simon get compensation for the injuries he suffered to help him get back on the right track."
