We secured a six figure sum for a construction worker who was seriously injured when he fell from scaffolding.
Our client was working on a new housing development in Stafford when the accident happened, causing extensive damage to his lower leg. His injuries severely limited his ability to keep working in the construction trade and left him with problems that will persist through his life.
The scaffold had not been put up properly and a vital part had not been attached securely, meaning the accident was only a matter of time. However, before coming to us, the client had already been through two other firms who had been unable to help him with his case.
The compensation we were able to secure will enable him to pay for rehabilitation and therapy to help his ongoing recovery.
Stephen Nye, a Partner in our Birmingham office, represented the client. He says: "This was a very serious incident which was totally avoidable. Proper risk assessments and routine checks after the scaffolding has been put up would have discovered the faults that led to the fall. We’re pleased to have been able to pick this case up successfully obtain a settlement for our client, who will have some permanent problems as a result of his injuries.”
If you have suffered an injury as a result of an accident on a construction site, our accident at work solicitors could help you to claim compensation. See our Construction Accident Compensation page for more information.
