Our Serious Injury team secured a 6-figure compensation package for a construction who suffered serious injuries when the scaffolding collapsed beneath him.
Our client was working as a subcontractor on a construction site in Yorkshire when the mobile floor that he was working from collapsed beneath him. He fell from a considerable height and was seriously injured.
He fractured his vertebrae, collarbone, and arm. The nerves around his arm and hand were damaged, which would have a serious impact on his daily life.
After the accident, he has been unable to return to the same line of work and has been forced to look for alternative career options.
Though the construction company refused to admit responsibility for the collapse of the mobile floor, we were able to work with their insurance company to secure rehabilitative therapy for our client, as well as compensation.
The rehabilitative support we helped our client access included physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and psychotherapy. We also enabled him to get equipment to help with daily tasks, particularly in the kitchen.
Our client received a 6-figure compensation sum. He was represented by specialist Serious Injury solicitor Louise Morgan.
Louise said of the case: “We’re pleased we’ve been able to help our client in his recovery by supporting him with rehabilitation. The compensation settlement will provide him with security for the future after these life-changing injuries.
