Workplace Accident Lawyers Instructed To Support Labourer’s Loved Ones Through Hearing
The family of a Scarborough dad-of-one found dead under a lift hope an upcoming inquest will provide them with “vital” answers regarding his death.
Thirty-three-year-old found fatally injured
Sandy Noble, a labourer, was undertaking repairs at Royal Oldham Hospital when he was found fatally injured. At the time, the 33-year-old was employed by DB Lifts.
Following Sandy’s death, in February 2021, his loved ones including partner Carley Holden, 35, and his mum Carol Biggins, 56, instructed expert workplace accident lawyers at Irwin Mitchell to help establish answers and support them through an inquest process. The legal team is also working to help secure the future of Sandy and Carley’s 11-year-old son.
Expert Opinion“Sandy’s death continues to have a profound effect on his loved ones who understandably remain devastated.
“Their grief is made all the worse as they still have a number of questions and concerns over the events leading up to Sandy’s death.
“While nothing will ever make up for their loss, we’re determined to support Sandy’s family and help them obtain the vital answers they deserve. The inquest is a major milestone in being able to do so.
“If, during the course of the inquest, any issues are identified, it’s vital that lessons are learned to improve health and safety.” Claire Newstead, Workplace Accident lawyer
Prior to his death, Sandy had been working as a labourer for two years. The incident is being investigated by the Health and Safety Executive.
Carley said: “Sandy was the best dad to our son, who adored him. He was loved by everyone and his death has left a huge hole in our family.
“To this day, I still struggle to accept I’ll never see or speak to Sandy again. Our lives haven’t been the same since we lost him. It’s horrible to think that our son now has to grow up without his dad.
“While I know nothing will ever bring Sandy back, I hope the inquest, however difficult it may be, will provide us with answers so we can honour Sandy’s memory.”
Hearing set to take place
An inquest into Sandy’s death is scheduled take place at Rochdale Coroner’s Court, starting on 8 January and due to last for five days.
