A joiner from Louth has successfully won damages after suffering broken bones when a scaffolding he was working on was hit by a bus causing him to fall more than four metres.
Mario Mazzarella, who is self-employed, was working on the structure built for him by Panther Scaffolding at the Helal Restaurant on Mercer Row on November 9th 2009.
The scaffold had been built onto the road and a bus crashed into it. None of the passengers were harmed.
Andrew Mark Judge of Panther Scaffolding was prosecuted by the Health and Safety Executive for failing to ensure the scaffolding was constructed safely and he has been ordered to pay £15,000 in fines and £3,739 in costs by Skegness Magistrates' Court.
It was recently reported that Charles Howie may seek personal injury compensation as a result of suffering broken bones and a punctured lung after falling off scaffolding at a fish processing factory in Fraserburgh last year.
