Broken bones sustained during an accident at work could result in a man pursuing a claim for personal injury compensation.
The unnamed 36-year-old suffered a fractured pelvis when he fell from a height of around three metres from an unguarded platform outside a poultry house at premises owned by Llynclys Farm in Market Drayton, Shropshire.
During this accident, which took place in July 2009, the agency worker was walking on a temporary surface made from hen cages when he tripped over and broke his pelvis, as well as suffering a punctured lung.
An investigation conducted by the Health and Safety Executive established that the firm had failed to take adequate health and safety precautions at the site and Llynclys Farm subsequently admitted breaking the Work at Height Regulations 2005.
This comes after Mark Cain fell two metres and broke his back while working for Hawarden Roofing Supplies & Contractors.
