According to the Racing Post, Kevin Parker fell eight feet from scaffolding while steam cleaning a stable owned by horse trainer Amanda Perrett and, as a result, suffered two fractured heels.
Due to this incident, Mr Parker has not been able to return to his previous jobs and needed surgery to repair the damage, the news source added.
Jim Cornelius - chief executive of the National Association of Stable Staff, which is the certified trade union for all such professionals and represents workers on several racing industry committees - revealed that Mr Parker also did not have to pay anything to obtain his damages sum.
"Kevin contacted us in January 2009 and we underwrote his claim for negligence and a breach of the Work at Height Regulations," he explained.
