The unnamed employee suffered broken bones when he fell seven metres from the roof of a house he was working on in Leeds and subsequently needed to stay in hospital for a period of 15 days.
As a result of the this incident, the 33-year-old's remaining working life will be affected by the physical constraints caused by the impact of his fall, meaning that he may be eligible for personal injury damages.
The man was injured as he slipped from a ladder he planned to use as his platform upon which to install a new flue liner in the Yorkshire property.
Fluetech UK, his employer, has admitted breaching three health and safety regulations in a case at Leeds Magistrates' Court.
Statistics from the Health and Safety Executive show that 12 people passed away after falling from height in 2008-09.
