Several broken bones sustained during an accident at work may lead to a scaffolder pursuing a claim for personal injury compensation.
Gary Hampton suffered a shattered thigh bone, broken wrists, fractures to his back and bruised lungs in an incident that saw him fall a distance of around seven metres through a roof while he worked for the Fred Lewis Scaffold Company.
At the time of this accident in April 2010, Mr Lewis was installing scaffolding at a factory in Stoke-on-Trent and an investigation conducted by the Health and Safety Executive established that he had not been given proper training on working at height safely.
As a result of his injuries, the 28-year-old will never be able to conduct manual work again.
Recently, Christopher Carson sustained multiple fractures to his back and shoulder when he fell from a height of around 6.5 metres while working for Robert AS Crockett and Partners in Dundee.
