The group were injured as they worked as part of a team tasked with building a new atrium at the Art and Design Academy of Liverpool John Moores University - an institution with more than 24,000 students - in September 2007.
An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) revealed that the workers were pumping concrete onto the third floor of the structure when the scaffolding supporting them suddenly fell through.
Consequently, they sustained injuries such as broken bones and cement burns to their eyes and skin and, after both the main contractor and subcontractor on the project were prosecuted for safety failings, they may now decided to pursue damages.
Susan Ritchie, inspector at the HSE, commented: "This incident resulted in seven men falling roughly ten metres onto wet concrete which contained various bits of metal and wood."
