Alister McNeilly's right hip ball joint was severed from his thigh bone when he fell a distance of around five metres from the edge of a flat roof of a home in Stathdon, Aberdeenshire, while he was fixing a leak on the surface in November 2010.
The 26-year-old was working on this job with a colleague when he accidentally stepped off the edge of the roof, leading to his fall.
However, the Health and Safety Executive subsequently found that his boss Brian George Mackie - who traded as Donside Slating - had failed to put guardrails on the scaffolding being used by these employees.
After Mr Mackie admitted breaking the Work at Height Regulations 2005, Mr McNeilly could now decide to pursue a claim for compensation fro his ordeal, which left him needing to take around four months off work
