Carpenter seeking broken bones compensation

A carpentry company is facing a claim for personal injury compensation from a former employee as an accident at work left him with several broken bones.

According to the Ealing Gazette, Noel Doyle sustained fractures to his pelvis and ribs, as well as suffering internal bleeding, after falling ten metres to the ground while working on a building site in February 2009.

Mr Doyle also broke his elbow so severely that he is still unable to write more than two years after the incident and has now decided to pursue a damages settlement from John Reddington, a contractor established in 1996.

The 30-year-old told the news source that his career as a carpenter is over due to the damage caused to his elbow, as he has lost the sense of touch in his right hand and now has a metal plate holding the joint together.

"There's loads of stuff I can't do any more. I can't play golf, or snooker, or drive a manual car," he added.
