Derbyshire worker suffers accident at work

A local Derbyshire construction worker has suffered an accident at work which resulted in severe injuries.

The accident involved the worker falling 6 metres to the ground from a roof that he was repairing panels on. The victim’s colleague attempted to help the victim however, the colleague was unable to help as he was stuck in a ‘man basket’ that did not have separate controls in order for him to manoeuvre it and help the victim. Therefore, the colleague had to climb down the boom of the machine to help the victim.

As a result of the of the accident, the worker sustained serious injuries to his head, hip and lungs.

An investigation into the accident found that there were not sufficient health and safety practices in place and the site lacked the necessary platforms or coverage on the roof to protect workers from falling.

If you have suffered an injury from an accident at work that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to make a No Win No Fee compensation claim. We act for a number of clients who have suffered similar injuries and it is important that you get independent, expert legal advice, preferably as soon as possible, from our specialist lawyers.

I would just like to add how friendly and helpful everyone was in connection with my case.  I would like to say a big thank you to all in bringing my case to a successful end.

There has been excellent communication throughout the entire claim process. I was kept unto date with all the information from Sainsburys and the outcome has been excellent. Thank you to all involved.
