One of our clients, Mr O was injured as a result of a fall at work, and he decided to contact one of our injury solicitors in Saxmundham to get their help in making a claim for compensation against his employer.
Mr O was working on scaffolding that had been erected by some of his colleagues. Unfortunately, the people that had erected the scaffolding made an error when doing so and as a result the scaffolding frame collapsed underneath Mr O’s weight the first time he went up it.
Mr O fell over 25 feet and landed on his back. Consequently, he was seriously injured, suffering a fracture to the base of his spine and several broken ribs. He spent several weeks in hospital and had to wear a back brace for a significant period of time following his discharge.
Mr O was aware that an accident at work, which was not his fault, might entitle him to make a claim against his employer, but he was not sure how best to proceed with the claim, which is why he approached one of our injury solicitors in Saxmundham.
Our injury solicitor in Saxmundham was able to establish that the people who had erected the scaffolding originally had been instructed to do so by the employer, even though the employer was fully aware that they were not qualified to do so.
By allowing individuals who did not really know what they were doing to erect scaffolding that they knew someone else would be using, the employer acted irresponsibly and without any due care to Mr O’s health or safety.
Mr O therefore made a claim against them for negligence and Mr O won his claim for compensation.
Not only did Mr O receive financial compensation for his injuries, which took into account the pain and suffering he had experienced as well as the long term effect his injuries would have on his health and lifestyle, but also special damages and loss of earnings.
Mr O was unable to return to work and had to retire on medical grounds. This had a huge impact on his own personal financial forecast and pension arrangements, which had to be taken into account when the independent body decided on the level of compensation he should receive.
