Accident at work - metal sheet falls from roof, causes severe shoulder injury
Mr S, a former client following a motorcycle accident, returned to Digby Brown Solicitors after suffering an injury to his shoulder in an accident at work.
Accident at work on construction site
Mr S was a self-employed, sub-contracted specialist welder.
He was welding inside at a construction site when a large and heavy metal sheet which was suspended above him fell from the roof landing on his shoulder.
Work Health and Safety breach
It had not been secured in place properly and was left hanging by one clamp.
Accident at work injuries
He sustained a fracture to his left clavicle and also nerve damage. He has never been able to return to welding and instead had to take up a position teaching welding at Dundee College before finding alternative employment in Australia
Accident at work claim
Despite liability being denied throughout by the people who arranged for the metal sheet to be erected, Digby Brown continued to make our client's case and managed to secure Mr S £23,500 in compensation.
