Failure by employer to abide by health and safety regulations cause of accident
Mr W. was injured when he fell from a ladder whilst working as a roofer.
No-one there to foot the ladder
He had previously been employed by the defender but as a result of the recession his previous contract of employment was terminated and he was working as a sub-contractor at the time of his accident.
Whilst employed by the defender he was provided with an apprentice to foot his ladder.
When his employment status changed he no longer had anyone to foot his ladder.
Had someone been footing his ladder he would not have been injured.
Solicitors proved employer was responsible for accident
We were successful in arguing that the defender was liable in terms of both the Work at Height Regulations and also the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007.
He was awarded damages of £185,000.
