Unsafe door strikes man in face

Man looking out to sea

Our client was employed by a third party as a removal man when his accident at work happened. 

How did the accident at work happen?

He was working at a School, owned by the defenders, who were moving buildings and so documents were being transferred across to the new school building. 

The client was moving boxes into the back of a truck and so opened a fire escape door to allow access to the truck. 

The door was not properly secured and it fell off its hinges and struck the client on his face, causing injury to his teeth

After the accident occurred, the defender’s janitor told the client that he was aware that the door had been broken but, despite this, no warning signs had been put up.
