£25,000 compensation for an accident at a building site

The accident:

We helped a man claim compensation who suffered injuries after an accident at work.

His job entailed working on the roof of a derelict building. After working for some time, the weather worsened, restricting him from continuing so he began to clear away his tools.

The injury:

It was at this point that he slipped and the roof/glass he was standing on caved in, causing him to fall through it and land on the floor inside the building.

He was rescued by the fire brigade and taken straight to the hospital. As a result of the accident, Mr B fractured his hip and sustained severe cutting, bruises and soft tissue injuries to his arm, elbow, hip and face, leaving him unable to work. The accident aggravated a neck injury that he had previously sustained from work, which caused him to collapse due to sharp pain on several occasions. As well as the physiological injuries, he also experienced psychological trauma which caused memory loss.

How we helped claim compensation:

Our client’s boss was keen to settle the issue without the need for any legal procedures, so offered him £10,000 in compensation. However, we advised against accepting the offer as the amount was not proportionate to the injuries he suffered. He rejected the offer and instructed us to proceed with the claim.

The employer admitted liability for the accident and we obtained detailed medical evidence so a reasonable settlement amount could be finalised. They offered £14,000 in compensation, but this was rejected as our client was still experiencing on-going symptoms from the injuries and therefore required further treatment that we advised should be considered in the claim.

After further examinations and treatments, we recommended that an offer of £25,000 would be sufficient compensation for his injuries. The employer rejected this at first, proposing a counter-offer, but later accepted, paying £25,000 compensation in full and final settlement for the personal injury claim.
