Legal proceedings launched after man nearly dies in accident at work
Legal proceedings have been initiated by a man who almost lost his life in a workplace accident.
Sean Fowler was crushed by a crane while working at New Cut East, the Ipswich Evening Star reports.
The 37-year-old is now seeking compensation for the suffering he endured.
He sustained a broken pelvis and a torn urethra, among other things, as a result of the impact.
Mr Fowler was taken to Ipswich Hospital - which is run by the Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust - where he underwent a series of surgical procedures.
During his eight-month stay at the medical centre, he contracted a bone infection which meant he had to have two additional operations.
Commenting on his injuries, the father of one said: "My insides were torn up and I had to have about eight or nine operations - it really didn't look like I was going to make it."
He is still on pain killers and takes antidepressants but recently started a new job as a driver for National Car Hire.
