Man seeks £150k in damages after suffering severe burns in explosion

Man seeks £150k in damages after suffering severe burns in explosion
A man who suffered severe burns during an accident at work is pursuing a compensation claim of £150,000 against his employer.

Adam Segrave sustained 14 per cent burns and lacerations to his body when he caught fire following an explosion at Cambridge Science Park - which opened in 1970 and now houses more than 100 businesses - in June 2009, according to cambridge-news.co.uk.

The worker is consequently suing Adcock Refrigeration and Air Conditioning for up to £150,000 due to the fact that he spent 12 days in hospital under the effects of strong drugs such as ketamine and morphine in order to cope with the pain after he had skin grafts to repair some of the damage.

Meanwhile, the 34-year-old also has flash burns on his face as well as lost hair and impaired hearing caused by the blast, which occurred when a worker used oxygen instead of nitrogen to flush out pipes before installing new air conditioning units.
