Compensation to be sought after fatal accident at work?

Compensation to be sought after fatal accident at work?

Compensation could be sought by a family on behalf of a loved one who died after suffering a serious head injury during an accident at work.

Noel Corbin passed away at the age of 29 in February 2008 when he fell a distance of 13. 5 metres from a four-storey home in the London district of Belsize Park.

At the time of this incident, the engineer was working on the roof of the house for satellite television installation company Foxtel and an investigation conducted by the Health and Safety Executive has concluded that his employer was liable for his death.

It was found that Foxtel had not offered Mr Corbin any formal training in terms of how to work at height safely, meaning his family could seek damages for this negligence.

Recently, a family were awarded £300,000 in clinical negligence compensation following the death of Mark Bonehill, the Daily Mail reported.
