Health and Safety Claim Following Injury at Work

29 November 2010

An electrician made a health and safety claim after he was involved in an accident at work.  He fell into a deep trench which had been left unguarded and unmarked.  He was knocked unconscious as a result of this accident, and initial thoughts were that he had been very seriously injured.  Fortunately, our client made an extremely good recovery from his injuries and was able to return to work soon after his accident. The defendant admitted liability for the breach of duty in the work place, and our expert health and safety solicitors helped our client recover over £3,000 to compensate the injuries he suffered.
