Background to the Case
Alex Brown and Ben Davey, work accident lawyers at Dean Wilson, have been busy acting for Mr A who sustained multiple injuries after a fall from height at work.
Mr A, a self-employed carpenter, was engaged by the Defendant to build a pitch roof on a garage conversion. Within an hour of arriving on site Mr A fell from height after scaffolding which the Defendant had erected collapsed.
Mr A fell approximately three metres to the floor landing on his side and striking his head on a plant pot. Mr A sustained a fracture to his pelvis, a complex fracture of his wrist, as well as a laceration/fracture to his eye/eye socket. He was unable to weight bear for almost two months and was unable to work for over five months. The wrist injury required initial surgery with follow up procedures and an increased chance that it would affect his ability to work in the future.
The Accident Compensation Obtained
Alex Brown and Ben Davey were able to obtain reports from three independent experts who set out what the prognosis for Mr A would be later in life and to what extent his injuries where likely to affect him. Despite the Defendant’s insurer failing to admit liability (or even confirm that they would provide insurance cover to the Defendant for the claim!), Ben and Alex were able to settle the claim. The damages received compensated Mr A for his loss of earnings, pain and suffering, as well as allowing him to undergo future treatment required.
Mr A’s wife said of Alex and Ben “from the start to the final end result we found Dean Wilson to be professional, precise, communicative and very knowledgeable in their field of expertise. Little or nothing was too much for them, they accommodated our every need especially in terms of visiting our home to oversee business since my husband was housebound with little mobility due to a serious accident at work.”
