Working on a building site is a hazardous occupation, but workers should still expect proper facilities to ensure they are safe while at work. If there is a breach of health and safety regulations and an accident happens, you could be able to claim compensation for personal injuries.
When a 51-year-old site manager was injured on a building site in Cheshire, he turned to Bartletts expert personal injury solicitors in Chester to get the compensation he deserved.
The site manager was working on building site over winter, starting early in the morning when it was still dark. He went into a toilet block to find there were no working lights, then upon stepping down from the toilet block, he discovered the step had been removed and so he misjudged his decent and fell, twisting his ankle in the process.
He was taken to the accident and emergency department of the local hospital, where his ankle was examined and x-rayed. He was prescribed pain killers and a course of physiotherapy to help him regain full mobility.
When he came to see one Bartletts specialist personal injury lawyers in Chester, the building site owners and the contractors were disputing who was responsible for removing the step.
However, our tenacious lawyer kept on their heels and eventually persistence paid off with a full commercial settlement figure covering compensation for personal injury, compensation for care and assistance, compensation for loss of earnings, and rehabilitation costs without going to court.
