Carpenter who injured his ankle due to a defect at his place of work receives £15,000 in compensation

At all relevant times our client was contracted through an agency as a Joiner at a work site.  On the day of the accident our client had been working on a scaffold and as he was descending a ladder he stepped onto the edge of a polystyrene brick which had been used to fill a hole.  The brick moved causing him to twist his ankle.

How Hayward Baker helped

This was a Fast Track case and was run by one of our senior lawyers Gary Lee.

Get in touch today to see if you could be entitled to compensation for your road traffic accident

Liability was initially denied but Gary fought hard for our client and in the end liability was admitted on a  partial basis. We were then  tasked  to prove that the injuries were as a result of the accident and we did this by getting our client examined by a number of medical experts who formulated a report on our client’s injuries. It was these reports that we used to prove our client’s injuries and also to value the claim for damages (compensation for injuries) and special damages (out of pocket expenses as a result of the accident).

The expenses that our client incurred as a direct result of the accident were:

  • Travel Expenses to and from medical appointments
  • Loss of Earnings
  • Future Loss of Earnings
  • Medical Expenses
  • Future Medical Expenses

Value of compensation and losses awarded

Our client was awarded damages of £15,000  inclusive of special damages
