Fall From Height Claim For Farm Worker
Mr Vincent is a farm worker in South Wales. While he was at work one day last year he was asked to clamber onto a tall stack of hay bales because the stacker truck they normally used wasn’t available.
It was a ridiculous way of going about things and our client ended up falling from the stack of bales and suffering serious injuries to his shoulder.
All employers have a duty to take care for the safety of their worker, and there are strict regulations to protect people when they are asked to work at heights.
We were easily able to demonstrate that the employers were in breach of the regulations, and should be held responsible for the accident.
We recently settled his claim for over £19,000.
