Fatal work accident compensation for tanker driver

In 2007, Mr Bell, our client’s husband, was injured at work when he fell from the top of a tanker. He was required to clean the tanker but had to do so without the benefit of a gantry. The provision of a gantry is normal practice throughout the haulage industry, and would have provided Mr Bell with a solid and safe raised platform on which to stand whilst cleaning the tanker. Such a gantry was provided by the defendant following Mr Bell’s fatal accident.
