Boatbuilder compensated after injury at work

A boatbuilder has successfully pursued a compensation claim after he was injured in an accident at work.

Our client was working on a boat when he tripped on a set of steps which were being built. The steps were incorrectly made as one step was significantly higher than the others. The differing height of the steps caused our client to trip and suffer a back injury.

The back injury caused him pain and restricted his mobility, making his home life difficult and forcing him to change his work pattern to aid his recovery. Our client had to undergo physiotherapy as a result of the injury and his symptoms lasted for a year and a half after the accident.

Following the accident, the man contacted our specialist personal injury solicitors who investigated a compensation claim on his behalf. His employer admitted liability for failing to check that work on its boats was properly carried out and compensation was secured for our client.
