Claim For Fall From A Scaffold – £125000 Settlement
Mr Kirkland came to Mulderrigs after a fall from a scaffold at work.
He was tiling a client’s roof early one morning when the accident happened.
Mr Kirkland stepped onto a nearby scaffold so that he could inspect the work he had been doing.
But a colleague had removed one of the scaffolding bars the previous day in order to make room for a drain pipe and forgot to put it back.
So the scaffolding collapsed as soon as Mr Kirkland stepped onto it.
He fell over twenty feet to the ground.
As a result of the accident Mr Kirkland was badly hurt.
He had injuries to his face, neck, hands chest and back.
It took well over a year for him to fully recover and he was away from work for several months.
Mulderrigs have been dealing with accidents at work for over twenty-five years.
So we took on the claim against the scaffolding company and we agreed to act on “no win no fee” terms.
Medical experts provided detailed reports about all the injuries.
We also obtained full details of the loss of earnings.
The insurers for the scaffolding company quickly admitted liability for the accident.
So we were able to enter into negotiations with them.
Mr Kirkland recovered £125,000 in compensation.
