Fall from a Height Injury Claim in Cheshire

Posted on August 27, 2019 by SheldonDavidsonSolicitors


Over £25,000

SDS received instructions following a recommendation for a previous client, to act for a gardener and labourer who was injured when he fell over 10 feet from a scaffold onto his head and neck onto a stone floor, when working on a barn conversion for a former soap opera star in Cheshire.

The claim was based on the fact that the scaffold had not been properly constructed and no harness was available.

Insurers for the Builder who had engaged the client initially refused to deal with the claim, stating that there was a problem with the Builder’s insurance.

SDS did not accept this and applied to the Court for the insurance company to disclose all the documents relating to the Builder’s insurance, which made it clear that those insurers had no justification not to deal with the client’s claim. The case then settled, with an award of over £25,000.
