Several broken bones suffered during an accident at work could lead to a work man in the construction industry pursuing a claim for personal injury compensation.
Vasile Ionel Vatca sustained fractures to his leg, heel and wrist when he fell from a height of around seven metres from an unguarded roof while working for R & G Construction, in London last March.
At the time of the accident, the 28-year-old was working on a major refurbishment project in Belgravia when he climbed on top of the surface to clear away debris that had been left over.
An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) established that his employer had failed to make sure there were adequate precautions in place to prevent accidents occurring.
HSE inspector Andrew Verrall-Withers commented, "This was an appalling and entirely preventable accident which has severely affected a young man's life."
