Accident at Work – fall from ladder
A worker made an accident at work claim against his employer when he had fallen off scaffolding which was caused by work equipment left in the workplace by another employee of the same employer. The worker was 20 foot off the ground when he was securing the scaffolding his foot came into contact with a heavy duty drill left on the floor, which caused him to trip, stumble and fall to the ground. As he did so, he twisted his ankle causing soft tissue injury and wrenched his back in the accident.
The worker was taken to hospital straight away after the accident suffering from pain to his lower back and foot. The worker was hospitalised for 1 day and was told by doctors to rest. When the worker returned to work after 3 weeks he was put on light duties for 4 weeks and returned to his pre-accident level of work within two months of the accident claim. The injured claimant fully recovered from his injuries within 12 months from the accident.
