Accidents at Work

Real Life Experiences

We acted for a lady whose husband had a devastating and unfortunate accident whilst working as a roofer on a site which was not adequately provided with health and safety equipment.

Elizabeth

We acted for Elizabeth, a lady whose husband had a devastating accident whilst working as a roofer and was not adequately provided with health and safety equipment. The site did not have a safety net which ultimately resulted in his tragic death.

We represented the family at the inquest and then pursued a claim. We negotiated an award of more than £100,000 for ‘loss of dependency’ (loss of the benefit of her husband’s income) for the remaining five years of his working life.
