Father of four receives 6 figure work accident compensation

A father of four left paralysed for life after he was ejected from a 200ft-high crane cab has won a massive £2.7m compensation payout.

The man was thrown into the air when the crane he was operating collapsed onto an apartment block.

The accident was due to a ‘catastrophic’ miscalculation of the machinery’s foundations which caused it to topple over, leading to three companies being convicted last year of serious health and safety failings which left the 58-year-old a paraplegic.

Now, after a four-year legal fight, the victim has been granted £2.7m compensation package, along with a £180,000 payment each year for the rest of his life.
