Carrs Solicitors Win claim for Senior Scaffolding Engineer injured in construction site fall

Carrs Solicitors have recently settled a claim for Mr D a senior scaffolding engineer involved in a complex scaffold construction at a site in Central London for a six figure sum. Our client who had severe leg injuries was a self-employed contractor who was heavily involved in the planning and execution of the project which had a design flaw in relation to the process for striking a birdcage scaffold that had not been foreseen. This however did not absolve the main contractors from their responsibility to playing a proactive and critical role in the planning and supervision of all phases of the build as required under Regulations 4 and 6 of the Work at Height Regulations 2005.

Through our considerable experience of construction site activities and the requisite health and safety provisions we were able to understand and work closely with our client achieve a satisfactory result.

At the conclusion of the case we were given permission to report our success and to publish the following testimonial from our client:

“I would like to thank yourself and everyone at Carrs Solicitors for a very professional job.

When I first had the accident I was advised to contact numerous high profile firms, my experience over the years has taught me that those who make the most noise normally fall short.

But Carrs solicitors don't make a lot of noise, instead they work hard and diligently to get the right results as you have proven to me.

Thanks again”
