A British scaffolder severely disabled following a workplace accident received a substantial sum in compensation after help from his trade union.
Despite making considerable improvements the man is still severely disabled. His brain injury affected his ability to walk, talk and use his upper limbs. However he has made significant improvements and is now able to walk with assistance, talk and has use of his upper limbs.
Following his accident his mother contacted his trade union, Unite, which instructed its lawyers Thompsons Solicitors to pursue a claim for compensation. Thompsons was able to secure several interim payments from Powertherm Access Services before settling the claim out of court.
