Construction accident news – Man sustains spinal injury in workplace accident

21st September 2011

Officials expect the existing secondary school adjacent to the site to open as usual at the start of term and the building under construction, which will replace the school, should open towards the end of the year.

The construction company stated that all the injured workers were kept in hospital overnight following the accident at work.

The firm added that it would cooperate fully as part of an investigation led by the police and a Health and Safety Executive (HSE) team.

It has not been reported whether any of the injured workers intends to make an industrial injury claim but one or more of them may be eligible for compensation since the workplace accident led to pain, suffering and potential long term spinal injury.
