Work injury claim example:
A Romford man who was employed by ITV on the set of This Morning suffered an injury after falling down a hole that had been left uncovered.
The circumstances of the accident:
If you or someone you know has been injured in an accident at work that was not your fault, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.
Contractors had been working on the set transforming a storeroom into what is now known as ‘The Hub’.
They had dug a ditch in the floor of the studio which they later failed to cover.
The issue of the hole in the floor was brought to the attention of the studio manager, however nothing was done to remedy the situation and make the working environment safe.
During live filming the claimant fell into the hole tearing cartilage in his knee.
The injury he sustained was significant and required two operations to correct the damage.
Since his operation he has been unable to return to full time work because the incident has made an underlying arthritic condition he already had far worse.
Proving the claim:
After the accident the television centre worker contacted his union who recommended he make a claim for compensation
A case was bought against ITV who denied responsibility saying the injured worker was at fault.
After witnesses came forward to support his claim ITV agreed compensation of £10,000.
