Man suffers brain damage at cake factory

A cake-making factory has been fined after a work accident left one of its employees with brain damage.

The father-of-six was left permanently brain damaged after he was hit on his head by a falling pillar weighing 65k while he worked at a Merseyside factory.

The company were fined £14,000 after it was found guilty of breaching the Health and Safety at Work Act.

The maintenance engineer, who had been at the company for 34 years, had been asked to remove the pillar when it fell on him, leaving him with severe brain damage and spinal injuries.

The 61-year-old now has difficulty speaking and moving and was in hospital for more than six months.

The court's ruling against the company has given hope to the relatives of the injured worker that their work accident compensation claim for his injuries will be successful.
