Worker seeks compensation for crush injuries

A road paver who suffered severe personal injuries in Scotland is seeking work accident compensation after a lorry crushed him.

The man had been carrying out road repairs near Rhonehouse on the C2 road, when a tipper lorry collided with the tar spreader vehicle he had been working from.

He suffered severe back and pelvic injures in the crash, which have caused long lasting damage.

Now, two years on from the incident, he is still unable to lift heavy objects and cannot even pick up his young daughter. Medics have also warned him that he is likely to develop arthritis as a result of the injuries sustained.

At the time of the accident the man had been working for a firm that had been sub-contracted by Dumfries and Galloway Council. The council has since been fined £40,000 for failing to implement a safe system for working vehicles on the site.

The injury victim is reportedly seeking work accident compensation from the council for the injuries he suffered.
