Subject: Driver becomes paralysed after accident at work
Two haulage companies have been sentenced for safety failings after an HGV driver was left paralysed from the chest down following an accident at work claim.
The work accident happened when the 45 year old was crushed as he was closing the rear doors of his HGV, when another lorry reversed into the area he was working in, crushing him between two vehicles.
As a result of the work accident, the man suffered life-changing injuries and will be unable to work again. As well as his paralysis, he suffered a brain injury which has affected his sight and lost the use of his arms.
