A subcontractor has been injured due to an accident which occurred on site where he was contracted to take out work.
On the day of the accident, the claimant was blowing up air bags when the claimant was asked to remove a nail from a flat piece of wood by one of his colleagues. The claimant then had to climb up a set of step ladders which was around two metres in height.
The claimant removed the nail from the piece of wood and at the same time, the horizontal support at the end of the structure snapped causing concrete blocks to fall on top of him from behind, which resulted in him falling and landing on his right hand side.
After the incident occurred, the claimant sought medical attention and found that he had suffered a compression fracture to his spine together with extensive bruising to his hip and back. He also suffered soft tissue injury to his back and an injury to his knee, neck, right shoulder, hip and pelvic area. This resulted in physiological problems for the claimant post accident.
The claimant was recommended physiotherapy sessions which he attended, but did not seem to benefit him.
