Aberdeen lorry driver sues for £30k after serious fall

Posted in: Arm Injury Foot Injuries Leg Injuries Workplace Injuries Workplace Slip 

A 58-year-old lorry driver from Aberdeen is suing an engineering company for around £30,000 after an accident left him with life-changing injuries. Robert Craig had been carrying out a delivery when the accident happened in July 2011. He has now opened a legal battle against Whittaker Engineering with the hope to win around £30,000 in damages.

Whittaker Engineering is an Aberdeenshire-based firm that designs and builds equipment and components required for the marine and offshore industries. It has been supplying demand for the last three decades.

“Caught in reinforcement panels”

Mr Craig, from Kincorth, had been delivering concrete to Whittaker Engineering, based in Stonehaven, when his foot became stuck in-between concrete panels. The fall caused him to suffer numerous injuries. His lawyer described the incident in the following way: “His foot got caught in concrete reinforcement panels. It was just like a trip, and he fell over and injured himself.” He argued that due to the extent of Mr Craig’s workplace injuries, which will mean a significant loss of earnings, he should expect to receive around £30,000 in compensation.

It was heard that the accident caused Mr Craig to suffer a serious injury to his right leg, which medical staff worry could result in permanent damage, and multiple injuries to his right forearm. The accident took place on the 12 July 2011.
