Stable Worker Receives Accident at Work Compensation

Posted: March 28th, 2011

A stable hand, injured in a fall from height at racehorse trainer Amanda Perrett’s Lambourn stables, has won a personal injury compensation claim for 127,500 pounds.

Kevin Parker had been steam cleaning a stable in the racing yard, when the scaffolding plank on which he had been standing tipped up, causing him to drop eight feet to the ground. As a result of the incident, Kevin fractured both of his heels – injuries which meant he had to spend a prolonged period of time in hospital, and was unable to resume his equestrian career after being discharged.

After taking legal counsel, Kevin sued Ms Perrett for failing to provide a safe environment in which to work and for being in contravention of the Work at Height Regulations (2005). Agreement was reached without court action.
