Uralvagonzavod to pay compensation to worker

7 October 2009 (12:06)

The court of Nizhniy Tagil’s Dzerzhinskiy district ruled in favor of the local prosecutor’s demand that Uralvagonzavod pay moral damage compensation to the plant’s former worker who’d had an accident at work. The court’s decision came into effect on October 6, 2009, the spokesperson for Sverdlovsk Region public prosecution authorities reports.

‘It was detected in the course of our inquiry that the plant’s foremen were to blame for the accident, so the victim was not guilty of what had happened,’ the spokesperson explains.

Dzerzhinskiy district’s public prosecutor, who took the case to court on the worker’s behalf, insisted that the defendant pay 40,000 RUR in compensation for the moral damage. His claim was fully sustained by the court.
