Five Figure Settlement and Rehabilitation for Forklift Foot Fracture
Our client was at work, adjusting the forks of a forklift, when the right fork fell onto his foot.
Although he was wearing the correct protective clothing (steel toed boots), he suffered from a fracture which caused him significant pain and discomfort. He immediately sought medical help.
Our client experienced moments of immobility after this accident, when his foot was bandaged up; he also had to wear a boot. This meant that he was on crutches for a period. His parents and partner provided him with care and transport whilst he was unable to work, drive or take care of himself. He was subsequently unable to work for 10 weeks after the accident had occurred.
Our client made several visits to the hospital after his injury, as well as attending physiotherapy appointments. Due to this, he accumulated a significant amount of medical expenses.
As well as this, our client was told he needed surgery to his foot, which would leave him unable to work for a further six months. After the accident, our client also needed regular steroid injections to prevent his foot from deforming.
How we Helped
We were able to provide our client with the right support moving forward. With our help, our client was able to gather all relevant medical and financial reports to show exactly what losses were incurred. This allowed our client to focus more on his recovery, as we dealt with the legal side.
We were able to secure our client a compensation award of £48,750.00. This payment helped our client to cover all his past medical expenses, as well as any future appointments he needed to attend. This compensation also covered the time our client spent out of work.
