£5,500 awarded for injury in the work place
We were recently instructed by a man to make a claim for compensation for an accident he suffered at work
Our client was attending a warehouse unit during his employment with his employer to carry out maintenance work. As he carried out this work a door collapsed
and to avoid injury, he leapt out of the way
which resulted in him falling and sustaining injury.
The injury that he suffered aggravated a pre-existing back injury
and doctors said he would be likely to return to his pre-accident state within 18-24 months’ time.
The defendant admitted liability following a prompt investigation. Negotiations took place which resulted in a high end settlement of £5,500 compensation
awarded to our client.
