Accident at work victim receives back injury compensation


We have helped a client obtain compensation for a back injury that they sustained during an accident at work.

Our client suffered a soft tissue back injury following an accident at work with a roller shutter which jammed whilst he was trying to lift it.

It was 23 months before our client decided to put in a claim for personal injury compensation so upon receipt of instructions our personal injury team had to submit an urgent letter of claim to the client's employer in order to be within time limits for bringing a claim.

We managed to obtain a full admission of liability from the employer and our client received just under £2,500 in compensation for his injuries.

Lisa Sheldon, Personal Injury Solicitor at Manchester law firm Simpson Millar said: "Claims of this type can be straight forward but if there is a long delay between the accident and instructing a solicitor it can be problematic. In this case our client also had a pre-existing condition which made the case more challenging."

"The first offer of compensation was rejected and so we negotiated on our client's behalf until a good offer for his injuries was made."
