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."
