Accident in the workplace awards client with £1,647 compensation
Our client required our assistance to pursue a claim for an accident in the workplace
where he suffered injury to his right knee
and right ankle.
Our client was at work when he had to climb onto a machine to clamp the working metal to it. As he stepped down, he slipped and landed on the floor
. The floor was uneven and he caught his foot on a bolt
sticking out of the floor.
Health and Safety officers had previously noted the uneven flooring and the bolt however they had failed to do anything about it
. The matter was reported following the accident and a step was built next to the machine to prevent the accident from occurring again.
Liability was admitted and compensation of £1,674
was awarded to our client.
