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.
