Head Injury at work claim results in compensation award


We were approached by a gentleman after he sustained an injury in an accident at his place of work.

Accident at Work

He had been using a machine which had recently been fitted with a precision saw. The saw stopped working so he isolated it at the electric panel and tried to access the saw area to see what was causing the problem.

Due to the space constriction he had to go down onto his knees to access the area. As he came out of the area he banged his head causing a laceration which resulted in scarring.

His employer’s admitted liability for the accident immediately after liaising with their insurers. An initial offer of £1,200 was put forward by the insurers however we felt that this was not sufficient.

Medical evidence was obtained and we asked for improved offers to be made. An offer of £2,350 was put forward which was accepted by our client for his accident at work.

Regarding his experience working with Simpson Millar Solicitors, our client said "I would like to say how professional and helpful the company of solicitors was in helping me when needed."
