Settlement agreed for crush injury accident at work claim


In April 2011, Simpson Millar Solicitors accepted a case from a client who had suffered an accident in the workplace.

Accident at work

Our client was in employment when he was working on a press machine. Due to the equipment being faulty he sustained a crush injury to his thumb.

After the accident, the employer modified the equipment to ensure no more injuries could be sustained, thus making it difficult to deny their fault in the accident. As a result the defendant accepted liability.

Once liability was admitted medical evidence was obtained regarding our client's injuries and negotiations were made to come to an agreed settlement in relation to the personal injury claim.

Compensation of £5,000 was accepted and awarded to our client following their accident at work.
