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
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.
