£7,000 recovered for client following injury to fingers in accident at work

We recently settled a claim for a Polish client, who was involved in an accident at work. Our client was employed as a kitchen assistant in a care centre, however he was requested by his employer to transfer a TV from the second floor to the first floor on their premises. He was performing this task with two other colleagues and they used a shopping trolley to help them with this task as they had no other equipment available. They placed the TV in the shopping trolley and as they were transferring it the TV slipped and crushed our client's two fingers.

We have successfully argued that the defendant was in breach of various Regulations including the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992, the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998, the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998. The defendant failed to institute and enforce a safe system of work and failed to take any adequate care for the safety of our client.

The claim settled out of court for £7,000 in full and final settlement.

The service was personal, professional and considered. I was treated so kindly and in the end I knew that not only had I found the right organisation but also the right person.
