Accident at work leads to £500k

Accident at work leads to £500k

A man has been awarded in excess of £500,000 in personal injury compensation after an accident at work left him temporarily paralysed.

Colin White, a delivery driver of 53 years of age, has been told by medical experts that he will never work again following an incident in York in 2005 which saw him fall from his vehicle, according to the York Press.

The accident occurred when he was provided with a van that had a tail lift, which he had not been trained to use properly by his employer and he struck the back of his neck on the implement when he fell off it.

However, with help of the personal injury Solicitors at Slater and Gordon Lawyers, Mr White has now received a compensation settlement of more than £500,000 for his ordeal, which has left him in a state of constant pain.
