Worker seeks £200k personal injury compensation
A man is seeking a personal injury compensation settlement of £200,000 after sustaining a serious back injury during an alleged accident at work.
According to the Daily Mail, Inacio Guedes is seeking the damages sum from Pizza Express - an organisation that opened its first British branch in 1965 - after being forced to undergo spinal fusion surgery following an incident at one of the chain's restaurants in Middlesex.
The bakery supervisor claims that he severely strained his back as he attempted to lift a box of frozen dough balls that had been mistakenly filled to twice their normal capacity.
During a case heard at the High Court on London, the 47-year-old alleges that he still suffers from pain as a result of the accident, as it has added to a pre-existing back condition.
According to his legal representative, Mr Guedes will no longer be able to "undertake any work which involves lifting, bending or prolonged commuting".
