Employee suing Phones4U after accident at work
Personal injury compensation in excess of £300,000 is being sought by a woman who claims she was left permanently disabled following an accident at work.
According to the Eastbourne Herald, Louise Mennell is taking legal action against former employer Phones4U - a firm with more than 5,000 members of staff across the UK - because of the injuries she sustained during an incident in November 2009.
Ms Mennell has issued a writ to the High Court in London in which she states that she has developed severe complex regional pain syndrome after a stack of computers fell on her foot.
Phones4U has already admitted liability for this accident but has been unable to come to an agreement with Ms Mennell with regard to the size of her damages settlement.
The 22-year-old is therefore suing the company for her ordeal, which she insists also resulted in her encountering serious psychological health issues such as depression.
