£23,000 awarded after Health and Safety Claim Made for Man Injured at Work

14 October 2010

Our client was at work when he was instructed to lift a long and heavy steel pipe with a colleague.  Whilst lifting the pipe the man injured his back because it was too heavy, and he had received no health and safety training.

As a result of this accident at work, our client was left with injuries to his back, including a 3 year aggravation of an underlying spine condition.

With help from our expert health and safety solicitors, our client was awarded over £23,000 for the injuries suffered.
