Man Compensated for Crushed Finger

03 October 2010

Our client was asked by his employer to remove a billet. The only available piece of equipment to do this job was a scaffolding pole. He placed the pole under the billet and as he moved it, it fell and landed on his finger causing an injury. It was argued that the Defendant was negligent because sufficient equipment had not been provided to complete the task.  It was because of this negligence that the injury occurred. The defendants admitted liability, and with help from our expert health and safety solicitors, our client was awarded £2750 for the injury to his finger.
