£40,000.00 Compensation After Lack of Health and Safety Regulations Result in Accident Leaving Man Blind

08 April 2011

Our client was working as a mechanic when he was involved in an accident at work.  Some material of the machine he was working on broke off and struck his face, blinding him in one eye.  He had not been provided with personal protective equipment (PPE) so a health and safety claim was made to the employer.  

After long negotiations between our expert accident at work solicitors and the defendant a settlement of £40,000 was agreed in compensation for our client.
