Personal Injury Solicitor Negotiates Work Accident Compensation of £9,000

11 July 2012

In this work accident compensation case Personal Injury Solicitor Joanne Doherty successfully represented a woman who slipped and fell at her workplace.

Just prior to the slip and fall accident our client was walking towards the staff transport shuttle bus. The pathway to the shuttle bus was covered with snow and ice.

There had been inclement weather conditions for some time and no attempt had been made to clear the snow and ice or to grit the hospital site. Our client slipped and fell to the ground. The colleague she was walking with also slipped and fell on top of her. She subsequently sustained a fracture injury to her ankle.

Liability was admitted and Joanne negotiated a work accident compensation settlement in the amount of £9,000 damages.
