Crush Injury Accident at Work Claim Settled for £3,100 Compensation

24 July 2012

This work accident injury case was successfully dealt with by Personal Injury Solicitor Katie Gray.

This client sustained an injury at work whilst performing his regular work duties. He was unloading a delivery of drinks from the back of a lorry and the cage he was moving was incorrectly stacked, with cartons at the bottom and large bottles of drink at the top.

As the cage was manoeuvred off the tail lift, the cartons at the bottom collapsed. The weight of the cage was thrown forwards and it landed on top of our client causing crush injuries to his leg.

Liability was admitted and Katie negotiated a compensation settlement of £3,100 for our client.
