Personal Injury Solicitor Successfully Concludes an Accident at Work Claim

18 July 2012

In this accident at work case Personal Injury Solicitor Matthew Tomlinson represented a woman who suffered a back injury.

Just prior to the accident our client was using steps to access a box of cheese in a walk-in fridge.

The area was very crowded and this was a difficult and awkward task to perform as she has to reach beyond her capabilities. In the process of reaching for the cheese our client fell and injured her back.

The defendant denied liability on the basis that she simply lost her footing and there was conflicting witness evidence. Matthew eventually negotiated a compensation settlement in the amount of £3,000 for our client which brought this work accident claim to an amicable conclusion less than a week before the Trial.
