Slater and Gordon Personal Injury Solicitor Matthew Tomlinson secured compensation for a 45-year old steelworker injured in a work accident.

Matthew's client slipped on a liquid spillage on platform steps and fell on his back, landing directly on the metal steps.

As a result of the fall Matthew's client sustained two fractures to his back which left him with ongoing symptoms and restrictions.

Matthew ensured that his client was provided with access to prompt medical attention and treatment and worked closely with rehabilitation providers to ensure that his client was given the best possible aftercare.

In successfully securing compensation for his client, Matthew Tomlinson said that he was pleased that his client has now returned to his pre-accident employment with his employers making adjustments to ensure that he can essentially live the life that he was living prior to the accident. 

Matthew said that it was pleasing that his client was able to return to work and that this fact, together with the compensation secured, represented a very positive outcome for his client and his family.
