Worker Awarded Four-Figure Settlement For Hand Injuries
29 November 2016
A worker was awarded a four-figure settlement following an accident at work that resulted in a loss of earnings due to a hand injury that left him unable to work.
Slater and Gordon Solicitor: Anne Thomas is a chartered legal executive at the Slater and Gordon Lawyers offices in Sheffield.
Settlement Value: £3,553
What Happened: Our client was carrying a wheel when his colleagues put it down without giving any notice or time to remove his hand, which became trapped.
Impact: Our client suffered injuries to his hand, for which had to undergo a course of physiotherapy to aid his recovery. He also sustained financial loss as a consequence of this accident. The injury was to his dominant hand, so it placed a significant level of restriction on his ability to carry out his daily activities.
How Slater and Gordon Helped: We obtained expert medical evidence and managed to secure an admission of liability from the defendant. We then entered negotiations with the defendant and were able to agree a settlement.
Decision: Settlement of £3,553.
