Summary of Example Accident At Work Claim
-Work related injury, back injury, back pain, accident at work, crush injury, fork lift truck, £5200 (accident injury)
A worker sustained an accident at work when a forklift truck reversed and stuck him from behind crushing him against a warehouse frame. The employer admitted fault when accident at work solicitors sued.
The lower back injury prevented the worker returning to work for 9 weeks. The case was more complicated because the worker had suffered from pre-existing back injury where the pain was intermittent in nature. The independent medical doctor was of the opinion that the injury due to the accident at work lasted for 9 months and the on going symptoms were due to the old injury.
The accident at work solicitors recovered £5,200 for the industrial accident injury claim. Plus loss of earnings, travel expenses and incidental losses.
