A serious injury occurred whilst a forklift truck driver struck an fellow worker and crushed his let onto a wall. The fork pinned his leg to the wall for several seconds causing the crushing injury. Within the premises there were CCTV evidence, which confirmed the nature of the accident.
The employer admitted blame of his employee who drove the forklift truck. The injured worker was unable to return to his labouring work due the extent of the injuries to his leg. At the time of the accident at work the injured worker was 58 years old. The leg injury resulted in severe fractures with several operations and detailed physiotherapy over a number months following each operation. He was left with a slight limp and suffered from pain especially in the cold weather; he also found it difficult to kneel for long periods of time.
The injured worker was unable to go for long walks, which he loved to do with his wife and required care and assistance in respect of the labouring tasks around the home and DIY.
His accident at work solicitor obtained £75,000 for his leg injury and loss of earnings, care, DIY costs and other expenses. The worker received 100% of his compensation awarded; no legal costs were deducted from his accident at work solicitors.
