The accident at work claim was made when a worker in a supermarket had a horrific fall in an aisle of a supermarket when passing by to stack a shelf. The accident was caused by a bottle that had been knocked off the shelf causing spillage on the floor. 

The supermarket did not have a regular system of cleaning and maintenance of the floor.

As a result of the spillage the injured worker fell awkwardly to the floor, his right dominant shoulder taking the brunt of the fall to the ground. He was in severe pain and could not move his shoulder.

The worker was helped by other employees who then took him straight to accident and emergency hospital for medical advice. The consultant undertaken x-rays to see if anything was fractured and dislocated. The results shown serious dislocations to the right shoulder.

Following attendance upon the consultant he underwent surgery to stable his shoulder and some metal work was inserted.  

He was advised by the doctor to get plenty of rest for the shoulder to recover. He returned to work within 1 month and was initially placed on light duties.  He returned to his pre-accident level of work within 9 months and made a 90% recovery within 18 months from the accident.
 
There was some permanent damage to his shoulder where he would experience pain when extending his arm.  The expert confirmed this injury was unlikely to improve and was therefore permanent.

Accident at work solicitors obtained compensation for £12,500 for the work related accident. The worker also received compensation for expenses and loss of earnings.

The accident at work solicitors acted on a NO WIN NO FEE agreement and recovered all legal costs off the insurance company. The worker received 100% compensation and 0% legal costs.
