Workplace accident claim injury example:
Accident in the workplace, worker injured due to a trip and fall over office wires linked to phones and computers. A compensation claim by the accident solicitors who acted on behalf of an employee obtained £8000 compensation for the accident at work, injures sustained a serious fracture to the nose and minor cuts and bruising.
The accident at work claim was made, when a worker had tripped and fell over telephone and computer wires left unattended and unguarded. This caused the worker to trip over the wires and she landed heavily striking her head against a desk. She fractured her nose on the edge of the desk.
The injured worker was in severe pain and went to accident and emergency hospital for medical attention. The consultant advised there was a serious fracture to the nose.
Whilst surgery would improve the appearance there was some minor cosmetic appearance that caused the injured worker to become depressed about her appearance. She often stayed at home and took 2 months to return to work. She always felt self-conscious about her appearance. Her GP prescribed her strong pain killers to help reduce swelling and pain.
Accident at work solicitors obtained compensation for £8000 for the work related accident injury alone. The injured 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.
