The accident at work claim was made when a worker had fallen through the scaffolding flooring when a defective plank gave way under his foot. His right leg went through the plank but he managed to save himself from falling down to the next floor. He was helped by other workers to his feet and taken to hospital.
He sustained multiple injuries due to the accident including a fractured tibia and fibula. His leg had inserted some metal work which was removed after some 2 – 3 months. Following a course of physiotherapy he returned to work on light duties after about 4 months from the accident returning to his pre-accident level of work within 9 – 10 months.
The injured worker continued to suffer from occasional aches and pains to the lower limb which would eventually ease over time. The medical expert instructed by the accident at work solicitors advised that a full and complete recovery from pain would be within 2 – 3 years.
Accident at work solicitors obtained compensation for £15,000 for the work related accident injury alone. 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.
