Workplace accident claim injury example:
Accident at work claim, worker injured due to falling off a step at the entrance of the workplace, due to a badly lit stairwell. A compensation claim by the accident solicitors who acted on behalf of an employee obtained £2000. Injures sustained a torn ligament in her leg.
The accident at work claim was made when a worker finished work and was going home. The worker tripped and fell off a step that she did not see as the entrance area was dark due to a reported broken light.
The injured worker sustained a torn ligament in her leg and suffered with severe pain. Luckily another work colleague saw the injured worker and took her to accident and emergency hospital to see if there was any permanent damage caused.
The consultant explained to the injured worker that she had torn a ligament in her right leg and advised the injured worker to rest. The injured worker was off work for a period of 2 weeks and returned to her pre-accidental level of work 3 weeks after the workplace accident had happened.
The employers had replaced the light bulb and maintained a system of reporting by all employees of all faults and hazards in the workplace to prevent similar accidents at work.
Accident at work solicitors obtained compensation for £2000 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.
