Delivery driver suffers back injury following accident at work
The worker suffered an accident at work during his employment as a delivery driver. Whilst pulling milk cages from the back of a lorry, the wheels of one of the cages caught on a pallet causing the cage to topple. The employee instinctively attempted to stop the cage falling and in doing so suffered a back injury. Medical evidence was obtained from a Consultant Orthopaedic & Upper Limb Surgeon who reported that on examination, some 20 months post accident there was some minimal loss of full range of movement following the accident at work.
The worker pursued a claim for personal injury against his employers alleging that they were negligent and in breach of their statutory duties to provide sufficient training. He insutrcted a specalist personal injury solicitor who got an admission of liability from the third party. They settled the claim for £7,000 and the employee returned to work following the settlement of the claim.
