£6,000 compensation for Atherton man who wrenched his knee at work
Workplace accident claim specialists Carrs Solicitors have recently won £6,000 compensation for a knee injury sustained by Mr. A Harper, a Professional HGV driver from Atherton in Manchester, acting under a No Win No Fee agreement.
Mr. Harper suffered a wrenching injury to his knee when he slipped due to poor housekeeping at a site he had to visit in the course of his work. Because his knee injury meant that he was unable to drive his HGV for a time, he experienced loss of earnings as well as additional pain and suffering from an injury which would not have occurred had proper safety procedures been followed on the site where he slipped and fell.
The insurers repeatedly denied liability for the workplace accident claim. Carrs Solicitors took the claim to court where the defendants were ordered to disclose previously withheld records. As a specialist work accident claims firm Carrs Solicitors were alive to key Health & Safety Law issues enabling them to secure the best witness statements, expert evidence and settlement terms.
After winning his case, Mr Harper said “The advice and help I received from Carrs Solicitors throughout my claim was second to none.”
According to the Health and Safety Executive, 28,267 major injuries in the workplace occurred in 2006/2007 of which over 1/3 were caused by slipping and tripping. In the same survey, 83% of employers reported that their workers could be exposed to slips and trips in the workplace (http://www.hse.gov.uk/statistics/overall/hssh0607.pdf). Reporting a workplace injury can help highlight health and safety issues which will make the workplace safer for all employees and reduce the numbers of accidents at work.
