Our specialist spinal injury team in Sheffield assisted a former warehouse operative in securing a £1.2m damages settlement following an accident in 2005 at his place of work, which lead to him suffering incomplete paraplegia. Barry, 60, was left with severely reduced mobility when a lift-truck which he was operating at his place of work in Boston plummeted to the ground, fracturing his spine.
The Sheffield team secured an early admission of liability from his employer and a substantial interim payment enabling Barry and his wife to move into a fully adapted new bungalow within 18 months of the accident.
Neil Whiteley, who represented Barry along with his colleague Rachael Aram, stated "by bringing in our client liaison team at an early stage, and later a specialist spinal injury case manager, we were able to assist Barry and his wife through what was undoubtedly a very difficult time, just when they were beginning to look forward towards their retirement. Both have done fantastically well, and it has been a pleasure to work for Barry to achieve this result".
