Our client was working on a mobile crusher and had to remove any objects that would not go through the jaws of the machine. He saw a large piece of metal and went to stop the machine but a piece of metal flew out of the machine and struck him on the side of his head.
He suffered a fractured skull and contusion to the brain and required surgery to elevate the fracture and tidy the wound.
The case was settled by Sally Rissbrook of Irwin Mitchell's specialist Accidents at Work Team who deal with all types of industrial accidents including defective equipment injuries, falls from height and head/spinal injuries.
Our client received £20,000 in compensation.
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious head or brain injury as the result of an accident, our specialist serious injury solicitors could help you claim compensation. See our Brain & Head Injury Compensation Claims page for more information.
