Irwin Mitchell’s specialist accidents at work team have secured compensation for a man who suffered a serious shoulder injury at work.
Our client worked as a forklift truck driver. At the end of his shift he went to the gas station to refuel his truck. The gas station had no lights and as he got off the forklift truck his foot got caught in some discarded strapping which had not been thrown away. He lost his balance and fell over, landing on his shoulder.
As a result of his injury he underwent physiotherapy, painkilling injections and finally surgery to relieve his symptoms and make a recovery.
The specialist personal injury department at Irwin Mitchell’s Sheffield office secured over £30,000 in compensation for our client.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a forklift truck accident, our expert workplace accident claims team could help you to secure compensation. See our Forklift Truck Accident Claims page for more information.
