The specialist Personal Injury team at Irwin Mitchell Solicitors has successfully secured compensation for a hospital worker following an accident at work.
Our client Amy, was on the way to the locker room to change into her uniform before starting her shift at work. As she entered the room, it was in darkness so she switched the light on before taking a step down into the room. As she took a step, Amy slipped on a large amount of water that had spilt on the floor and fell backwards injuring herself. The leak had come from a broken pipe.
The fall caused Amy to suffer an injury to her lower back and left wrist, she was prescribed bed rest and pain killers but later needed a course of physiotherapy to help with her injuries.
Amy instructed Irwin Mitchell Solicitors to investigate her claim of compensation on her behalf. Liability was admitted and £11,000 was awarded to Amy to compensate for her injuries, medical expenses and for the care and assistance she had needed following the accident.
If you've been injured as a result of a slip or trip at work, our personal injury claims team could help you secure compensation. See our Workplace Slip & Trip Claims page for more information.
