Six-Figure Settlement For Worker Hit By Heavy Goods Vehicle

Our Serious Injury team helped secure a six-figure sum for a man who was ran over by a heavy goods vehicle at work.

Simon, from Barnsley, was working in a foundry when he was hit by the vehicle. He suffered an open fracture to his leg which required multiple surgical procedures. He also had soft tissue injuries to his foot and shoulder as well as psychological issues.

Thanks to expert medical treatment and physiotherapy, Simon was able to return to full time work, albeit on slightly different duties.

Lisa Fairclough, a specialist personal injury lawyer, reached an out of court settlement of £250,000 for Simon.

Commenting on the case, Lisa said: “Whilst Simon has had a good recovery from his injuries, he will be affected to some extent for the rest of his life. It’s important for large sites to be vigilant in training for their drivers to help prevent accidents in the future.”
