A man has received £3,000 compensation after he was injured in an accident at work.
Our client is employed as a welder and was in the process of moving a heavy metal pipe with an overheard crane. The pipe weighed approximately 2 tonnes and as our client was moving the pipe the crane began to stop causing the pipe to sway.
He put out his hand to stop the sway and his thumb became trapped between the pipe and another piece of machinery as the warehouse was cluttered. He suffered a nasty crush injury to his thumb requiring a metal brace and 4 weeks away from work.
The claim was settled against the employer by Lynne Parker of Irwin Mitchell's specialist Work Accident Team.
She said, "My client's painful injuries could have been avoided had there been properly planned traffic routes to allow him to manoeuvre the pipe in a safe manner."
