Mr J had an accident at work in March 2008. He was cutting scrap sections of steel casting when a three foot section that ran off the main bar broke off and fell onto his foot.
He sustained a crush injury to his foot including fractures to two metatarsals and he had to wear a plaster cast to immobilise his foot. He continues to suffer pain but has been able to return to work in a modified role. His walking distance is now restricted.
He was initially off work for 6 months but subsequently had a further absence and part of his compensation related to payment for lost earnings.
It was alleged that Mr J's employer had failed to ensure that the casting had been appropriately restrained to prevent the section falling.
Liability was admitted by Mr J's employers and he received £50,000 in compensation.
