Faulty Chair Injures Office Worker

Irwin Mitchell's specialist Workplace Accident team has assisted an office worker to obtain compensation after he suffered an injury at work.

Mark, an office worker, was injured when a leg of the wheeled swivel chair that we was sitting on at work broke, causing him to fall to the floor.

He suffered a temporary flare up of an existing condition causing symptoms in his neck and shoulder and a soft tissue injury to his lower back. Three months after the accident Mark's symptoms had returned to their pre-accident status.

His employer's insurer accepted liability for the accident and he received £1,400 in compensation for the pain and discomfort, travel expenses to doctors appointments and the cost of medication.

It is hoped that this incident will act as a reminder to employers of the importance of maintaining office equipment.

If you've been injured in an accident at work, our personal injury solicitors could help you make a No Win No Fee compensation claim. See our Accident at Work Claims page for more information.
