Irwin Mitchell has recently acted on behalf a school girl who was injured during a lesson.
The circumstances of the accident are that during our client’s normal attendance at her comprehensive school she was participating in a Technology Lesson.
During the course of this lesson the claimant was required to change a drill bit but as she placed the chuck key into the drill her hand slipped and restarted the drill, the chuck key flew out of position and struck the Claimant in the rear of the hand, subsequently she sustained a soft tissue injury to her right hand resulting in 3 sutures and a significant scar which will remain.
Irwin Mitchell acted on behalf of the girl. The case settled at infant approval in the sum of £2000.00
