Our client was involved in an accident at work in March 2008, whilst he was employed as a Service Adviser at Mitsubishi Motor Company.
He was walking down the centre of the workshop in order to open the shutter at the front of the workshop to bring cars in. Whilst walking, his foot hit an unsecured grate causing him to fall forward hitting the right side of his head on a car, coming heavily down on his side and he was knocked out for a few seconds.
As a result of this accident, the man suffered a sprained elbow, shoulder and wrist and his arm which was put in a sling, making driving problematic and our client was also forced to take time off work.
His injuries also meant that he was required to undergo physiotherapy for his elbow and took painkilling and anti-inflammatory medication.
Kerry Hadley from Irwin Mitchell's Sheffield office, who specialises in industrial accident claims, represented the client, recovering £27,000 in an out of Court settlement in compensation for the pain and suffering caused by the injury sustained, plus loss of earnings through not being able to work.
