A 25 year old man receives £40,000 in personal injury compensation as a result of not being provided with protective clothing at work in a railway station.
The man was assisting some joiners working on the lift shafts on the underground car park. In the process of removing the metal shutters the man used an S wing hammer and in doing so pieces of metal sheared off from the screw and flew into his eye. The man was not provided with any protective clothing or goggles.
He underwent two ophthalmic operations as a result of the accident. He now suffers from regular headaches, eyestrain and uncomfortable vision which he did not suffer prior to the accident.
After a 2 year battle, the man was rewarded £40,000 in compensation.
