The specialist Personal Injury team at Irwin Mitchell Solicitors has successfully secured compensation for an office worker following an accident at work.
Our client Sarah was leaving the office after a day at work when she fell and severely injured herself. The fall was caused when Sarah’s shoe caught in a gap where two pieces of carpet were supposed to join.
Sarah was treated for a closed head injury, a broken collar bone and wrist and later underwent a course of physiotherapy for the continued pain in her wrist and shoulder.
Sarah was unable to carry out simple household chores without assistance and was also unable to drive for many months.
Sarah instructed Irwin Mitchell Solicitors to investigate her claim of compensation against her employers. Sarah’s employers admitted primary liability and she was awarded £11,000 in compensation for her injuries and for the care and assistance she had needed following the accident.
