A West Bromwich welder has received compensation for severe injuries sustained from an accident at work in August 2011.
A metal part weighing over 50kg fell on to our client’s finger during the process of installing a stainless steel mixer at work, completely crushing it.
Thankfully, the team at Sandwell Hospital saved the client’s finger and amputation was not required. However, scarring remained for at least six months following the accident, not to mention severe pain, which greatly affected the quality of our client’s personal and professional life.
Louise Scott, Personal Injury specialist based in our Birmingham offices, worked on the case and secured a four-figure sum for the client within twelve months of instruction.
Louise commented: “It’s been a difficult six months for our client...it’s unfair he had to go through what he did all because his employers failed to devise and implement proper safety regulations when moving metal parts. I hope that this case serves as a warning to our client’s employers but also other employers out there, that safety in the workplace cannot be overlooked and the necessary guidelines must be put in place to avoid this happening again”.
If you've suffered a serious broken or fractured bone injury at work, our specialist serious injury solicitors could help you to claim compensation. See our Broken Bone Or Fracture Claims page or Workplace Accident Claims page for more information.
