Irwin Mitchell’s specialised accident at work team recently helped a man claim compensation after he was injured at work.
The man was employed as a delivery driver. When he arrived at the delivery site he started to unload a bed from the van, having been provided with a ramp by the home he was delivering to. He transferred the bed from the back of the van to the floor using the ramp, but it suddenly collapsed as he guided the bed down. Our client then fell to the ground because of the ramp's collapse.
As a result of the accident, the man sustained injury to his right (dominant) shoulder, requiring him to undergo physiotherapy.
Following the incident, he contacted Irwin Mitchell’s specialised work accident team and one of our experienced solicitors dealt with the claim. Liability was admitted by the defendant and with our assistance the man received £3,600 in compensation.
