Our specialist Personal Injury Team recently won a claim for a client who sustained a severe back injury at work resulting in a compensation pay out in the tens of thousands pounds.

Our client was employed as a warehouse operative, and during the course of his work he was required to lift boxes which were in excess of the recommended safe lifting weight for individuals.  Other colleagues had injured their backs previously carrying out the same job, and the employers were aware of the risks of physical injury from this manual handling task however, sufficient improvements were not made nor was sufficient mechanical or colleague assistance provided, and as a consequence our client sustained a compression nerve injury to his spine.

The claim was denied by insurers for our client’s employer, for a long time, and then subsequently denied again by solicitors for the employer, once Court proceedings had been commenced against them.  However, after a long, hard fought battle they accepted responsibility on the basis that we were able to negotiate a successful compensation settlement for our client.

As experts in accidents at work, and in particular lifting and manual handling claims, this excellent result was testament to the experience and teamwork applied to this case.  If you have had an accident or injury at work, and are wondering whether or not you are entitled to injury at work compensation, please call us on 01522 561020 or complete a free online chat via our website at www.ringroselaw.co.uk
