Claimant injured as a result of a collapsing table in the work place.
I represented the Claimant who was employed as a chef. He was working in a kitchen when a table holding kitchen machinery collapsed onto the Claimant forcing him into holding the table steady to avoid further injury of the machinery falling on top of him. Another member of staff rescued him.
Liability was admitted by the Defendant due to the unsafe place of work and unsafe equipment provided to the Claimant, but causation and quantum remained in dispute. Proceedings were therefore issued. The Claimant suffered physical and psychological injuries and various medical investigations were required to ensure that all aspects of the injuries were dealt with appropriately.
The case settled prior to the listings appointment by way of a Part 36 offer made by the Defendant.
The claim settled for £45,000.00 and consisted of compensation for injuries sustained, past treatment, loss of earnings, travelling expenses and care and assistance.
