Claimant suffered an accident at work whilst moving a juice cage from a lorry to a Chiller Cabinet causing him an injury to his left knee.
I represented my Client who was employed as a general assistant with a major national supermarket, who suffered bruising and grazing to his left knee as a result of moving a cage of orange juice from a lorry into the store, which caught on a divot on the ground and caused it to fall upon him.
My Client was medically examined and diagnosed with having suffered a soft tissue injury to his left knee which lasted for two months after the accident.
The Defendants denied fault for the accident and refused to consider offers of settlement. County Court proceedings were issued and when the Court listed this matter for trial during the summer, the Defendant’s Solicitors finally made a reasonable offer of settlement in the sum of £1,500.00, which concluded the matter.
