Claimant suffered injuries to his right knee and right big toe whilst working as a Crib Attendant at an Engineering Company when a cabinet collapsed on him.
I represented this Claimant who I had acted for successfully in the past. He was employed as a crib attendant – responsible form regrinding drills for his engineering company employers. When placing a regrinded drill bit into the cabinet in his workplace, the draws collapsed and the cabinet fell over onto him.
The Claimant was medically examined and diagnosed as having suffered a soft tissue injury to his right big toe and right knee. The injury to the toe resolved within one month of the accident, with the majority of the injury to the knee also resolving within one month but leaving some residual numbness in the knee.
The Claimant was paid in full by his employers during his short period of absence. During settlement negotiations, the Defendant Employers Insurers admitted fault for the accident but repeatedly made low offers of settlement. When I prepared to escalate this matter to Court proceedings, settlement was finally achieved in the sum of £6,330.00.
