Back injury caused by disputed accident at work settles for £60,000
The client was involved in an accident at work in which he sustained an injury to his back. This injury meant he was no longer able to carry out heavy manual work. The client had been employed by the firm for over 20 years and was made redundant following the time off he had had due to his injury. The client contacted Digby Brown who took on the case. Attempts to negotiate a settlement with the insurers failed and Digby Brown raised proceedings in the Court of Session. Liability was denied at the outset and remained disputed throughout the proceedings. The matter finally settled for £60,000.
