Accident at work, caused by lack of training, leaves client with knee injuries
Mr J., a young man who had just started a job with a firm manufacturing bin and recycling lorries, suffered knee injuries when the mechanical lifting crane he was operated failed, causing a heavy piece of metal to fall on him.
Employer responsible for accident at work
He had received no proper training since starting the job.
As it happened, during his probationary period, he returned to work against medical advice in the hope of keeping his role but was released by the company just weeks later.
Employer ignore accident at work claim against them
With his former employers unwilling to engage in the legal process, or even acknowledge receipt of correspondence, our solicitors raised a court action on our client’s behalf.
In the end, we secured a four-figure settlement in compensation for his injuries.
