Accident at work for restaurant employee
Our client was injured when lifting a 50kg vat of milk in the course of his employment in a restaurant
A hoist designed to mechanically lift the vat was in a state of disrepair but our client had received no heavy lifting training or assistance.
Work injuries meant he had to give up his job after accident
Because of the muscular damage in his back and his ongoing pain, our client was forced to leave his job, which he had held for a number of years.
Work accident claim for compensation
Our client came to Digby Brown's personal injury lawyers for help with making a work accident claim for compensation.
Employer denies responsibiliy for work accident
His employers consistently denied liability for his accident, despite other employee’s confirming both the broken equipment and lack of training.

With liability denied, Digby Brown, though our Compensate no win no fee funding package, commissioned expert medical reports, raised court proceedings and instructed Counsel, finally producing an offer of compensation from the defender’s insurers.
