Dangerous pipe causes leg injury at work
Digby Brown received instructions in this work injury case two weeks prior to time-bar. After this time, our client, Mr D, would have lost his right to claim compensation for his work injuries.
Our lawyers quickly raised the case in court to protect our client's rights to compensation.
Employers argue client should have known better
Mr D. was employed as an engineer and suffered from a leg injury when he put his leg up to try and halt the progress of a moving two ton pipe.
Liability for the accident was denied by his employers insurer's and they argued that our client should not have undertaken such a course of action.
Digby Brown lawyers successful with work injury claim
Nevertheless, although Mr D's employers refused to accept liability, our lawyers recovered damages of £7,500.
They pursued the case under Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998, the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992, the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998, the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 and the Work at Height Regulations 2005.
