Accident at work costs our client a nail and the tip of a finger

Accident at work costs an employee a nail and the tip of one finger

Worker makes a personal injury claim after an accident at work which was not his fault.

Accident Circumstances: Our client was employed in an engineering factory and was working on a machine on which he had not received any training in it’s use. Whilst in the process of working the machine, our client’s finger was crushed by the machine causing our client to suffer a personal injury.

Our client’s injuries: Lost nail and tip of right index finger.Open fracture to the distal phalanx.

What did Hayward Baker Solicitors do to help: One of our personal injury specialists Alison Spriggs who is a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives took on the case on a no-win-no-fee basis and sent a letter of claim to the defendant blaming them for the accident because failed in their  duty to take reasonable care of the safety of our client in the course of their employment.  The employers did not provide our client with requisite health and safety training or training in the use of a particular piece of machinery on which our client suffered injury.

Our client’s employer  admitted  liability for the accident.

We arranged a medical appointment for our client to be examined by a medical expert who would formulate a report upon his injuries. It is this report that would be used to prove our client’s injuries and value the claim for injury compensation (Damages). The first medical expert recommended a report should be sought from an orthopaedic Consultant so we arranged this for our client.

We arranged several sessions of physiotherapy to desensitise our client’s finger.

We claimed for our client’s out of pocket expenses (Special Damages) which included his loss of earnings for the three months he was off work, travel expenses  for the journeys to and from medical appointments, physiotherapy treatment, car and assistance and pain killers.

We also negotiated a settlement figure with the defendant insurers.

Resolution: Our client was awarded £5,000.00
