The circumstances of the accident are as follows. At all relevant times, our client was employed by the defendant through a recruitment agency. On or around the above date the Claimant was working in a room within the defendant premises. The Claimant was using a ladder and was approximately two and a half metres above ground level stripping what is known as the ‘scrubber’ machine. As our client was working, the ladder slipped causing him to fall from height to the ground and sustain an injury.
Our client’s injuries
Injury to forehead, face, upper body and left arm.
How Hayward Baker Helped
One of our specialist personal injury lawyers Gary Lee took on this accident in the work place claim.
The defendant insurers initially denied liability for the accident but but due to Gary’s skill and experience in such matters the defendant insurers ultimately conceded. However Gary still had to provide evidence to prove that our client’s injuries were as a result of the material accident. It was through Gary’s hard work and diligence that our client received a favourable outcome to his claim even though Court proceedings were issued and the matter was going to go to Trial.
Gary negotiated a settlement figure of £23,500.00
