Facial Injury causing scarring for Groundworker

Our client was working on site in Cropwell Bishop, Nottinghamshire. He was standing approximately three metres from a manhole while fellow employees were pulling a mains cable through the manhole using a piece of rope attached to a dumper truck. As the cable was being pulled, the rope snapped and pinged back catching a piece of metal on the ground causing it to catapult through the air and into our client’s face. A successful claim was brought by our personal injury team on the basis the Defendant employer failed to adequately assess the risk of the task, failed to provide proper training and instruction, and failed to provide appropriate equipment. A negotiated settlement of £18,500.00 for personal injuries and financial losses was achieved before Court proceedings became necessary.
