Our client was employed as a Telescopic Vehicle Handler by the Defendant at a site in Selby, North Yorkshire.
As our client exited his machine and was walking across the site to secure his next load, his right ankle twisted and fractured as a result of cobbles moving beneath his foot. An investigation showed the cobbles were not compacted and therefore as secure as they should have been. The Defendant’s insurers accepted liability and conceded that the employer had failed to correctly manage health and safety in the workplace and had not complied with their statutory and common law duties. As a result, they had exposed our client to a foreseeable risk of injury. Our experienced “accident at work” lawyers were able to negotiate a settlement of £10,000 to compensate our grateful client.
