Serious hand injury for Southampton based Delivery Driver due to Employer providing defective works van

We took over this matter from another Firm because the client was not happy with the progress being made.

Our client fell and sustained serious injury to his right hand when he was getting into the rear of the van provided by his employer. His right foot caught under a seal which had become loose around the back doors of the vehicle causing him to fall forwards landing with his right hand underneath him. In addition to the hand injury, the long term implications of the injury and the possible impact upon future work prospects caused our client psychological injuries. Court Proceedings were issued against the Defendant on the basis of their negligence and breach of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 in supplying a defective vehicle.

Fortunately our experienced personal injury team were able to negotiate a settlement before the matter went to Trial and the client was very happy to receive compensation exceeding £45,000
