Cardboard Trips Up Work Accident Victim

We acted for a 47 year old gentleman by the name of Robert, who sustained a rather nasty injury at work when he slipped on a piece of cardboard which had been placed over some spilt oil that had leaked from a nearby machine. Robert did not know of the leaked oil and as a result of the slip he fell to the floor, striking his head on the machine as he did so.

As a result of his fall, Robert suffered a significant cut to his forehead, which required twelve stitches. He was left with some permanent scarring.

Within two months of the accident taking place a Letter of Claim had been sent to Robert's opponent and within that Letter of Claim we alleged, amongst other things, that they had failed to keep the walkway in question free from substances that were likely to cause Robert or, indeed, any other pedestrian to slip.

Not surprisingly, we received a full admission of liability from Robert's opponent within six weeks of the Letter of Claim being sent. Thereafter, we obtained a medical report from our medical expert, who confirmed that the scarring in question was “easily visible” and that there would be no further improvement.

Robert was and remains very active in the local community, especially in refereeing amateur football league matches. As a result of his accident, he was unable to engage in his refereeing for several months and we were able to recover from the employers insurer the money lost by Robert as a result of not being able to act as a referee over this period.

Within twelve months of the Letter of Claim being sent, Robert's claim was settled for the total sum of £7,000.00 and at no cost to Robert himself.
