Foot Injury At Work

Robert was 47 when he sustained a 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 we contacted Robert's employer notifying them of his claim made on the basis that, 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 contacting them.

We were then able to concentrate on assessing the value of Robert's claim, which included obtaining a medical report which 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 his lost earnings from referring over this period of time.

Within twelve months of asking us to help him, Robert's claim was settled for the total sum of £7,000.00 and at no cost to Robert himself and because he claimed before April 2013 he was able to keep all of his compensation. The law has subsequently changed so this might no longer be the case.
