Work Accident Claim Injury

Hairline Wrist Fracture

Jeremy was involved in a slipping accident at work. At the time of Jeremy's accident he was carrying a large box of motor parts from the warehouse floor to the 1st floor of his employer's premises. Jeremy did not have anyone to help him in performing this task and, in addition, he was unable to see over the top of the box due to its size.

Just as Jeremy had nearly reached the top of the steps, he slipped on some oil and fell backwards to the bottom of the steps, landing on his right arm.

Jeremy's accident was witnessed by one of his fellow workers and an entry was put in the accident record book. Jeremy was taken to hospital complaining of severe pain in his right wrist. After examination and X-ray at the local Accident and Emergency department a hairline fracture of his right wrist was diagnosed and a plaster cast applied.

Jeremy asked Glynns to help him claim compensation for his work accident claim a couple of months after the accident had taken place. We contacted Jeremy's employer and shortly after doing so their insurance company admitted responsibility for the accident.

Due to the nature of the injury sustained (i.e. a fracture) we waited 12 months to obtain medical evidence as this allowed the orthopaedic surgeon to consider any potential complications such as osteoarthritis.

At the time Jeremy went to see the orthopaedic surgeon his symptoms had greatly improved and the intermittent discomfort that Jeremy continued to experience on occasion in his wrist would, in the expert's opinion, fully resolve spontaneously and within a short space of time.

Jeremy's claim for compensation in respect of his injuries settled for £4,000.00.
