Compensation following an industrial injury

Has your employer failed in their duty to comply with health and safety regulations? Are you looking to claim compensation following an industrial injury? If you have been injured in an accident at work, call us now on 0800 197 32 32 and speak to a personal injury solicitor for expert legal advice.

An employer is legally obliged to comply with health and safety regulations to reduce the possibility of workplace accidents. The company or person you work for is also required to provide appropriate safety equipment, protective clothing (if necessary) and a safe system of work with proper training and supervision. If they fail to do so and an accident occurs as a result, then your employer will be liable and you may be entitled to personal injury compensation.

A recent claim for compensation following an industrial injury

Our client, Mrs P, was employed as a Retail Shop Manager and was walking down some stairs at her workplace when she suddenly slipped on the edging strip of the stairs. She fell down four stairs and landed on her right hip. She experienced immediate pain down her right hand side; her hip, arm, hand, neck and leg were painful, and her hip had begun to swell and bruise. Despite reporting the matter to her Area Manager, Mrs P suffered a similar accident later that same month.

Mrs P went to see her GP, who signed her off work for four and a half weeks. She then decided to make a claim and got in touch with us. We sent a letter of claim to the claimant’s employer (the defendant), to inform them of Mrs P's situation and her intent to make a claim. We advised that this letter be passed to their legal representatives to handle the case on the employer's behalf.

We got hold of a copy of Mrs P's GP notes, and organised for Mrs P to visit an independent medical expert who could provide an independent medical report that discussed Mrs P's injury and prognosis. Mrs P also required an MRI scan, which we arranged.

During this time, the defendant's representatives said that responsibility for the stairway in which the incidents occured lay with the landlord of the premises and not themselves. But both the landlord and the defendant denied liability for Mrs P's accident, so we were therefore forced to seek further assistance from a barrister, and issue court proceedings.

After considerable negotiations, we were able to secure Mrs P a compensation award of £3,000, which she was delighted to accept.
