Compensation following an industrial injury

Has your employer failed in his duty to comply with health and safety regulations? Are you looking to claim compensation following an industrial injury? If you have been inured in an accident at work, call us now on 0800 197 32 32 and speak to a personal injury solicitor for free legal advice, without obligation.

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

A recent claim for compensation following an industrial injury
The claimant, who is female and aged 29 at the date of the accident in July 2002, was employed as a Retail Shop Manager. On the day of the accident the claimant was walking down some stairs at her place of work when she suddenly slipped on the edging strip of the stairs. She fell down 4 steps and landed on her right hip.

When the claimant got up she experienced immediate pain to her right hip, right arm, right hand, neck and leg and her hip had begun to swell and bruise. The claimant reported the accident to the Area Manager.

In July 2002 the claimant again slipped on the edging strip of the stair and fell down 4 steps and landed twisting her left leg and ankle.

The claimant attended her GP and was signed off work for 4 ½ weeks. The claimant contacted The Claim Solicitors and a no win, no fee agreement was entered into in November 2002.

A Letter of Claim was sent to the claimant’s employer (the defendant) in January 2003.

GP notes were obtained and a medical expert was instructed to prepare a report, as evidence to support the industrial injury claim. An MRI scan was arranged and the expert reported.

In July 2003 the defendant stated that responsibility of the stairway in which the incidents occurred lay with the landlord of the premises who were auctioneers. Following ongoing correspondence, liability was denied by both potential defendants. Documents in support of the denial were sought and were subsequently disclosed.

A barrister was instructed to settle the Particulars of Claim and proceedings were issued in Chelmsford County Court in April 2005. A defence was filed and subsequently a payment into Court of £2,850 was made by the defendant in May 2005. This was increased in June 2005 by a further £150, which the claimant accepted in full and final settlement of her accident at work claim .
