A recent work accident claim
Our client, Mr E male, aged 32 instructed The Claim Solicitors in connection with a work accident.

Mr E was employed by the defendant as a delivery driver. On the day of the accident, he was required to make a delivery of beverages to a public house owned by the defendant. Whilst making the delivery, he went to open the cellar door and as he lifted the left hand door, it came loose in his hand. It was heavy and he tried to hold onto it to prevent it from falling into the cellar and injuring a person stationed below the door. In the process of doing this, he felt acute pain in his left shoulder and as a result, sustained injury.

Mr E suffered a partial tear of the superior part of the rota cuff but without any separation. He was off work for four weeks and underwent physiotherapy. After a period of time, Mr E got in touch with us, and we sent a letter of claim to his employers, outlining his intention to make a claim. His employers then sent it on to their insurance company, who admitted their responsibility for Mr E's accident. He underwent an operation to repair his injury, however, by this stage we were very close to the deadline where a claim must either be settled or in the court process. This meant that we had to issue protective court proceedings on Mr E's behalf, and with his consent.

We then entered into negotiations with the defendant's legal represntatives, which eventually concluded in him accepting £7,600 in full and final settlement of his claim. Mr E was very pleased with the result as it enabled him to move on and close this particular chapter in his life.
