Successful compensation claim made by forestry worker's wife
When it comes to making a compensation claim after being involved in a non-fault accident at work, you might feel reluctant because you don't want to have to pay out any money towards legal costs or cause any bad feeling.
However, you should remember that if you have sustained workplace injuries you are entitled to claim for pain, suffering and distress, lost earnings and any medical expenses that you have had to fork out for. You should also remember that neither we nor any of the personal injury solicitors that we are associated with will charge you a penny at any time, no matter what the outcome of your case.
A fatal accident claim
In June 2003 we heard from the wife of a 36-year-old forestry worker from Derbyshire who was killed by a falling tree in an accident at work.
She told us how he was felling trees in a local country park when the accident occurred. It was a particularly blustery day and the man and his colleague were taking it in turns to climb up the trees while harnessed in order to carry out the large tree-felling job.
It was her husband's turn to be grounded when a large branch unexpectedly came loose and fell heavily towards him. His colleague tried to warn him but his voice was carried away by the wind and by the time he had his attention the large branch had descended upon him.
Doctors believed that the man wouldn't have felt a thing and that the impact from the branch would have caused a serious head injury, knocked him unconscious and crushed his chest, killing him almost instantly.
The man left behind a wife and 3 children who were all dependent on his income. His wife knew that times would be hard and after seeking legal advice realised that she may be entitled to make a claim for the fatal accident.
She contacted us four months after the tragic accident at work and we appointed her a personal injury solicitor in the Derbyshire area. The solicitor talked her through each stage of the claim in a clear and confidential manner and was on hand throughout to offer free legal advice throughout the claims process and she ended up receiving £210,000 in damages.
