PHC Law helps worker receive £100,000 following serious injury at work

Wed, 4 Apr 2012 11:53:11 EST

A man who fell out of the back of a lorry and sustained a serious injury has received a £100,000 settlement.
 
The worker was being helped to load his lorry by a forklift truck driver who then left the area, before lowering the retractable steps at the rear of the vehicle. Without the steps the man had no safe way of getting to the ground and ended up falling off the back of the lorry. He sustained serious injuries to his right knee including damage to the tibia and the fibula.
 
The man called on Preston-based personal injury solicitors PHC Law to take on the case, which was accepted by senior consultant solicitor Mr John Cooper.
 
Mr Cooper said: "This was a particularly serious incident. While the man returned to his job, as a result of the injuries he sustained in the accident at work, he was unable to complete his normal duties without the assistance of a helper.
 
Orthopaedic evidence was obtained by both parties, and doctors agreed that this was a serious injury. Following proposals and counter proposals, the claim was settled at the total sum of £100,000.
Mr.Cuerden, Managing Director of PHC Law said: "We were happy with the outcome of this case, which should serve as a reminder to anyone that has sustained an injury at work, that they could well be entitled to compensation and damages. We'd urge anyone in this situation to get in touch so they can discuss their case with a specialist solicitor."
