Factory worker gets £2k payout with the help of PHC Law

Fri, 13 Apr 2012 11:58:25 EST

A Polish migrant worker has been compensated after injuring his hand in a potato slicing machine at work.
 
The accident took place on December 10, 2010, while the man was operating a machine designed to shape potatoes for the catering industry. His role involved placing potatoes in the machine so they could be correctly cut, and then removing them. However, the machine became clogged with potato and then jammed, as it had done on numerous occasions.
 
The worker attempted to clear out the machine but it moved, trapping and injuring his hand. The man's employer denied responsibility, but he decided to call on the services of personal injury solicitors PHC Law to find out if it was possible to claim compensation. Once the case came to court the worker was offered £2,270 by way of compensation.
 
Mr John Cooper, a senior consultant solicitor at PHC Law said: "This man was performing the same role as he had done many times before when the accident happened. And despite his employer refusing to accept responsibility, the company backed down and offered a financial settlement once PHC Law got involved and helped the man to take his case to court.
 
"This is yet another example of why it is vital that people who have suffered an accident at work should make sure they get in touch with a professional personal injury specialist. This man deserved to be compensated financially following the injuries he sustained and the team at PHC Law were pleased to be able to use their expertise to make sure this happened."
 
Mr Cuerden, Managing Director of PHC Law added: "We'd urge anyone who has had an accident and sustained an injury in the last three years to contact to discover if they too could make a claim."
