The Injury Lawyers help factory worker settle accident at work claim for £9,000.00

workplace hand injury claims

The Injury Lawyers have successfully settled a factory worker’s claim in the sum of £9,000.00 after suffering an accident at work.

Our client was attempting to move a metal bail on a forklift truck which was attached to another one. In trying to separate the bails, one fell and crushed a hand, leading to fractures in the fingers. In this instance, safety gloves did very little to protect our client from suffering an injury in the workplace.

Our client had to have a few weeks off work as a result of the injuries suffered. On top of this, given the injury was to the hand, our client suffered a lot of restrictions in their day-to-day activities.

With injuries like this, corrective surgery can help to ensure there are no future problems. Stiffness in the joints is common, as is a loss of grip strength that can often be resolved through physiotherapy which we can arrange on a private basis.

Many people rely on the care and assistance of a partner or other relative / friend with all sorts of things like bathing and personal care, getting dressed, household work, and travel to and from medical appointments. We can claim back an hourly rate for what is known as “gratuitous care and assistance” and hand injuries commonly lead to this kind of claim being made.

A full recovery made

We’re happy to confirm our client made full recovery from the injuries suffered and regained full function of the injured hand. We were able to claim for the pain, suffering, and loss of amenity, as well as reasonable losses like lost earnings and care and assistance claims.

The claim was settled for £9,000.00 without the need to go to Court.

The importance of claiming for workplace compensation

Injured employees are often reluctant to make a claim against their employer, but it’s important to remember that employers have a legal obligation to make sure you are provided with a safe working environment that’s relative to the nature of the job.

Employers need to ensure that appropriate equipment and training is provided to allow employees to work safely.

Employers should also have insurance to protect their employees in case something goes wrong. You don’t have to treat making a workplace claim as something “personal” – you’re just claiming from the insurance that’s there to cover you.

Legally speaking, your employer shouldn’t do anything to affect you continuing to work there if you do end up injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault. We often find that many employers are quite happy for people to claim from their insurance too. That’s what it’s there for!
