Successful Accident at Work Claims

Below you will find a small selection of the accident at work claims that Sukhdev has dealt with at Thompsons Solicitors.

Fall from height at work

The client in this case was using a ladder to clean and paint a machine at work, but the ladder slipped and he fell several metres to the floor, injuring his leg.

It transpired that he had fractured both the tibia and fibula and had to wear a cast for several weeks, after which he had to use a wheelchair and then a walking frame to get around until the leg healed further.

He eventually returned to work but could only do light duties so the accident also resulted in lost earnings. Sukhdev recovered £35,000 compensation for him, with which he was very pleased.

Crushed finger injury

Sukhdev's client suffered a crush injury to one of his fingers while at work. His employers admitted liability for the accident but were only willing to offer a small sum by way of compensation.

Sukhdev arranged for a report to be drawn up by a hand specialist which outlined the seriousness of the injury and the impact it would have on the injured man and his future employment prospects. Sukhdev managed to increase the offer to £16,000 which was more than three times the sum offered initially.

Serious hand injury at work

After suffering a serious injury to his hand at work, the insurers of the man’s employers immediately contacted him and offered to settle the claim before he had even spoken to a solicitor.

He then contacted Thompsons and Sukhdev dealt with his case. With her help, he recovered over £30,000 which was almost a third more than he was offered to begin with.
