Dimuna acted for a Unite member who worked as a piling operative, and developed (HAVS) after using vibrating tools at work, including jack hammers, disc cutters and angle grinders, for several hours at a time. The defendant denied liability and court proceedings were issued, but the case settled before going to trial.
“It gives me great pleasure to be able to say that this process has come to a conclusion! I have received the cheque for full & final settlement of my claim that you have successfully secured for me. Whilst the financial element of the claim is satisfying to receive, I take more comfort from knowing I no longer have to relive that awful accident, to disclose personal information & to undertake any further medical intervention by strangers. I’d like to send my heartfelt thanks to you for everything that you have done to assist me during this process. The sympathy & empathy that you have shown me whilst I have had to disclose personal & intimate information was much appreciated. There were times when I wanted to stop the process as I found it difficult to share such personal matters, however your kind & considerate approach enabled me to stay strong & focused, and to engage in the steps needed to be taken to reach the successful conclusion of my case. Should I ever find myself in a position whereby I need legal support for a workplace matter, I would absolutely have no hesitation in seeking you out to assist me. It has been an absolute pleasure having your expertise and support during the past few years, and I shall be eternally grateful for such. I truly wish you all the very best for your future,” – a Unite member.
