Accident at work claim: Jacqui’s client was operating a packaging machine at work when it collapsed onto his hand. The accident led to the man having three of his fingers partially amputated. He had to spend a year off work recovering and the type of manual work he could undertake was permanently limited. Following an instruction from the man’s trade union to Thompsons to initiate proceedings for a serious injury claim, Jacqui secured a substantial compensation package for her client. The compensation covered his lost earnings as well as the cost of a private prosthesis and an automatic car.
Accident at work claim: After falling from a ladder at work, Jacqui’s client suffered a life-changing brain injury that meant he could not return to work. The employer required Jacqui’s client to use the ladder to access a roof while carrying equipment and had not erected a scaffold. The ladder was also found to be in a substandard state and had not been secured. The defendant adamantly denied liability, however Jacqui secured compensation for her client after initiating court proceedings.
