Mr Watson

We were instructed by Mr Watson, from Shotton Colliery, following an accident at work. Mr Watson sustained an injury when a cooker hood he was changing fell from its housing and landed heavily on his thumb, causing a deep cut. He was not wearing any protective gloves at the time.

Mr Watson was taken by ambulance to hospital. The wound healed over six weeks, but Mr Watson then developed a tightness over the scar, which required an operation some seven months after the accident.

Medical evidence was obtained which showed that Mr Watson had a limited range of thumb movement and pinch grip. He also experienced numbness around the scar, which turned pink and uncomfortable in cold weather.

The expert expected the numbness and cold intolerance to improve over the next one to two years. He also considered that there was a 50% chance of Mr Watson being required to undergo a further operation within the next two to five years.

Mr Watson’s insurers admitted responsibility for the accident and, after the legal team at Browell Smith & Co obtained the relevant medical evidence, we were able to obtain settlement in excess of £19,000.
