Case study: workplace injury claim

We were instructed by Mr Wilson, from North Shields, in March 2013, after he developed pains in his neck, arm and between his shoulder blades as a result of heavy unloading and twisting in the course of his employment.

After undertaking extensive enquires with Mr Wilson in relation to the nature of his work and development of his conditions, we submitted a claim against his employers on the basis that they had failed to devise a safe system of work or to carry out a sufficient risk assessments in relation to Mr. Wilson’s job.

The insurers representing Mr Wilson’s employers admitted they had been in breach of their duties as an employee, subject to us being able to establish Mr Wilson’s condition has been caused or exacerbated due to the working practices.

Our legal team instructed an appropriate medical expert who concluded that the majority of Mr Wilson’s symptoms were due to his employment. In addition, our argument was that Mr Wilson had to leave his employment due to his condition and, as a result, had suffered financially from being out of work.

Our arguments were successful and we were able to procure a settlement for Mr Wilson of £10,000 for his injuries and financial losses.
