Our client was working in a large store as a cleaner and was struck by a falling Shelf Unit which was unsafe. She sustained injuries to her right thigh, which caused pain and discomfort for 6 weeks following the accident and we were able to recover personal injury compensation for her of £2,340.
A brief summary of events is set out below.
Date of Accident: March 2014
Time between formal instruction and successful conclusion: 4 months
How the claim proceeded: This was a fairly straightforward case and once we had obtained a medical report and gathered details of our client’s financial losses, we made an offer to settle the case. The employer’s insurers accepted liability for the claim within a relatively short space of time and an agreement was reached in July 2014.
Were Court proceedings necessary?: No
Outcome: The client secured £2,000 for her injuries and £340 for her financial losses, including loss of earnings.
Comment: Like most accidents, it could have been avoided if there had been a better health and safety regime in place. In this case, the store were aware of the problem with the shelf unit from a previous incident, but took no steps to ensure it was safe.
