Mickey* was working on a production line in a factory dealing with steel bars. He was relatively new to the job. One morning a steel roller crushed the middle finger of Mickey’s left hand. He was in immediate pain and was rushed to hospital.
Mickey came to Truth Legal seeking compensation for his injury. The factory’s insurers denied liability for the accident saying their equipment and processes were not at fault. But the personal injury team at Truth Legal persisted, showing that the factory’s safety equipment and procedures were not as good as they should have been; and went on to obtain medical evidence from a consultant orthopaedic surgeon specialising in hand injuries.
Tim and the personal injury team at Truth Legal were able to obtain a settlement of £16,000 for Mickey covering his injury and the loss of income he had suffered and other financial expenses. Mickey has since started a new career in the aviation industry.
If you have suffered an accident at work and you think your employer may have been at fault, Truth Legal may be able to help you recover compensation.
