Man receives 3K in compensation after suffering an injury at work 

Settlement figure: £3,000 

Lawyer assigned to the case: Simon Noske  

Our client was at work and caught his lower leg on a sharp pole that was protruding from a cart. The cart should not have been in the area that he was walking in. As a result of the accident, our client sustained a laceration to the lower leg which left a 3cm permanent scar.  

The case was handled by Litigation Executive, Simon Noske. Reflecting on the claim, Simon said:  

“Initially an offer was made of £2,000, which the client did want to accept. However, I advised him to reject this, and we obtained an increase to £3,000.” 

Following on from this, our client said Simon was very informative throughout the claim.

Our client, a call centre operative, was returning to work after her lunch break finished. As our client crossed the road at a crossing, our client tripped because of a pothole. At the time of the accident, our client was in early stages of her pregnancy. Luckily, the way she fell protected her unborn baby.  

 As a result of the accident, our client sustained the following injuries; 

  • Broken talus bone in her right foot  
  • Grazes to both knees and elbows 

The case was handled by Litigation Executive, Justine Murtagh. Reflecting on the claim, she said:
