Delivery driver receives compensation after he was injured at work

Settlement figure: £3,235 

Lawyer assigned to the case: Nick Josseph

Our client was working as a delivery driver, when he attempted to load a large fire door into a van with the assistance of colleagues. As they loaded it, the fire door slammed shut on his hand, due to not having a protective plate in position. This resulted in the client sustaining an injury to right middle fingernail, which caused damage, loss of the nail and associated numbness to the fingertip.

The case was handled by Litigation Executive, James Hammond. Reflecting on the claim, he said:  

“It has been a pleasure to represent this client, and I am happy that he has received a result that he is pleased with.” 

Following on from this, our client added:

“I would like to say that I have been very satisfied with the whole process, and each individual at Fletchers I have had contact with. Particularly my case handler, who has been very helpful and informative at a very difficult time for me. Also, the communication has been outstanding throughout. I appreciate all the work and time put in by Fletchers, so thank you for that.”
