Brian's Accident at Work Settles for £9,000 (Belfast)

Brian's Accident at Work Settles for £9,000 (Belfast)

Brian was working as a heavy goods vehicle driver (HGV) when the company he worked for introduced new battery forklifts. Brian was provided with little or no training in the use of the new piece of equipment yet was still expected to operate one for the purposes of unloading and loading his lorry. The HGV driver was using a forklift on the back of a trailer, specifically on the tail lift, the platform the raises and lowers to assist in the loading or unloading of goods. Unknown to him, the forklift came in different sizes and the one he was using at the time was too big for the tail lift.   

The forklift slipped

As a consequence of the size of the forklift, its rear wheels slipped of the edge of the tail lift causing Brian’s foot to become trapped under one of the forks. As a result Brian suffered a crush injury to the foot as determined from an MRI scan.

Brian contacted Paschal O’Hare Solicitors

We took on Brian’s case and sent a letter of claim to his employer who accepted liability for the accident. We had our new client examined by a consultant orthopaedic surgeon and a consultant radiologist. Armed with the medical reports provided by these medical experts we entered negotiations with the employer. After a short while, we settled Brian’s case in the sum of £9,000.
