Karen's Accident at Work Settles for £6,250 (Belfast)

Karen was working at an Asda store when she was pulling an empty wheeled 6ft high cage designed to assist in the restocking of shelves. She pulled the cage down a ramp to go outside however one of the wheels went into a pothole causing it to topple and strike her foot. Karen felt immediate pain in her toe and went to hospital as a result. Strapping was applied to 2 of her toes and she was advised to take pain medication. In the initial stages after the accident, Karen had difficulty weight bearing for 2 weeks.

Karen contacted Paschal O'Hare Solicitors

A friend of Karen recommended that she contacts our firm to pursue a claim for compensation. We sent a letter of claim on her behalf to the insurer of Asda who accepted liability. We had Karen examined by an orthopaedic surgeon that specialises in foot injuries who provided us with a medical report. We also had her x-rayed which discovered there was an injury to a bone in Karen’s foot and obtained a medical report from the radiologist that indicated the symptoms should last between 12 to 18 months.  

We entered negotiations

During settlement negotiations the insurer made an offer of £2000 which we rejected. They then made an improved offer of £5000 which was again rejected. A final agreement was reached at a figure of £6250.
