Successful Accident at Work Claims

Below you will find a small selection of the successful accident at work compensation claims Yvonne has dealt with from Thompsons Solicitors’ Birmingham office.

Shoulder injury from mobilising patient

A physiotherapist was helping a patient to become mobile again when he fell back into the chair, pulling her with him. As a result, the physio suffered a serious shoulder injury.

Yvonne made a claim on her behalf and although the employer initially refused to make a settlement, she was able to negotiate £25,000 on behalf of her client after she started proceedings to take the employer to court.

Damage to knee after tripping over pothole

Yvonne’s client was walking across a forecourt at work when he stepped into a pothole and stumbled, twisting his knee as he tried to stay upright. He needed surgery after a tear was discovered to the tissues around the knee and the client was absent from work for several weeks while he recovered.

The client's employers initially denied liability for the accident and refused to pay any compensation, so Yvonne started court proceedings. Before the case was heard in court, however, the employer's insurers paid the client accident compensation for his injury which included a payment for lost earnings.
