Factory Accident Victim Recovers Compensation for Fall at Work

Our client, who is from Halifax in Yorkshire, was employed as a food blender a local factory.

She suffered an accident at work while mixing food products. She fell down a metal flight of stairs. The accident was caused by the presence of extra pipework in her work area which had restricted her movement and caused her to loose balance. The piping had been relocated there shortly before the accident, due to a technical problem elsewhere in the factory.

As a result of her fall our client sustained an injury to her neck and lower back.

We agreed to deal with her injury compensation claim on a no win, no fee basis.

The three year limitation period was fast approaching so it was necessary for us to issue Court proceedings against her employers to prevent her claim from becoming statute barred.

Following commencement of proceedings the employers quickly admitted liability for the accident. A medical report on her injuries was obtained from an A&E consultant. We then put forward an offer to settle the claim and after some negotiation with the Defendants, compensation was agreed in the sum of £5,250.00
