Accident at work compensation for worker injured by moving vehicle

Our specialist accident at work lawyer was able to secure over £200,000 in accident at work compensation for this seriously injured client. He was working in a site compound when a van, driven by another employee, struck him from behind and drove over his leg.

Injuries suffered in the accident at work

Our client was taken immediately to hospital and underwent x-rays and a scan. These revealed that he had several fractures to his leg and that he had sustained a very serious injury. He had to undergo an operation to insert a pin through the bone to correct the damage.

When he was released from hospital, our client was only able to walk with the aid of crutches and for only short distances at a time. Longer journeys required him to use a wheelchair, and he has been advised that his recovery may take some time.

Causes of the accident at work

Our client had been correctly dressed with high visibility clothing, hard hat and protective boots. However, the investigation of the accident revealed that there had been no designated safe routes for pedestrians, or separate routes for vehicles travelling around the site. This has since been corrected with the addition of a fence to manage traffic access to the site, as well as levelling of the previously uneven surface throughout the whole site.

Accident at work compensation

Although the defendant admitted liability for this accident at work, we were forced to issue court proceedings in order to negotiate a fair sum in accident at work compensation. Shortly before the trial date, the other side made an offer in excess of £200,000, which our client accepted on our advice.
