Sudden Electrical Flash Into His Face Caused Injury To Mr Mellor’s Eyes – He Wrote to Thank Us

Mr Mellor received £1857 in personal injury compensation for an accident at work, which left him temporarily unable to see. He had been working on a fuse board when the circuit breaker slipped and caught two bare bars that should have had caps on. The loud explosion and flash were likened to a welder’s flash.

Initially he carried on working but awoke during the night, unable to see. He was taken to hospital where his injury was diagnosed as corneal abrasion to both eyes. This condition is intensely painful and although the injury proved not to be permanent, Mr Mellor suffered pain and discomfort for several weeks. His eyes were intermittently blurry and watered extensively, and he had to take painkillers for several weeks until the injury began to heal.

After receiving his settlement cheque for this accident claim, Mr Mellor wrote:

“I am writing to you to thank you for your help with regard to my recent claim. I was very happy with the service I received and will definitely recommend you to other people."
