Delivery driver secures compensation after accident at work

A delivery driver has successfully pursued a compensation claim with the help of our specialist personal injury solicitors, following an accident at work.

Our client was delivering goods to a small supermarket and was asked by the store to reverse his vehicle down the side of the building where the delivery doors were located. The delivery doors were very narrow and caged trolleys containing the goods would have to be unloaded from the vehicle and pushed up a small incline in order to access them.

Caught his hand

One of the trolleys had been excessively loaded with milk and other goods and our client needed the help of a colleague to be able to bring the heavy trolley into the shop. While his colleague was pushing from behind, our client pulled the trolley up the ramp. However, as he did so, he caught his hand in between the trolley and the doorway.

Permanent scars

On account of the accident, our client suffered cuts, bruising and ongoing pain to his hand which meant that he had two months off work. Moreover, while his injuries healed after nine months, his hand was left with two permanent scars.

Following the accident, our client contacted our specialist personal injury lawyers who investigated a claim of compensation. The supermarket admitted liability and our client secured compensation.
