HGV driver receives compensation for crushed foot

A year in recovery

A man, who was an agency-employed HGV driver, has successfully pursued a compensation claim with the help of our specialist personal injury solicitors following an accident at work.

Our client was hired by an agency to service a manufacturing depot as a qualified HGV driver. However, while supervising a forklift truck operator, who was an employee of the manufacturing company, the operator mishandled the forklift which resulted in our client’s foot being crushed under the full weight of the vehicle.

A year in recovery

Having suffered a crush injury to his left foot, our client experienced severe pain and discomfort for a whole month before symptoms became more moderate and gradually improved with ongoing medical treatment. The attending doctor assessed that symptoms would resolve within 12 months.

After several delays from the defendant, liability was finally admitted six months after the accident when the manufacturer accepted that they were responsible for their employee’s mistakes. Our specialist solicitors went on to secure full compensation for his injuries.
