David Mole - Accident compensation lawyer

Senior accident compensation lawyer - Newcastle

Originally based in our South Shields office and now working in our Newcastle-upon-tyne office, David has developed in-depth knowledge and experience in securing compensation for clients across the full spectrum of personal injuries. In recent years he has focused on cases involving injury at work, whether caused through an accident at work or because of some negligence by the employer that has resulted in an occupational disease.

His successes have included slip, trip and fall accidents at work, clients attacked at work, and many of the numerous other industrial diseases which can occur, such as vibration white finger. His expertise also includes obtaining compensation for many incidents of clients who were exposed to hazardous substances and have developed industrial dermatitis

David’ strong knowledge of the workplace environment and the regulations that apply to the protection of employees, will ensure that you and your family are awarded the maximum compensation to which you are entitled, if you are injured through the negligence of someone else.

David is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL)

Successful accident compensation claims

Here are just a few examples of accident compensation claims that David has won.

Industrial disease compensation claim – occupational dermatitis

This client was exposed to dangerous substances / lubricants as a sheet metal worker. He had worked for the same employer for several years, who had never provided David's client with any information regarding the possible dangers of working with lubricants. Nor had he been provided with suitable gloves that would protect his hands from the oils with which he worked for several hours each day.

When he became concerned at the condition of his hands, David’s client went to see his GP who initially diagnosed eczema and prescribed cream, which was applied on a daily basis. When there was no improvement, his employer eventually provided cotton gloves, which gave some protection, though the oil still seeped through and had to be washed off several times a day.

Some time later, David’s client changed employer and he was provided with the cotton gloves he was belatedly given by his original employer.

At this time, he found he was unable to make a fist and his hands were flaky and itching, though the symptoms subsided whenever he was away from his work environment. Eventually he was able to see a Dermatologist and was diagnosed with occupational dermatitis.

David obtained supportive medical evidence and brought this case on the grounds that his client’s initial employer had been negligent in not providing suitable personal protective equipment, namely gloves. Initially, the defendant denied liability but shortly after David issued proceedings, he was able to negotiate a satisfactory sum in industrial disease compensation for his client.

Industrial disease compensation claim – Vibration white finger

This client had been employed as a gardener for most of his working life. His duties involved using pedestrian mowers, strimmers and hedge cutters and, until very recently, he had not been given any advice about the dangers of using vibrating tools, or any means of limiting his exposure, such as implementing a job rotation system.

His employer initially denied liability and David used his previous experience and relevant contacts to obtain supportive statements and evidence from his client’s colleagues and experts.

The defendant’s insurer refused to negotiate an acceptable settlement so David issued proceedings. At this stage, liability was admitted and David was able to secure industrial disease compensation for his client, which included an award for future disadvantage on the open labour market.

Work accident compensation claim – Attacked at work

This client is a nurse and was assaulted at work by a patient. We alleged that the patient had a known history of violence and the hospital (client’s employer) failed to take suitable steps to reduce the further risk of violence, despite repeatedly expressing her concerns to Staff nurses on duty at the time. In addition, our client was instructed by a Doctor who later attended the ward, to assist in handling the patient.

The patient then assaulted David’s client, knocking her to the ground where she landed heavily. David brought this case on the grounds that the actions of Staff nurses and the Doctor had exposed his client to a foreseeable risk of injury.

David obtained supportive witness evidence from colleagues and the defendant later admitted liability. However, David was forced to issue Court proceedings as the Defendant failed to offer reasonable compensation. The case was listed at Court for an assessment of damages hearing but David was able to negotiate a settlement shortly before the hearing after the Defendant put forward a reasonable offer.
