Art gallery employee compensated for fractured toe

An art gallery employee, who was injured at work as a result of not being provided with the correct equipment, contacted our specialist personal injury lawyers to investigate a claim of compensation.

Our client was asked by the gallery management to move a heavy wooden bench that was two metres long. Given the difficulty of moving the bench alone, he was assisted by an artist in the gallery, who had not been trained on moving heavy items.

The artist accidentally dropped the bench on our client’s toe. On account of the accident, our client suffered a fractured big toe and experienced severe pain for 5 weeks. The client continues to suffer from mild stiffness in the toe and intermittent pain.

Could have been prevented

Our client had to use crutches to move around, and as a result was unable to attend lectures for his university degree for six weeks following the accident.

Our client’s employer admitted breaching its health and safety obligations by failing to provide steel toe capped boots, which would have prevented the injury, and for failing to ensure that he was assisted by a properly trained colleague. With the help of our specialist lawyers, our client received full compensation.
