Compensation awarded for hospital worker struck by bed

A hospital worker was awarded a compensation package after contacting our accident at work specialists, following an injury to his left knee sustained whilst moving a hospital bed.

The man was transporting an unoccupied hospital bed between facilities. The latch gave way, and the bed sprung up and struck him on the left knee, causing a deep laceration.

Initial medical examination did not find signs of a sustained condition, and the wound was left untreated. He returned to work, but struggled as the pain intensified, before collapsing during his shift. The man visited Hull Royal Infirmary, where an MRI scan revealed his knee required surgery. Overall, the man required five weeks off work.

After contacting our specialist solicitors, he was awarded a compensation package for his injuries.
