Fireman awarded compensation after being injured in equipment handling accident

A fireman has been awarded compensation after his employer's failure to enforce health and safety measures resulted in injuries to his back and wrist.

While attending to a fire our client was made to use a new type of hose but had not been given the training required to handle this new piece of equipment. An incorrect pressure level caused him to be knocked to the ground and sustain soft tissue damage to his right wrist and a strained back. He went to see his local GP who referred him to an occupational health specialist.

Following the injury our client had to take a total of eight weeks off work and was placed on lighter duties for a further six months.

After contacting our personal injury specialists he was awarded compensation for the injury and the pain he experienced.
