Hospital cleaner awarded compensation after suffering laceration

A hospital cleaner has reached a settlement with their employer following a difficult case after contacting our accident at work specialists.

While working in the endoscopy department the cleaner was taking out household and clinical waste to an outdoor rubbish compound. After disposing of the waste they turned around, knocking their head against an open window causing lacerations to the face. The window had been extended past the restrictive clasps and presented a danger to those working in the rubbish compound.

The employer consistently denied liability but our accident at work specialists were able to reach a settlement, after commencing legal proceedings, on behalf of the employee for the injury they suffered.
