Window cleaner awarded compensation after chemical burn

A window cleaner has been awarded damages after a cleaning chemical caused damage to his foot.

Without his knowledge, his supervisor gave him a chemical that was different from the products he usually worked with. He was not provided with suitable Personal Protective Equipment and used his standard issue steel capped boots to complete the job. When some chemical splashed onto his left boot, it caused damage to his little toe on his left foot.

He experience pain in his foot for about a month following the accident and had to go to hospital once a week for three weeks, using his annual leave to attend and spending money on travel to his appointments.

After contacting our specialist accident at work solicitors, he was awarded damages for his injuries.
