Donna Simcock - Occupational disease lawyer

Accident compensation lawyer - Stoke- on-Trent

Donna is yet another example of one of our qualified lawyers who began working for us as a secretary and whom we supported throughout her qualifying years until she was able to take up a position as a lawyer. She now represents injured people across central England.

Based at our Stoke-on-Trent office, Donna has been helping injured people obtain their rightful compensation for many years now and has developed specialist knowledge of occupational disease compensation claims. These include compensation claims for industrial deafness, dermatitis and all causes of occupational asthma.

However, Donna has experience across all types of personal injury compensation claims, including work accident compensation and work injuries resulting from manual handling accidents. There are very many regulations that govern our working life, and Donna's extensive experience in all types of work accidents ensure she understands which area of the law, and which regulations apply to her client's injury, a vital starting point in any accident compensation claim.

A Stoke-on-Trent lawyer, Donna is passionate about obtaining the best outcome for each of her clients and will not hesitate to issue court proceedings if the defendant or their insurers fail to accept liability for their negligence, or having accepted liability, fail to offer a fair level of compensation for her client's injury.

Donna is a member of several legal organisations, including:

Successful occupational disease compensation claims

Here is just a small sample of the many accident and industrial disease compensation claims that Donna has successfully fought.

Work accident compensation claim - Manual handling injury

Donna represented this client when an accident at work caused her to injure her back and aggravate underlying back problems. The underlying back injury was the result of having to carry bags and equipment during the course of her work, which required her to travel to other offices and clients. On one of the visits to another office, she was not provided with a suitable desk, and the only chair available was damaged. As she went to sit on the chair, it rolled back and she fell to the floor.

Donna's client had not been provided with any assistance or lifting / carrying equipment to help with carrying her cases. Donna argued that this was a breach of The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999. The accident involving the defective chair was also a breach of regulations, on this occasion the employers' Liability (Defective Equipment) Act, Regulation 11 of the workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulations.

Her client's employer accepted liability but their insurer refused to offer an acceptable sum in compensation until Donna had issued court proceedings. Prior to the trial, she was able to use all her negotiating skills to obtain fair work accident compensation.

Work accident compensation claim - Manual handling injury

Donna's client in this work accident compensation claim, was injured because of the negligent actions of a colleague. On the day of this accident at work, there were more items than usual being removed from the line for repair. In addition, this is normally a two-man job but Donna's client was also working alone.

Despite repeated requests to stop, the colleague continued to place items on the conveyor for repair. Eventually, the conveyor was unable to cope with the volume and they jammed at the end of the conveyor, requiring Donna's client to manual manoeuvre them. As he did so, he jarred his shoulder and neck. The jamming had been a regular problem when the volume of items was not controlled, and this had been regularly reported to management, as several other incidents had taken place in this area.

The defendant was in breach of several regulations in that he failed to provide a safe working environment for Donna's client, failed to ensure that work equipment was constructed or adapted to be suitable for the purpose, and failed to train other colleagues to take appropriate action when the volume became too great for the conveyor.

Donna was forced to issue court proceedings in order to get the other side to the negotiating table but was able to secure substantial work accident compensation for her client.
