Injury at Work Compensation Awarded to Risk Adviser for Broken Finger Accident

A qualified Fire Surveyor, our client was employed as a Risk Adviser for a national insurance company. At the time of the accident at work, he was on a customer’s site, about to carry out a survey for the purpose of providing a quotation for a contract. He asked us to represent him in bringing a personal injury compensation claim after he suffered an injury at work on the customer’s premises.

As the customer contact showed him the way to their meeting room, our client had already extended his arm to pull open a heavy fire / smoke check door when the customer pre-empted him and pulled the door open with some force. Already committed, and unable to avoid contact with the door, our client heard and felt a crack in the little finger of his hand. Immediately in some considerable pain, our client asked for a first-aider, who strapped the finger until he was able to attend a local hospital. An x-ray revealed he had suffered a serious mallet fracture and that he was unlikely to regain full use.

The defendant had denied liability throughout this accident claim, and had refused an initial offer from our client to settle the case. It was therefore necessary for our expert personal injury lawyers, who specialise in accident at work compensation claims, to issue court proceedings.

Just before the trial date however, our personal injury solicitors were able to negotiate a settlement and our client received compensation of over £2,000 for this injury at work. Had his initial offer been accepted, the defendant would have been spared the cost of taking this case through to court proceedings.

Following the successful outcome, Mr Wilson stated:
“I am delighted that you have negotiated an out of court settlement on my behalf. I confirm that I am entirely satisfied with the offer. May I thank you and your colleague for your help, support and guidance.”
