£35,000 Compensation For Accident at Work

No Win No Fee Compensation Claims

Mr Burns worked at Eurocentral, Mossend. His job involved unloading new cars from locomotive transporters.

On the day of his accident Mr Burns required to climb down from the locomotive onto the track side because the vehicle he was attempting to remove would not start. There were no steps and no handrails and Mr Burn fell and fractured the bone in the top of his leg (the femur).


At first the employers refused to pay Mr Burns compensation because they said that they had done nothing wrong.

Mr Burn's Personal Injury lawyer would not accept this. Thompsons legal team carried out a great deal of research into the designs of rail locomotives which led them to the conclusion that there was a great deal that the employers could and should have done, in design terms, to ensure that Mr Burns was not exposed to the risk of injury.

Thompsons instructed an expert report from an industrial engineer who specialised in the design of locomotive rolling stock to confirm the position. Thompsons research and the engineers report convinced the insurers to make payment to Mr Burns of £35,000 in compensation.
