Accident lawyers help secure compensation for crush injury

Thompsons Solicitors Scotland
Thompsons Solicitors Scotland

Thompsons secured £12,500 for Mr Alan Brown following an accident in which he was involved during the course of his employment with Co-Operative Group Limited.

At the time of the accident Mr Brown, a warehouse operative who had been with his employer for four years, was attending at the water cooler when a colleague lost control of a picking truck which subsequently crashed into him.

Mr Brown sustained a severe crush injury to his leg and was also affected by a depressive illness following the accident. A Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and Consultant Psychiatrist were able to provide independent confirmation of the injuries which were caused by Mr Brown’s accident.

Mr Brown’s employers did not respond to calls for an out of court settlement and so proceedings had to be raised at the Court of Session. Mr Brown rejected an initial offer, but was able to agree settlement in the sum of £12,500.

Seonaid Brophy who handled Mr Brown’s claim said “ Mr Brown suffered both physical and psychological injuries following this avoidable workplace accident. I am pleased that his claim was concluded and he received the compensation that he was due.”
